I have a '99 S-10 Xtreme ex-cab and I am getting this good feeling that a straight V8 swap shouldnt be that hard.

The V-8 is out of a '96 C1500 Silverado and it hasnt been touched in a while. I plan on cleaning it up and swapping out my 4.3l and dropping this in. Does anyone know about this or have any experience with this. Or does anyone have an "easy to do manual" 'that I can possibly follow? Can I use the same computer as my 4.3?

Ive heard the story "well its just a V8 with 2 cyls cut off....I know this, but would it be easy to just do a basic engine swap?? Thanks for all the support,,and if anyone has any pics of V8 s10s (2nd gen), post them!!

You will need to add a couple of wires for the injectors to the computer. And you will have to have your computer tuned for the v8.
