There is an S-10 that has been running around my area for about 20 years and it has a Toronado trans axle. He used widened flares on the rear wheels to make up for the wider stance. Everyone suggesting that is probably the best, easiet way.

There was a mid engined VW Bus in hotrod magazine some years back that had the engine trans and rear end mounted on a swing arm.

Use a '66 to '76 Toronado or Eldorado transaxle. I agree. They used these to put v8's in the rear seat of Corvairs.

Another option, perhaps not for you, is a Porsche G50 transaxle. They modify these to be put in sandrails and kit built supercars, to take 450hp+ from american V8s. This isn't the cheapest route, and it is a manual. Another option would be a Corvair transaxle driven backwards. I know street cars on street tires can put 400hp through them for tens of thousands of miles, as long as you're not doing holeshots and burnouts.
We did a design for a supercar builder looking for "1200hp in a rear biased AWD platform" which never materialized; and another one for a replacement, all new T/axle for the GT40/ Ford GT and GT40-type kit car market; which again ran out of money before it got off the ground.

Here's an interesting thread on using transaxles for "loCost" mid engined variants

Most used the Corvair Saginaw 4 speed adapted to a SBC which could also be a good choice for a transaxle for the rear engined S-10.

You could also use the front clip off of a 1993+ Cadillac FWD car with the 275hp or 300hp Northstar DOHC 4.6 engine and 4T80e transaxle and install it at the back.

Someone built a mid 90's Cadillac STS that has the 2 sets of engine/transaxle, 1 set up front and the other set in the rear. I dont remember if the rear whelles steered or if they were locked out in the straight neutral position.
