this is a short video of my truck. its a 95 s10 with a 94 lt1 B-body from a buick roadmaster. custom cowl hood, true duals, no cats, thrush turbo mufflers. B&M Megashifter. Custom grilleguard made by me. HID headlights and foglights. I know the video is a little crappy but I wanted to get something out there to see what people thought of my truck. If you have any requests as to something you would like to see about my truck or if you have any questions about the swap you can comment. any questions about the s10v8 swap can be addresed to my email. email@example.com
thanks for watching
Blew a head gasket so I decided to rebuild it. Hope you enjoy it...
Finally running RIGHT!!!
idling a little high because it wasn't up to temp, but it's running right once it fires up.
I get lots of questions either in messages or posted comments asking for help on motor swaps; please visit www.s-seriesforum.com. There are quite a few of us on there that do our own work, and LOTS of archived info from the past. Another good site is v8s10.org, thought I'm not on that site as regularly.
1996 S-10 406 small block
This is my truck with a 406 cu in. small block chevyf. The truck started as a write-off but lots of time and money made it like it is.
*UPDATE* Sold the old girl in August of 2008 due to moving to Toronto to work and live.
V8 S10 First Start
My 1987 Chevrolet S10 finally running again after the V8 swap, will post motor specs later, needs some carb tuning and ignition timing work, but all in all a good start, no oil leaks, fires, etc.
