dude, you gotta throw a little turbo on that.... like a T3/t4 hybrid!!! Mess with the pump and put a little 5" stack on it when you put it in the s10!!! that would be sweeeeeeeet!

we got two garrets, idea what size, dads friend got a kit to turbo a jeep and the shaft was bent and ended up getting 3 in the end and we have the two with bent shafts, they were for the i6 4.0 jeep and i think they will work on it

Most 4cyl's only run 7-8psi so you should keep it under 10psi so it will hold together, also ditch the fram!!!

check this link for more ideas...especially if you want a full size chev to get over 30mpg

well we tore into the engine lastnight, it was perfect, almost. with 200xxx the bearings were great, but we are going to rebuild the head and the cam had some nicks in it so a new cam. everything was in overall good shape except the cam
