    Wow, your ride is quite a bit different... Did you check my web? The whole build is there for all to see. When you get into a specific problem, let me know and I'll see if I can help.

    I still have the sticker file, and can make them for $15.00 each plus postage...

    sounds as if this has become alllll tooo popular all of a sudden.

    if this is your first time.... its gonna be fun. just wait till the heater box to exhaust comes to play.

    but I agree.... might as well go with the 86/87 intercooled motor to be worth th trouble.

    and I imagine you need to know what parts to keep the stick you need too right?

    which 5 speed are you running now? the stock GM T5?

    I may be wrong but I don't think they used T-5's in S-10's after 1993: I'm almost positive the T-5 was reserved for 2.5 and 2.8 liter engines, both which were not used after 1993. Most likely if it's the stock tranny it's a NV3500, but neither it nor the T-5 would probably live long behind a turbo 6 Buick.
