    prolly pretty tough, dunno if its the same as a mazda, but mazda's u gotta tunnel the cab and everything. theres a guy on SSM "Adragnsuzu" or suttin to that effect, that has a 383 stroker, which i believe is a 350 block stroked and bored.

    383 isnt bored? its just a stroker kit, if it was bored over it'd be a little bit bigger than 383.

    if that's true(which i'm not arguing cuz i don't know), and if your bell housing bolts match up to a small block chevy engine, you will just have to buy a conversion kit for an s10. you will need the engine mounts that set the v8 forward and a set of headers to pipe exhaust out of the engine compartment...maybe a bigger radiator and an electric fan if it becomes too tight of a fit...and hopefully your accesories brackets will bolt up to the front of the new engine...then there's the water pump, bolts, hoses,...and can your rear axle handle the power?...crap! maybe you should consider a few minor upgrades to your stock engine.
