    Simple dimension question

    I did a search but yeilded no good results. Can someone get me a accurate lenght/width of a sbc350 from water pump to distributor and from header to header? I am looking at doing a v8 swap in a non s10 project I have and i'm not sure if I have the room. I have 29" radiator to firewall clearance and I think 28" wheel well to steering shaft clearance to work with. I'm on my way over to v8s10 to try and dig up something there.

    Thanks, Chad

    Dude your fast. I've been looking for half and hour all over the internet. I guess that's where the "super" in your moderator status comes from:bigthumb:

    I'm gonna venture to say it won't fit lenght wise and retain my a/c which is not debateable. I guess it's gonna be a 4.3 for me.

    Thanks, Chad

    No. Plenty of people run V8's in S-10's with A/C. I don't know any right off hand, but had seen it done many times. Try going through the gallery and checking out engine pics. Bound to be one somewheres.

    Thats funny, a 4.3 is 1.42" wider than a 350 on the passenger side. Strange.
