this is where I sit with my s-10 and the engine swap...





I have all the wiring gutted and all the exhaust cut out...I am trying to find a tranny so I can stab it in all at once...I have all the brackets and pullies except for the power steering...it is not going to take much more to finish it up...then I can start on some body work...Yippie....:thumbup:

this is what the truck looked like before I started...



and this is what I want when I get done! Man I like Photoshop!!

pull that rad support out! and unhook your bodymounts and raise it about 4" on blocks from the frame. trust me it will help you alot when puttin in the drivetrain!

i'd say a little more than a wee bit. it can be done... but its worth the little xtra effort to do that. and if you want a lot more room yank the fenders off too. also take out your distributer before droppin it in i almost snaped mine off when i was droppin it in.

I understand it is kind of an odd request but I do have experience in installing 8's in s-10's so I do enjoy them as well, the reason I observe this site. After seeing what you have done I think you are the person for it. I have always wondered what my truck might look like with a blower through the hood, tubbed, with a mild drop. If you can help that would be appreciated if not I appreciate you considering it, thanks

I got my engine and tranny in...I was suprised to see that the stock cross member worked with no mods to it at all...Now I can finish up all of my brackets and radiator...stab the distributor and I should be ready to fire this biotch up...:D

I'll take some pics later this week and post them...I am ready to drive it....
