Post V8 GMC S15 Swap...few pics..Update..

Well I am getting there.

The 355 is bolted in finally. Just ordered my tranny shift kit, 2500 Stall Converter and flexplate. All I need now is my electric fuel pump, distributor, starter, plugs and plug wires...(And various hoses for fuel and radiator)

Couple pics of the engine in the truck. Its a 85 GMC S15 2wd Ext Cab.





Also need to get carpet and a shifter. Body work and tires/wheels will come later...AFTER I have it running.

Havent really gotten into the rearend yet.

Id like to find one that would swap in without any modifications.

For the time being I will probably run the stock one until I figure out what to do. (I wont get any traction...so it shouldnt go out on me that quick. Hehe)

Your definately right the stock rear will hold up for ever. I'm using one now because of the gears its got in it. And the lack of traction from these trucks you couldn't possibly break the stock one. Well OK its possible but I haven't done it yet. Swapping it out this summer with a 4:10 posi, having it narrowed now. Can't wait, but the stock one'll do while you have to use it.

How much is the narrowing of that 4.10 costing you?


Id like to have 3:73 posi on this one. Iv heard of people getting gears/posi unit for these stock S-10 rearends and having no problems... I havent checked the rearend to see what gears it has yet.

Also hear of people swaping in Ford 9's, Chevy 10 bolts, 12 bolts..(Narrowed of course) Then I have heard of Grand National rear ends getting swapped in, but that wont happen because I sure the hell wont find one of those around here. hehe.
