I used a b234 lower end on my viggen rebuild. The only thing you have to be sure of is that the B234 is from a 1993 or newer TURBO 9000. The other thing is that you need to use the headgasket from the B234 and not he B235for compression issues. All in all, the B234 has stronger pistons and rods. It has also been debated that the actual block is stronger, but I don't know if I buy that, they are nearly identical except for a few extra screw holes. Let me know if you have any other questions. Basically use all the T7 ancillaries, and the B234 block and internals and you will be all set.
