I swapped a 350 into a S-10 truck. I couldn't keep rear tires on that truck to save my life.

I will have to look around for some pictures that i have of it. I was never impressed with the S-10 to begin with, it was a single cab, small truck, and i am a big guy. It was also 2 wheel drive.

It was quick, if i could get traction. In the end i really don't think it was worth it, no one really wanted the truck when i went to sell it. I could of spent my time doing something better.

Well, Im lookig to go the semi-stock route. I have a 350 from a 92 Suburban available that is complete from injectors to oil pan. Id would really like to drop it into a S-series Blazer with 4x4. I know its basically just a drop in and I know the TBI 4.3 has the same harness as the 5.7 TBI, just needs a stronger fuel pump.

I know the Blazer is quick with the 350, I have yet to hear about the B2 with a 302.
Id just like to get some opinions.

you would need an oil pan i believe(not to sure on that) but conversion headers and motor mounts.

You would also need the ECM from the truck to run the 350 properly. I've known people to do the Blazer swap and it was an ass-haulin' machine. You could expect pretty much the same results from a Bronco II swap. The Bronco II swap may take a little more work, though. They were pretty stout with the 2.9, as they were. An easy swap would be a 4.0, but bang-for-the-buck, I would do the V-8.

Theres a guy here from Georgia with a TB'd 5.0 and an AOD, body lift 2wd. Apparently he can do such sick burnouts that he got a guy in an 88 Gt t-5 with 3 grand in bolt ons (done by someone so not much lol) a little nervous, but he blew him away.

I have an 87 Bronco 2 with a 302 in it. The entire drivetrain came out of a 83 FSB. I have very little in my pockets so I fabbed damn near everything. I am also building a 93 Explorer with a 302 and the rest of the drivetrain out of a 77 F-150. It's my brothers truck but he bought the conversion motor mounts. Advanced Adapters makes the mounts. I believe they also make the headers for it too. You can get the parts from Summit Racing or Northern Auto Parts.

My brother and I test fit the engine with the conversion mounts and it fit perfect.
