honda engine/ trans to s10?

Postby razordave » Tue Jul 09, 2013 2:05 pm

anyone know a plausible option on swapping a reliable four banger into my s10? It left the factory with a 2.2 5 speed rwd let me know on some rwd 5 or six speed to put in front of ? k20 would be wicked.

Never seen it in a S10, but did find it done with a Mazda b2200.

Nothing will drop in and EVERYTHING would be a complete fabrication job, from mounts to complete wiring.
One motor comes to mind for working with a conventional, strictly RWD setup, a S2000 motor.
Anything else will be set up for the motor to be transversely mounted and possibly could be set up for AWD.

Honestly, with enough time and money, sure it could be done, overall is it worth it?
Do you have the time, money and skills to complete it, start to finish?

I've already put a cavalier engine in it, I'm done with that route. I'm looking at a used plasma cutter and have a drill press and a arc welder, I should be able to pull it off. I'm looking to keep a cheap budget build here... b series? I'd like to get some fuel economy but my truck is extended cab so that might not be do-able without leaving a film of slug goop lol

K20 with a supercharger mated to an S2000 trans with a conversion plate. Are you up for it? 8)

It's a great idea, but you will need to fabricate almost everything from scratch.

I'm guessing nothing ever became of this?
