Question about 2000 Chevrolet S-10

1 Answer

I have a 2000 s10 with a 4.3L and 4x4. I've always wanted to do an engine swap and put a 350 in it, but still keep 4x4 if possible. Is this possible, and if so, what kind of special things would I have to do to go about this?

Anything is possible, but apart from straightening out ECM conversion from 6cyl. to 8 your biggest problem will be oil pan. You should check with after market companies to see how they sove the problem. It may just be a matter of reshaping an existing pan or maybe going to a dry sump ($$$). Hope this helps.

you will need to have the oil pan on, its pretty tight when you put in a 350 ,also a 3" body lift will make things alot smoother godbless

I have a 88 chevy 4x4 with sb 350 tbi. i want to swap 350 block with a 400 block ( keep the 350 heads and tbi system just swap the block). i know i must bore the steam holes but thats all i know i must do....

a full decking of heads, as well as refurbishing at a head shop is most likely necessary, new head bolts, head gaskets, as well as checking the valve/piston clearance.make sure the coolant holes are properly cleaned out, and this could be a good time to port and polish the heads

I want to swap my 4.3 for a 350 and keep same tranny should there be any problem and what year 350 would be best and cheapest

You shouldn't have any trouble bolting up to your existing transmission. I would try to get an engine from as close to your 1993 as possible because you will have to bring the computer with it and that would cut down on a lot of potential wiring splicing.
I would also give serious thought to using a 305 instead of a 350. You will only lose about 20 HP but it will be noticably better on gas mileage, especially if you are going to use it as a daily driver. Hope this helps.

Engine swap 5.0 vortec to 350 non computer controled

The computer runs the Transmission from the signals the throttle position sensor, crank shaft sensor, and cam shaft sensor. Your going to have to replace the transmission with an older transmission like the turbo 350 or turbo 400. When it's time to get the car e-tested, that's when your going to run in to problems, due to the year your Chevy is. If your Chevy was a 1985 then you could go with the carb system but with being the newer OBD11 system, your going to have an off road only vehicle with that swap. Why would you want to replace the engine with the 350 carb set up??? There are things you can do to tweak the one in your Chevy free of charge.

I have a Irco 350 TPI engine that I want to swap into a

you can run this motor carburated if you want by purchasing an after market conversion intake and carburator setup. if you want to leave it fuel injected you will need to swap wiring harnes and everything, computers and sensors you will have to run manual guages for the temp sensors and oil pressure guage and alternator due to your speedo being unable to accept them.

86 chevy tranni swap

yes a plate can be built however the shop rate to build it versus the kit can be debated all day. thje question is always how much it costs and how long you want to wait. neither side is wrong. i have done both. my question is why do you want to use the 350 it doesn't have the over drive like the 700r4 does, plus you lose torque as well. most times yopu can get a rebuilt 700r4 for around 400 bucks and have less headaches

I swapped mine out and put in a 350 with a turbo 350. The rear end is not posi but if that's not a problem the drive shaft will work but you'll have to get a new trans mount. you can get one from Summit or jegs. Also the motor mounts will have to be moverd to the furthest front position. Best to put the mounts in then try the engine for fit before you bolt in the trans. You'll also have to rerun the fuel line to the other side. There are some other minor mods but you do them as you go along.
