Nice thing about the old school chevy vehicles is that the engine mounting holes were basically already in the frames. Then swapping from one carb vehicle to another carb vehicle is pretty much making it fit. Then you just hook up the starter, distributor, fuel lines, and bam it's ready to fire since the entire exhaust would typically swap over without modification as well. Unfortunately, things aren't that simple these days. It's a bit more complicated than that with fuel pumps and wiring but in the end, it's a much better product. There are literally youtube video explaining, outlining, and completing the majority of the steps of 4.2 to 4.0 so you can physically see what has to happen. Unlike V8 swaps, the old 4.2 to 4.0 is a lot more straight forward....you just have to follow the procedure.
