Having thoughts of doing an LS engine swap. The 307 is healthy but thirsty. I have replaced the 3-on-the-tree with a 700R4 which helped push the MPG to 15 to 18 highway if I’m really easy on it and a good tail wind. She has a 3.72 rear. I’ve heard some good things about the LS engine family and wonder if I should pursue this. Have 0 experience with the LS and would like to hear some input from anyone that has some. Like what years, size ect. I see there are kits out there for the 67 – 72 C10s. Would like to keep the 700R4 or would I need to go with a electronic OD tranny? My objective would be higher MPG and improved drive ability, not high performance/power.
