And how it sits now (with a new tonneau cover).





Currently trying to get a new daily so i can do a lot more fixing on this truck so It can be track ready in the spring.. Still haven't got it to the track and I live 5 minutes away from Englishtown Raceway park.

Plan on painting it a very bright red.

This is pretty much my only update here. Installed an x-pipe and made an intake air box from an aluminum battery box. Plan on datalogging and tuning really soon, just trying to build some courage.

Edit: Still haven't spent much time cleaning up the engine bay. I care more of how it runs then how the engine bay looks.

Awesome! glad to see another v8 S10 from jersey! Hopefully see you at Etown one of these days

I still have to do a few things before Etown let's me race (battery shutoff switch and box, new windshield and some other misc. things). PM me the next time you go to Etown though, I'm two minutes from there.

I've heard mixed statements from everyone that it won't pass tech if I don't have the battery shut off switch and have a cracked windshield.

Strange... Maybe because the battery isn't in the stock location? but Ive never heard of them giving too much of a hassle. But I guess you are right. Better be prepared then sorry HAHA :D

The only thing that has been done to the truck as of lately is a new radiator. I decided to go with a corvette radiator instead.

All other work has been put on hold due to my parents house being struck by lightning on June(Friday the 13th). House caught on fire but mostly just water damage. Waiting for some insurance money to replace some of my damaged parts that were in the basement.

Any pictures of your transmission cross member? Is it a modified stock or aftermarket? If you modified yours, any pointers for someone who is going to do a similar transmission swap?

Mine is very ugly and I refuse to take a picture of it lol. It's actually a custom one made from some hollow square tubing.
