i have a sea ray sundeck 190 4.3 v6 engine and was curious if i could swap a chevy motor in its place as yall should know the 4.3 is eccentially the same motor minus two cyl. people do it in s10 and backed the blazers all the time and recently i didnt get it winterized in time and it cracked the block and instead of goin back with that smaller motor spend the money and get a v8 any answers about if it should even bolt up to the transom or not anything will help thanks much

go with a 350

I am going to do the same thang. (4.3 swap 5.7) all you need is new manifolds and 350(ebay has the manifold) with a one piece rear main 1988 or newer.
