    2.5L and 4 speed came in 82-85 firebirds i know, but in s-10 hum dunno, look under truck at tranny see if is aluminum or iron case, aluminum is t5 and iron would be four speed, but i doubt it, but never know, mayb someone got bored and wanted four speed in it and had one laying around ?

    i tell you what though, manual trans with these trucks as light as they are makes for some fun rippin and roarin /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    big difference form 60s manual to the little 5 speeds in the s-series trucks

    the s-series trucks trannies are top loaded and lighter and very light duty

    the old 60s 4 speed were heavy and l;inkage type side loaded and stronger

    whole new world really

    then you have the big heavy iron truck top loaders with internal shift, whole new world again,a nd are my favorite manual trannies, the 420 and 435 and 465, etc.

    also on a side note there are alot of 4.3L 5 speed '85-up trucks too, although i dont know what year 5 speed began in full size trucks, about 88 is when it should have started, with the 4500 tranny
