I got a 1985 s10 short box. Putting in a turbo 400 tranny. How do i get this to work? I heard people on here talking about them been easier then a th350? How so will it be just about the right length for the driveshaft or what?

In my experience, I've noticed the th350 to be easier. That is the one with the 9" tailshaft. On the particular truck we put it in, we were able to reuse the stock driveshaft.
