D90 Engine Swap/Conversion

Hoping the group can provide some directional guidance. I'm considering an engine conversion for my '94 D90, to a Chevy 350. I'm not looking for crazy power (maybe 330hp/400 ft/lb).


Has anyone done this? Aside from engine/mounts/etc., what work is involved for everything to run smoothly (tran/diff/etc.)? And, to accomplish everything needed, what kind of all-in cost should I expect?


I should also note that I don't do much serious off-roading (drive around town on weekends, on the beach for family bonfires, etc.). Only once in a blue moon do I really get in the thick.


Any advice/recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

Do a search on engine swaps, you will most likely end up buying one of the LS conversion kits that have been discussed at length.

Most economical and serviceable v8 swaps IMO, but def throw LS conversion in the old search thread and hang on to your knickers!
