I'm wanting to replace the frame and engine on my 93 "Short" van...I believe 110 inch wheelbase. However, I want to replace it with newer, upgraded Chevy parts....hopefully 2010 or newer. I know a lot of folks on here will not agree with me and want to keep it original. But, anyone that has helpful input, advice, or experience...PLEASE HELP!

Pretty sure that these vans are unibody.

Correct. His '93 Chevy G20 is a uni-body. 1996 and up are full frame-on-body vehicles.

Ok, not a problem. I've decided I just want to update the drivetrain, engine/transmission. If anyone has any experience with that, I'd appreciate the advice!

2010 is an LS Swap. Hot Rod Garage did an LS swap on you tube. This is probably not a project that someone posting basic questions on a forum should tackle, it's up to you. I don't think anyone here will care if you keep it stock or not so you don't have to worry there. An easier project you can upgrade the 93 computer to a better 94-95 ecm and keep the TBI. The later style v8 vortec heads up to 2002 can be fitted, even try burning your own chips if you're up for a challenge. The 4l60e can be upgraded to 2001 and later 4l65e specs. All it takes is time and lots of money.
