v8 s10 w/ 388
This is my 91 s10 with a 388 stroker. It has a built and stalled 700r in it
as well as very clean interior. The truck was painted days after this video
was shot, and while the truck has lots of power it was built to be a daily
driver. Thanks for the support guys!

1994 Chev S10 gas to diesel conversion
My converted S10 gas to diesel truck. It was a 4.3 vortec V6 gas engine
with an automatic transmission, I removed them both and installed the Isuzu
C223 4 cylinder diesel, with a Borg Warner T5 5 speed, which came with the
engine. Conversion was fairly straight-forward, not a lot of fabrication
required to make things work.
It's quite underpowered, it's slow accelerating, though once up to speed
it's not so bad. Fuel mileage is amazing for a truck. I haven't run the
tank to near empty, but have seen 600kms at 1/2 tank left, so I think I
should get 1000kms from the tank (just the stock tank - 13 imp gal I
believe). I haven't owned a vehicle yet where 1/2 tank was exactly half of
the distance you can travel on a tankful.
It's different. Most guys who modify their drive trains put in bigger
engines, typically V8's, however I went for something different, unique,
and cheap to drive. I can still haul all an S10 can (or more), and have
hauled my trailer with a ton of steel, for a total weight of almost 7100
lbs. I just didn't haul it quickly.
I hope you enjoy the vid.
For the first time, I tried to see how far I could get on a tank of fuel
(usually I fill it weekly). The fuel gauge was in the red, though I didn't
run out, it was at 1009kms when I filled it.
