Default 85 Blazer 2.8 to 5.0 conversion - posible?

I have an 85 Blazer with a 2.8 V-6 in it. I live in a city with a lot
of hills, so this setup isn't working for me right now. I've heard of
Blazers with a 305 in them. I don't know much about cars, so I was
wondering if a 305 would fit in there, if I'd need to change a bunch
of stuff with my tranny around or what. It's a 4x4 so... if you have
any suggestions, please enlighten me

Check out:

They sell a manual that has everything you'll need to successfully do
the swap. A 305/350 will definitely fit and can be smog legal, but
does require some modifications that are spelled out in the manual.
If you are serious about doing the swap, this will be money well
spent.
