The 1999 is a 350 vortex 5.7L and I was told the 1995 was also a 350 vortex 5.7L but the intake is different and now I am worried I bought a motor that I am not even gonna be able to use. I was told they are different blocks but is that gonna matter? I have all the parts water pump, intake etc. From the 95 so if I use the parts for a 1995 will it still hook up right? I had a cracked block on my 1999 suburban and it could not be fixed. So I bought the 1995 thinking it was a 1999 the same as I pulled.

I see a 1996-2000 long block tahoe engine and a 1996-1999 suburban long block engine working.How the 1995 one is different couldnt tell you.We dont have acess to interchangable software.I use http://www.rockauto.com to answer compatiabilty questions and thats what they say.Junk yards have that software though.I would never buy and engine without knowing it would work for sure.

I believe the 1995 engine is a throttle body injector engine which is different from the 99 engine which is a multi point injector. Also, the 95 is an OBD I engine and the 99 is an OBD II engine. I think adapting the 95 engine to the 99 truck would be very difficult.

That's right, it's a TBI engine, not a Vortec and nearly impossible to adapt, not to mention, against Federal law to do so.
