My biggest worry is finding a way to shift, because obviously the steering column doesnt have a shifter, but I have a Monte Carlo with a floor shifter. Thats hooked to a th 350 tranny. How would I go about shoving this V8 into the truck and having a shifter ? has any one came across this problem ? if so how did you do it ?.

Questions: How to Convert a Manual Chevy S10 into a Automatic.
Could I run long tubed Holley afterburner headers ?
How Could I weight the back down to get traction ?.


Thanks
Get this book "Chassis Engineering" by Herb Adams, there's more to getting traction than adding weight to the rear. Amazon or where-ever.

Get these books by Mike Knell to save having to learn by doing on S-10/15 conversions.
"Chevrolet S-10 Truck V-8 Conversion Manual" and "Chevrolet TPI & TBI
