NationMaster - Encyclopedia: GM Vortec engine (6699 words)
The Vortec 3500, or L52, is a 3.5 L straight-5 in the GM Atlas engine family, derived from the Vortec 4200 DDOHC I6 found in the GMT360 series trucks (Chevrolet Trailblazer, among others).
The Vortec 4300 is a 90° V6 truck engine, replacing the Chevrolet 250 in light trucks and 200/229 90 degree V6s in passenger cars (the 200 and 229 were known as the V6-90, both were shortened versions of the Small Block Chevrolet).
It is the smallest of the Generation III Vortec truck engines and was the replacement for the 5.0 L 5000 L30.
Vortec Conversion (2219 words)
In the simplest of terms, the Vortec is a Sequential Port Fuel Injection (SFI) engine, which utilizes a sophisticated computer system known as the "Vehicle Control Module", or VCM for short, in conjunction with numerous sensors to monitor and adjust the control of the engine.
I also elected to install a crankcase-oil cooler (utilizing the stock Vortec autotranny cooler) mounted in front of the radiator on the driver's side, and this necessitated moving the radiator frame rearward 0.5" in order to provide space for the oil cooler between the radiator and the TLC front bib.
Understanding the Vortec electronics and ultimately mating the Vortec wiring harness with the existing TLC wiring was, for this electronics-challenged Cruiserhead, the most difficult aspect of the conversion.
