Re: quigley 2000 gmc savanna/ parts interchangability?
Not to sound callous, but how deep are you into this rig financially? Not looking for you to tell us what you paid, but you should weigh the cost to get it functional versus the cost to get a running rig.
Are you comfortable with the available power from a V6? Lower displacement doesn't necessarily equte to higher gas mileage. If the V6 has to work really hard, it can easily get lower mileage than a V8.
BTW, sorry to hear about your experience, especially as it was due to a family friend.
