    THey will not work. They will hit the motor mounts.

    As far as the guage cluster, you asking about just the cluster, or the whole dash? Either way, its a bunch of mods to get either in.

    You could probably do your own easier with aftermarket gauges. Thats my plan.

    For factory manifolds in 2WD S10, I'm currently using early 90's BUICK station wagon V8 manifolds. Get all the Bolts and I even maintained the factory heat shields. These run the exhaust passage plenum higher than some other factory manifolds allowing you to set the motor lower. plug the EGRs with 1/4" pipe or if you can find 70's V-8 Monza manifolds some off these these were non-EGR "smooth" castings. I can send pictures if you want.

    I've also used Hooker 1 3/4" super comps with a tube that goes outside the frame (didn't like them as the slip joint leaked and the additional leverage of the tubing kept gaskets wearing out. I've also used the Sanderson s-10 headers (ok but I was running a 5-speed and had to clearance #5 header tube alot to clear the clutch master cylinder Also had to beat the passenger floor board up alot to clear.

    #1.. Ram Horns.. NO.. but 83 up Camaro manifolds will also work. Look for them off a 350 TPI. They are a bigger outlet than the 305 version.

    #2 If it's a digital dash, you gotta be at the expert level in the wiring depatment.
