    if its 2.8, you need a different tranny, one from a 4.3 or a fullsize. then manifolds/headers, oil pan, radiator, among other things.

    there's a manual you can buy, i think from jagsthatrun.com that has all of the s-10 conversion info. i'm sure you can find it all throughout message boards and what not. try s-10 boards though.

    get the 4.3 tranny or at least a 4.3 tq converter, they have a higher stall speed. Also what kind of small block are you gonna put in there, Ive seen a few with 305's and 350's stock and they are QUICK, guess b/c of the low wieght. You are also gonna need special headers.
