Doesn't look bad for a 20 year old truck.

Looks rust free...something you’d never see in WI!

You can find the conversion kits to go from the 4.3 to the V8s pretty easily, never looked for the 4 cyl conversions though. I've seen some pretty quick S10s with the V8 conversions.

Just as a heads up, if you live near a Pick N Pull, their engines actually have a "warranty" of sorts that guarantee that they will run and are a great alternative if you are building a little street rod type of truck. They are CHEAP, and can be a great deal if you know what you are looking for.

Do some research and you can find a higher production set of headers for the swap instead of buying the high dollar S10 v8 swap headers.

6L LS with a T56 would really get that little truck moving if you could keep the rear tires hooked up!
Fairly simply swap, if you went 4L60E it could be done cheaply (the T56 is the not so cheap part). And due to it being a 98, a lot of the wiring could be simplified and re-used.

Shoehorn that Ram Jet 502 crate motor in there. You could fill the bed with cement...it might hook upw00t

I don’t like the step side cabs. Those things are really cool frame dropped and bagged. I remember grinding away at those frames for countless hours in 2001 in my buddies garage.

I don't like the flair side at all but the good part is that they are a desirable bed for some different cruisers. I have a guy who will swap a excellent shape fleet side bed for this flair side and give me $500 so I am jumping on that deal. Gonna then tub the rear fender wells and drop in a new narrowed axle to handle the extra power when I drop in the V8 .

There is a company that makes a IRS swap set up for these so you can put a vette drive train in them. I'm surprised there isn't more car stuff posted on the non moto section, I know a lot of bike guys are also car guys. I know thats how I spend most of my money anyways.

My first vehicle was an 89 s-10 in high school. A few dudes I went to school with put a 305 or 350 in them and I wanted to do that so bad.

I just found another S10 this one is a black SS model fleetside for $500 bucks with 140K miles. I am running out of room to store them.

Work on stuff like this ever day.

Put a ,zz6 in a 32,chev y few weeks back with a b&,m th700 and nine inch 4 link.

The th700 is a great tranny if worked over but stock ones are turds made for 190,hp 80s v8.

With 30% overdrive and three tight ratios to get ya going.


On the truck I'd go old-school with a tunnel ram dual quad on a 327 with early double hump heads .

Tunnel rams just look cool.

But,I'd have a Ford ranger.

That's badass. Best looking tire of all time too. I dream of finding a set of dead stock 33x13.5 baja claws with some 20x12 Welds.

Yeah at pine point they were immaculate. Unfortunately being in the Ohio winter and it having to sit outside since my GTO got the garage...Mother Nature and salt did a number on the wheels. Didn’t help I was lazy either lol. Bought a new truck and plan to fix this one up again someday. I want to get rid of the 350 Chevy and replace it with a 5.3 LS

Ive got an 83 porsche 944 with a 350 chevy in it mated to the 5 speed porsche transaxle.
Wilwood brakeb stiffer front springs for the engines weight, all custom gauges in stock dash, single exit exhaust.

Just dropped it off for paint this morning.

It has a gps based speedo that can log 1/4 mile times, 0-60 times, highest recorded speed and more things like that.
I did 2 0-60 "runs" first try was a 6.5 second try a few days later with a passenger was 6.2. Not bad considering it is a gentle launch not trying to break it! The car gets up and goes even more so than that 0-60 time shows. Its legitamately about twice the hp from the stock 4 cylinder.

Ive converted 2 s10s one long box one short box and a s10 blazer to a 350SB. twice i machined my own engine mounts once i bought the kit. THOSE WERE THE 3 BEST VEHICLES I OWNED. they hauled ass and were fun to drive. please do this. now i want to do another one. what a blast!

No pics because it kind of isnt much to look at currently. Next week after paint and install the hood scoop should be much less an eye sore!
