Yea I think IMA scrap the v8 swap. Too heavy and really don't want to cut the firewall. So IMA go with the ka swap.

With my truck I eventually want to do a v6 swap. Have you considered going that route and find a wrecked S10 for a 4.3 swap?

Most v-6s look like a nice fit to me.  I didn't like the 4.3 for the weght (it's an iron block) and its dismal horsepower rating. (something like 190HP)  The one I really like is the VQ35, light and plenty of power, but there are some expensive hurdles to overcome. The theft deterent system has to be overided or you run an after market ECU.  It's a front sump engine, but somebody makes a rear sump for it, but again not cheap. 

 

I'm not sure if AC is on your "gotta have" list, but look at how the compressor or any of the accesories you need are mounted on the engine.

Your truck is fuckin sweet, whatever swap you do, just make sure you finish it so this truck doesn't goto waste, it looks too perfect.
Goodluck with whichever route you take!

Cool.

 

If you upload the image before you rotate it, it will not show correctly. Also, if you rotate an image in the hosting site editor, you need to replace the original image, and sometimes even refresh the page before it takes. At least that's what I have found with Photobucket.

I think the direct upload site rotated the picture on its own.
