I have a 88 S10 with a brodix headed 406. Custom Comp roller cam, Mass Flo EFI and a 175hp NOS Sniper kit. Power goes thru a built 700r4 with custom 10" 3000rpm stall into a Currie prepped 9" rear with 3.50 gear and Detroit Locker and Moser 31 spline axles. It is hung on a Chassis Engineering 4 link utilizing airbags and drag shocks. Inside is a Dakota Digital dash and Vintage AC. Wiring is by painless. Gear selection is handled by a re-gated vintage Hurst Slap-Stik. Exhaust is Advanced Adapters and Magnaflow.

427 in a 65 Malibu would be nice, I know one was built at the factory

Due to living in motor restricted Denmark, i am only swapping the broken 4.3 with another 4.3 to make my s10 4x4 haul the racecar this summer.. Maybe next winters project will be the 350 Tbi swap, when it is registered..

There just is not any challenge in that is there? Same builds since the beginning, bet you can do that in your sleep.

I think the hot tub I was in last night might have been a time machine. Is it 1986?
