Ok guys I have a question me and my cousin are debating about.
We have came up with the list below for customizing my 97 S-10 4.3 V-6 Vortec. For the engine. Should we do the mods or should we just drop in a 383 stroker or LT1/LT4? Also any ideas for performance? or styling? Or should I just do what I have planned. Thankx for any input and info. email is [email protected]

u can get a low mileage ls1 with ecu, harness and all the goodies like waterpump and alt. for around 2000-2500 u might want to get a 6speed ifyou have a 5speed cuz the 5speed in a s10 wont hardly hold up to a 4.3 let alone the ass of a ls1 that should be a extra 500
