I found this old add for 1988 G20 LS swap. At first I thought it might be Roadrunner212's but I don't think it is.

Lotsa pics

There are hundreds of pics on this link, and I have lots of questions. Would really like to ask about what I saw in the chassis pics. It appears the swap put the engine back in the center instead of the stock location. Anyone have any info on this van?

It's a sloppy swap. There's a number of corners cut, and I wouldn't follow it. They likely used the cheap flat plate mounts. I think the Dirty Dingo ones are superior.

Check out my swap on my old van here:
