I ended up blowing the 2.8 up and had a friend with all needed to make the 350 swap so I did it. He had done it in an *-10 and wrecked it. So the transfer was pretty painless. When i got the car I was amazed at it'* pep with the little V6 in it.

I loved my 82 Z28. It had the G92 rearend option and lasted me a long time. Guy I sold it too ran it into the ground and had a few accidents in it.

One area to check for rust is the floorpan. The airvents are plastic and they start to break and then water comes in and dripped behind the pedals and under the carpet on mine. Had a rust hole in the floorboards on mine.
