And risk putting up with drunk techs who forget I have a five speed? No thanks, I'm good.

Oh and I got the y pipe too from the Yukon, it a dual pipe, shaped like the y pipes configuration.

My question is this. If I have a 96 s10 and find a 5.7 ecu and wiring harness from a 96, why can't I just use the v8 pod section to the v8 ecu and the rest be the v6 wiring?harness.

Of course you can. I believe the only thing different you need is 4wd headers and an oil pan. Do a search on here and you'll find your answer.

I will start with cutting the core support. I will be pretty straight forward. I cut the top, some people cut the bottom. I will let the pics do the talking.



Hey how did you get radiator lower since it was moved back? My hood hits the radiator. Did you cut sides of the floor so the radiator would drop? I noticed you kept the stock reservoir hose too, nice!

Oh ic, you take the strip of rubber off from under the hood that's near the radiator cap, cut a little metal/ hammer gently and remove some pieces if that heat felt crap... I'm done. Total time, 6 full days to do this swap. Too much fabrication. Hope its worth it.

Not like it was a hard swap, like dropping a 2j in an old poopra. Not even worth taking pics. Describing the install should be proof enough. But I'll post in the morning with the 2 nv3500s and an extra Bell housing that took forever to pull out of the transmission at the j yards today. That's proof its me when I post. Silver extra cab 2wd.
