    I would assume you will need a custom cut drive shaft. What year is the S10?

    Google 'Jagsthatrun" and they have a book telling you how.

    S10Extreamist.com has a bunch of guys who did it.

    Lots of tips like changing to a three row rad core for the extra cooling, lo-po camaro cast manifolds work w/ no/little body lift...those guys have done it.

    I think Summit Racing sells a kit.

    What year S-10?
    The first generation square body S-10 was real easy to drop a V-8 in, especially 83/87.
    A few years back I was in buisness with a friend doing turn-key to parts+ builders for V-8 S-10's, we specialized in 1st generation trucks.
    The second generation S-10 took a little more work but is still not a bad builder, a little engine compartment sheet metal trimming is required but nothing major, electronics is more in depth, which is why we tried to stick to 83/87 trucks, but with a little time and patience it can be worked out.
