Noob from SoCal

Postby AINTDOWN » Sat Aug 12, 2017 12:45 pm

hey everyone. stumbled across this site lookin for some info on my swapped s10.

Anyways my name is Mike. I currently have 2 s10's. one ive had for years which my pops uses and one i just got off a buddy. the one my pops uses is a stock 97 extended cab. the one i just got is a 95 extended cab with a BAR'd lt1/t56 in it. the lt1 is fun but I'm building a 5.3l on the side for it at the moment. the truck has been sitting for 10+ years. did a basic tune up on it. replaced the waterpump and its been running pretty good so far. oh also have a 11 cts-v coupe.

so I'm sure ill be on here a bit asking questions and stuff. ive done plenty of LS style swaps into random vehicles so I'm familiar with the swap and wiring. not too familiar with the S10's wiring especially since it already has the lt1 in it.

how my buddy had it:

Welcome! Your LS knowledge will be very useful to other members here. Pics of your other swaps would be great too!
