It all depends. The only v8 swap I did I was able to retain my stock sbc oil pan. It really just depends on the shape, its hit or miss.

Re: 91 s10 v8 swap

yes it was pretty easy my truck is a 91 standard cab standard bed that was a 4 cylender, manual trans. that i converted to a 350 sbc (out of a 78 3/4 to van and used the vans oil pan with no problems encounterd) with a TH350 trans (out of a 71 car?) . I took the front clip off it is pretty easy to do and will save many headaces. the engine and trans went in as one unit bolted together. I used JTR mounts and used the blazer mounting slots with a 1/8inch spacer plate on the drivers side wich put the engine low enuff that I can use a 3 inch tall air filter mounted in a one inch spacer and i can shut the stock hood (no cowl). Also I only needed to hammer the floor boad on the passernger side where my headmen shorty header exits at. And you should be able to reuse your stock trans crossmember, I did, all I had to do was move the crossmember to the forward set of holes on the drivers side. Also for the fuel system my truck was a TBI so to lower the pressure for a caburated set up I used a mallory return style fuel pressure regulater to keep the in tank fuel pump set up.
