Post Big block S-10 a/c heat daily driver

if anyone has ever wanted to build a big block s-10 it can be done i have a 396bbc 91-s-10
1.you do not need to cut or bash the firewall
2.hei distributers will fit
3.front plate mounts are the best way
4.4.3 serpentine setups can be installed with the use of a front plate saves space
5.you can have a/c and heat i do and its great.
6.the battery will fit up front
7.will need a cutting torch and welder
8.can fab your own headers i did for $50
9.will need a good alluminum radiator must!!!
yes it is alot easier to put a small block in and yes they make alot of power but there isnt a chevy man out there that can say a 600hp sbc is more streetable than a 600hp bbc its impossible smaller heads shorter stroke you need alot more lift, duration, head work, high rpm intake, high rpm stall ect
plus its different there are plenty of 383 s-10 and yes i picked the smallest of the big blocks but this motor is just a template it will soon be replaced by a moderate 496 with an honest 500+ streetable horsepower
if anyone has any questions or would like to see how mine is set up i would be glad to send picks and assist it is not easy and some machine work is involved but hey the best challenges are the ones that people say cant be done
