Myy brother had an S-10 with a 4 banger with a 4 speed tran and he was able to chirp the tires in third gear. Thats how light the rear of the truck is.

If I really wanted to and had a good enough stretch of road, the 2.8 v6 will do it in 4th. Not very loud, but enough so you know it did it.

Big block? worried about weight? How bout a 472 or 500 out of a Caddie?? They weight about as much as a SBC. After you swap out the intake to alum. Of course the tourch and MIG welder will have to be used to get her in there. Just a thought! www.500cid.com

I just bought a 472 caddy and t-400 tranny (for $125 might I add) and plan on putting it in an s10. I have looked over www.500cid.com alot and plan on going thru with it as soon as I find a suitable s10 for the transplant.

true big blocks weigh more, so get some alum. heads and make it a little lighter, they can and do fit, however you have to do some fudging with the fire wall to get the distributor to fit and may have to relieve it down by the exhaust, or have some custom headers made, kinda like a gasser. If you've got the money go big block, build a 468 with dart pro 1's get a wild sold roller cam, single plane intake and a dominator, run a dana sixty rear end shorten it and put the biggest meats you can find with a racing 4links coilover set up. run a forged lower end and put 200 horse worth of laughing gas to it, and send the small block boys packing, big dog is comin out to play so the little guys stay on the porch.

It will fit with a little time and lots of patience. I've been driving mine some during the week and on the weekends to local car shows. It has a/c, p/s, p/w, p/b, cc, automatic on the column, so far I have close to 3,000 miles on it. Its a blast to drive! E-mail me & I will send some pics.
By the way it is For Sale.

Oh yeah it will work with enough mods and patience depending on exactly how you want it setup. Check this awesome ride out-BBC 540 cubic inches with a blower!!

A buddy of mine had ran with a 454 in his S10. It started as a Pro street project with a "mild" BB and tubbed with 4 link and yes he made his own headers. By the time he was done it had become a 1/4 miler . The thing that was nice was how consistant it was. Then he sold it to go faster
