This is my new toy/project, it's a 95 gmc that I picked up for $2700 a few months ago. Runs good the body and interior are in good shape except the paint, the clear coat is in rough shape. The truck has had a bit of work done to it before I got it, some of it was done right and some of it is interesting. My main goal for now is to get it mechanically sound since it's been sitting for sometime.

The air cleaner and intake are in the worst shape the rest is mostly dirt, but the engine is bone stock and runs strong. Im wondering what caused the rust, my guess is from sitting so long and water coming in from the cowl hood. I plan to start sanding and prep for new paint soon I hope.

First things first. Remove engine and paint compartment. Then replace engine with LS1. You'll thank me later

I'm not planing on doing an engine swap just yet, but I will agree with you on the LS1 it has more power than the low compression BB that's in there now and will probably get better mpg
