Nice BBC s-10's!


I think its almost easier to drop a BBC in an s-10 than it is to drop a 351w in a ranger.


My brother had a 468 in a 83 s-10 blazer, that sucker was a blast, I enjoyed tinkering on that thing for him. Talk about torque..he cracked the floor pan from the drivers pedals to the rear of the front seat.

Here's a article I scanned a while back...

That's like my favorite V8 s10 of all time. Just goes to show that you don't have to Chop beat and hack to get a bigblock in a s10.
You'd be surprised at how many people think you've got to butcher stuff to get even a smallblock in one.

I think the only major thing done to my brothers s-10 was a small dimple in the side of the trans tunnel.

This is my favorite picture but I am biased.

Besides my BBS-10 I have a friend that has one set up alot like mine but the difference is the engine mounts that he used, which was the 3/8 thick mounting plates from Hooker. It set the engine really high but there was very little cutting he had to do plus his doesn't have A/C. I used 60's rubber mounts that bolt to the engine and welded mounting tabs to the cross member to bolt the mounts to. This set the engine very low in the engine compartment and created more work but it has the stock style BB short water pump assessories on it, A/C, P/S, C/C, P/B, and the stock hood will shut!
Don't let anyone fool you, what I did to make it all work and drive right took alot of attention to detail to look close to a stock BB... just in the S-10
If anyone wants more details I can e-mail you what I did in a Word document.
