just did one last year with my buddy. the headers was the only really tight spot. you can build them mounts purdy easy. the mounts you can buy work dang good too but you want the engine back as far as you can.we used a bfh alot too. course we moved the engine back 3" more so beat and cut it was.i think your gona like that s10.this one hauls ***.we added 2 long leaf springs to each side and could still be better set up. still hops a bit at times.i think if theres any way you can build your headers youd be better off. this 383 puts out over 400 hp and the only headers we found to fit are shortys and they suck big time. way too small dia. too.we're gona have to build some.good luck and yes everthing will fit with the 60$ type mounts but it is a bit tight. this one fit but when we moved it back it was a pita.
