Manual trans complicates things immensely for exhaust. Why few people do it. Better to go with automatic, if vehicle had one originally. If S10 was original 5-speed I would make sure you want to do this swap before you get started. You won't get A/C and a radiator in stock location to work with a V8. They don't go back that far. In a S10 the engine goes where the engine fits, and where everything attached to it clears!
