Here is my plan. I have a 1988 Chev S-10 4x4 with a gutless 2.8 with approx
215,000 miles on it.
I also have a wrecked 1990 S-10 4x2 with a good 4.3.. the 88 is in great
shape... some rust in the usual places, but appearance is not an issue right
now. My plan is to find a tranny and transfer case that will bolt up to the
4.3 and swap the 2.8 out
What I have.
ECM for 4.3
Truck for the 4.3 to go into
What I need
Trans and transfer. (are there any years I need to stay away from? I
know they started putting Computers on trannys at some point )
Advice advice advice.
What I want
this is going to be a general 4x4/daily driver/play truck with some towing
any advice as to a good cam..
any mods to tranny to make it better
bolt on mods?
Money is kind of an issue and this is going to be an on-going project but
I sure my side job will finance it well enough to do what is wanted and
Ive been thru the forums on www.s-series.org but with my schedule, its hard
to devote much time to sifting thru countless postings to find tidbits of
info here and there, so any insight you guys can give me in this thread
would be greatly appreciated.
Anyone ever went from an auto trans to a manual in an 4x4 S-10?? if so what
kind of headaches are involved?
