    Big Block Chevy S-10 Blazer

    Ok, everyone, I posted this question in the V8 Conversion Forum and haven't gotten a reply yet.

    I'm looking for anyone who knows somebody who has done a Big Block chevy Conversion into a 1st Generation S-Truck. I am in the beginning of my conversion and would like some technical guidance as far as what problems to expect and things I need to do to make it as painless as possible.

    Im installing a 502 Mark VI in my 1988 S-10 Blazer. If anyone knows anyone personally who has done this, please have them contact me at 4wheeler@Bigfoot.com or post it here.

    Thank You.

    Dude, your doing a full custom blazer. And your using a fullsize frame to do so. I doubt anybody can help you out with that. Why did you decide to use a fullsize frame?? Seems too much work to me. What are you having problems with. Looks like your just dumping a s-10 blazer body on a K5 frame

    I understand nobody has done what I'm doing before, but I know that there are people who have done a big block conversion into an s-series truck and I would like to find out what kind of problems they had.

    Only problem I'd see is getting the blazer body on the frame. You shouldn't have any problems with the motor, cause that frame had the option of a big block from factory. You just might need to do some mods to the firewall.

    Yeah, as you can see, I already got the body mounted to the frame. I also already cut a huge hole in my firewall. Once the engine is fitted, I have to box in the firewall opening. Kinda like a van, but not as big.


    Yeah, just as an update, I removed the body again today. I'm getting reday to sandblast the frame, running gear and suspension, and then paint it. I placed the body on the ground. I'll have to send a pic, It really looks like a extremely body dropped blazer now.
