Youd have to take it all apart, really. Swap crankshafts, do alot of internal work. Especially your rods, pistons, rockers. Etc. Basically, you dont want to have a larger crankshaft to work with a motor that hasnt been upgraded all around, ya know what im sayin?

I WAS gonna do the same and go that route. 97stanger referred me to a guy whos custom making a brand new 4.2L engine for me. He did the same and hes doing very good right now. Should give him a PM and ask for more details.

since everyone is mentioning my name, i might as well chime in. lol. The engine you looked at from SSMS is way to overpriced. You can get a much better custom built one from precision for a lil over 4k. I would recommend buying the 4.2. Since it is a 3.8 stroked everything will swap over to the 4.2. Plus you get a new engine with 0 miles on it. OR, you could get a stroker kit from SSMS for way to much money and stroke it out on an engine that it already tired to begin with. If your just looking for a learning experience, get the kit. But if you want something that is even better, get the full engine custom made. So, ultimately ,the decision is up to you, but i recommend getting the new engine. Its just a smarter buy all together. Plus if your going to be putting poweradders on it in time, you can get the CR made to spec. If you want more details, just give me a PM.

well with a 4.2l drop, bolt up to bellhouseing, then to all the engine mounts so technically it is bolt on.

I would consider a bolt on job max of about 5hrs and thats being nice...except for headers swaps

disconnecting all the hoses, electricals and un-bolting engine mounts then hoisting it out would take more then its fair share of time, and thats the easy part. put in the new engine, and putting it back then seeing what you missed, putting oil, bolts in, hoses in, eletrics..

almost anything can be considered bolt on
heads
turbo
s/c
nitrous

Correct me if I am wrong, but the block on both is not new, but rebuild, so getting a kit vs getting a built engine makes no difference as far as how "tired" the block is. The main difference is, that there might not be a good shop around you to do the work, plus with a built engine you can get better components -- heads, pistons, etc, while with a kit you are reusing as much of the components as possible.

Thats why most places charge a core fee, so they can get your block and rebuild it.
