Its OK to go that route. I was first looking at a Mercedes i6 fi diesel to
go in my truck. Whatever floats your boat.
Try the 4.3 Chevy v6. It comes with fi and basically it's a 350 cut down by
2 cylinders, so all the mount kits, pulley kits, trans kits etc... for the
small block Chevy will work for you. Plus the Astro vans came with factory
tube headers! (some came with 5 speeds). In the future if you want to
upgrade to a v8 just move the mount forward and bolt it in.

Subject: [oletrucks] Fuel Injected V-6
Has anybody out there experimented by pulling out their old
216 or 225
and putting in a small to midsize V-6 with fuel injection
attached to an
automatic overdrive tranny. I'd like to upgrade, but I am
of the next time gas goes over $2.00+/gal.
I'm thinking of a 3.0 Liter F**d or a similar GM product
know a lot of us like the venerable 350, but my experience
with them is
that they are somewhat thirsty, except when parked. I think
it would be
grand to get 25 to 30 mpg as we cruise along, lookin good.
Any suggestions or admonitions?
