Nono, different truck. Buy a s10 for $200, a 6.2 for $1000, a t56 for another grand, and a rear end for another grand and go running!

Nice, I'm not sure they can be beat for the dollars, at least in a straight line. I'll finish mine one day, when the miata is less fun.

The lsx swap section on the s10 forum is closest to this forum I've ever found, if you haven't found it already.

I love V8 powered small trucks.
My only vehicle for about 5 years was a built 302 swapped ranger.
It still lives, but I finally sploded the 15-year-old-me built c4 after a decade of abuse.

You got that gangsta lean on your momo as well. I took mine to the allignment shop and the said my rack threads would be uneven on each side to straighten it out. I have tried re putting the wheel on but it either leans left or right but never center. What hub do you have?

Did not crash. Mission accomplised.
<br />
<br />Drive train performed flawlessly. Brakes were absolute ****. I need a fix asap.
<br />
<br />Fastest time was a 1:34.9 but consistently I was running 1:35-36. Lack of stopping power was scary. I couldn't lock the tires if I tried.

<br />Maybe. I bled them at lunch time and no difference.

<br />They feel fine on the street but one trip from 120-40 and they weren't happy.

Now they feel like **** on the street. Maybe I'll bleed them some more. In over news I ******* love star specs. Gave me a ton of grip, but were very controllable at the limit.

Pedal feels like mush until the end of the travel then stiffens up.

Will bleed and test again. Need to do more ducting, surface manifold and figure out brakes. Might get some cobalt pads.

Otherwise I'm really happy how the car drove. I was really able to test the limits and when I found it the car just kinda let me know without tossing me. If I get ambitious maybe I'll pull the new 6 speed and think about putting it in.

Just go ahead and do man brakes.

How'd the gearing feel with the 3.9 torsen and the 5-speed? That should be a pretty sweet combo.
