Has anyone ever installed a 500/472 in an S10? I see 350 Chevy and even a few BBC conversions. However, I have a really nice rebuilt 500 Cadillac that I would like to put in a 90 S10.

Thanks for any information.

I seem to remember 20 years ago or so someone did it. Thought I saw it in a magazine. Of course at my age I could just be losing my mind.

Having done a 500 swap into a 77 Chevy C10... I can say this much - they are HUGE!!!
The banks are very wide, it interfered with the steering column. I had to offset the column 1" and there wasn't much clearance even then.
I am sure you would have to move the steering column in an S10, and the exhaust would hit the frame on both sides.
You could swim in the engine area of a C10.

Here's some stats...
Cad 500 - 30" long 28" tall 28" wide
Chev 350 - 26" long 20" tall 22" wide

Got a shoe horn?
