  1. 5.3 swap

    LSx Discussion
    I have a 1989 S-10 blazer I’m putting a lm7 5.3 in it with a 4l80e transmission just wondering if I would have to change the cross member or anything or what would I have to notch also also what motor mounts are y’all running? Can y’all give me some links for parts, interior, engine, visual, etc
  2. Looking to swap an LT4 into an 82 s10

    S10 / S15
    I was looking to see if its easy to fit an LT4 motor with an 8L90-E transmission into a 1982 chevy s10. Not to sure on the trim level but if it helps it has a V6 that no longer runs. If its not an easy swap I am curious to see what is.
  3. Chevy s10 engine swap

    S10 / S15
    Hey guys, I have a 1986 s10 4x4 with a 2.8 60° v6 and a 700r4 transmission. I got bored and started browsing around looking at different chevy engines online and I found the 3.6 lfx v6. I started to look at the specs and I was blown away seeing it had roughly 300 hp and 275 ft pounds of torque...
  4. Engine Help and Future Planning Help

    S10 / S15
    So I've got my 95' S10 still running good. About to replace the front discs and rear shoes. I previously stated I would do a rebuild, but I've decided against it. I want to go for a crate motor. From what I've seen, it's cheaper and has what I want to do with my truck. My major issue is that I...
  5. Engine swap 2.8 to 4.3

    S10 / S15
    Hey guys, I have a 1986 4x4 automatic s10 with the 2.8 v6. Honestly its the truck I want, but it doesnt have the guts i want. I want to upgrade to a 4.3 out of a 91 I found, but I want to make sure everything will bolt directly. Will I need a different tranny? Bell housing? Anything? I know it...

    So after 350K+ miles on my 93 S-10 the old 4.3 bent a valve and is running like crap. I have a 99 blazer that was rolled a few years back that I planned on pulling the 4.3 out to slap into the pickup. I already have a new Edelbrock 2114 intake manifold and a TBI adapter plate. Also I am building...
  7. 1991 s10 super hard start and black soot

    S10 / S15
    Okay so I did an engine swap in a 1991 s10 blazer LT Tahoe edition. The guy I bought it from said it struggled to run. Before the swap it had the same condition, hard start and black soot from exhaust. I replaced the egr valve and tps and it ran better so I decided to proceed with the swap...
  8. Ecotec3 4.3?

    262ci Forum (4.3)
    Howdy, since I just realized a few seconds ago that gm has the ecotec 4.3 with 283HP and I'm looking for a v6 swap into my truck what are the differences between the 4.3 vortec (my whip is a 96 s10 btw) compared to the ecotec 4.3? It sounds like a very good swap instead of a v8 to me (hp is...
  9. 1984 2.8L to 1993 2.8l swap questions

    60v6 Forum (2.8/3.4)
    Hi all, first post. I have a 1984 S10 Durango that I picked up for a song. Carbureted 2.8l 5spd. I love it. However, I don't trust the engine and trans. I found a 1993 S10 with lower km that I also got on the cheap. The body and box are rotted out, but I believe the driveline is solid. I...
  10. Engine swap that isnt a v8?

    Articles - Engine, Other
    Weird idea but I want to be different with my ride, I want to swap in a different v6 but I don't really have any ideas what I can do, I was thinking maybe a 3.6 from a camaro (300HP v6 sounds perfect for an s10) Anybody have any suggestions? Don't want to build a 4.3 because it's a money pit of...
  11. 1997 S10 V8 350 Engine Swap

    V8 Discussion
    Hi all, I'm wanting to swap a 350 SBC into my 1997 base model, 2wd, 2.2L, S10. I'm on somewhat kind of a budget. What would be the best transmission to use that requires the least amount of drilling and cutting that lines up the closest with the 4 speed manual transmission, and which coil...
