Re: 4x4 5.3 conversion!! How hard????
There are no bolt in options for a 5.3 conversion, 5 speed/4WD S10/ZR2.
Anything will require modification to the drivetrain, geometry, mounts, crossmembers, etc.
The stock S10 5 speed won't hold up behind a 5.3 with an 18 year old who says, "I am strictly a stick shift driver. I can not stand the Auto trannies"
If you have to have a stick and a manual transmission/5.3+ motor, you should go to a full size truck.
You can do in in a 2WD with less effort.
