4.6 S-10? I think you mean 4.3. And no, that won't fit without some work, as in fabbing your own mounts. If you're going to put a different engine in it, go to a larger pontiac and get the custom mounts. The mounts were just discussed not too long ago, look at some of the older posts.
However, I'd stick with what you've got. It'll get decent mileage, thereby saving you gas money, which you can put into your truck your building. My winter car is a 1.5L Oldsmobile Cutlass, and I'm perfectly happy with it. JMHO
