I have a 86 and a 96 s10 both with v8's and did not have to bang in any of the firewall like some people do. The 86 has a little more room on the sides compared to the second gen s10 94 and up. I cut the front of the radiator support to move the radiator forward in order to run a mechanical fan and the cross member for the transmission had to be customized for a turbo 350 tranny and also the drive shaft had to be cut and made to fit the turbo 350. As far as mounts goes the 86 has welded mounts and the 96 has the 2.5 v6 motor mounts with a aftermarket brackets to fit them on the side of the engine. I could not tell you who made them as I bought the truck with a 350 vortec installed so I don't know and the guy bought from was Mexican and he could not speak English well so could not ask much.
