    Thumbs up Please take a look if your doing a V8 conversion on a S10/Blazer

    UPDATED 8/05/03
    Please post all web links here to aid other members that are doing a V8 conversion on there S10/Blazer. Also post the exact link to the s-series vehicle(not just the website that has it). I like to see more members get involved with other members to aid in there conversion. I hate seeing a s-series setting in a salvage yard or front yard going bad. So I challenge each and every member to help me and ZZ4Blazer make this thread full as much info as we and you can gather up from the internet. As I find more info, I will post it. As for the ebay auctions, if they have ended, check back in a couple of days and they will be back or you may check seller's others auctions and you will be able to find it there. Thank you and good luck.

    BlazinLow has a detailed link(Tech) that shows you how to do the V8 conversion. If that does not answer your questions, try doing a search. Most questions have already been asked and answered. After doing the search and you still have a question or would like more indepthed detail, by all means ask.

    As far as i Know you can if it had a 2.8 you have to have 2.8 motor mnts to mount the new mounts to them

    What really matters is if it was a 2.5 or a 2.8 it needs to be a 2.8 to keep the same mounts

    Does someone make a long tube header or is that custom made type stuff
    Computer games don't affect kids, I mean, if pac man affected us as kids, we'd all be running around in darkened rooms, munching pills and listening to repetitive music.

    Question for the 4x4/awd guys doing the v8 swap... Am I stuck on using the expensive ass sanderson headers on my 4x4 swap since my truck is a 4x4?? Those Hedman's for $110 are much more pretty in my pocketbook, but I want to get the things that I need so that it is done right.. Also, should I just go with the 4.3L v8 mounts, or should I buy the 2.8's put them on there and then throw the sbc mounts on over top of them... Thanks guys

    In 1095, Pope Urban II commanded the beginning of the most heinous period ever documented: The Crusades. While killing over 100,000 Turks in 1098, the Christians "did no other harm to the women found in [the enemy's] tents - save that they ran their lances through their bellies," according to Christian chronicler Fulcher of Chartres.
