Truck Chevy 1994 Engine / Transmission

Asked by Jun 25, 2017 at 04:53 PM about the 1994 Chevrolet C/K 1500 WT Standard Cab SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

MI bought my Daughter a Chevy truck, time for a new engine and a
MANUAL transmission, right now it's an auto transmission. Have had
trouble finding what the motor actually is, it would seem it's a 350/270HP
"Vortec." V8.

What would be the best economical crate replacement for the truck AND
including a manual transmission? Want to be able to use reg gas [87]. I'm
not sure that HP is of great importance over stock; I'm sure there is an
upgrade that would help with fuel economy with around 290 to 315HP?

Appreciate some GURU or smart individual, helping to keep my Daughter
on the road in her favourite truck. The current engine has 300,000 miles
and burns a quart of oil a week, the transmission is weak now..

It also needs a front bumper and grill...Where would I look for those two
items that's reasonable?   72116.

Cheers

I just want a replacement engine and transmission links or ideas. This time I don't want rebuilds. Now, thanks for the grill info, that and a bumper can be used, just need to be functional. Cheers
