How hard is it to LSX swap a 2wd, 2door Jimmy Sport? (Or the Jimmy/S10 platform in general)

I'm sure there are lots of write-ups on these sort of setups, @smokinghot

@LSx S10 and @Smokinhot

Like I said, just innocent curiosity, I'm such a ford guy that I've never looked into it.

And no, I didn't even bother googling it, because I'm sure someone has to have a link saved to a solid write-up instead of shuffling through the interwebz.

I had a buddy in Rockford do this to a S10 in his garage. He didn't have much trouble from what I remember.

Poked around LS1Tech, and see swap write-ups for everything except S-15 trucks.

I see LT1 kits on Jegs/Summit that will work for up to 2004 S15 trucks, but not an LS kit (IIRC, the mounts are the same, but the headers would be different).

S10V8.com Parts Store :: Kits for S10 V8 Conversion :: LS S10 Two Wheel Drive Kit

S10V8.com seems to be the big resource.

And just spit-balling, I wanted to 5.0 swap my explorer sport something fierce, but they don't respond well to being lowered, and only one company makes headers for them (at nearly $1000 a set)....

Seen lots of 350 swaps and LS swaps in S10/S15 pickups, not so often in the 2 door Jimmies/blazers, seems rather easy/straight forward.

No matter what I do next, I want it to be clean, something to take pride in, and something that can do 100% street duty, be practical, and still have fun with.... I just have to accept that I can't have a dedicated track car at this point in my life, which was my mistake with the Bimmer.

on hot rod tv or one of those shows they put an lsx in a 4wd 4 door s10 blazer once... retained 4wd too. it was actually a decent episode. because of it being 4wd it needed a bunch of work to the crossmember/oil pan to work out...

Even if I keep the Bimmer, I plan on tearing everything out, and moving it to a new shell so I can maintain motivation, etc... Like I said, I made a mistake by accepting such a beat up shell to begin with thinking I'd just use it as a track machine.... Street Cars >>>>> Track cars.

The S10 V8 Swap/Conversion Community poly mounts worked really well for me. If you use an H3 alpha oil pan with a 2wd, the engine will drop right in with no modification. I decided to save some money and just run the truck style oil pan. Had to notch the cross member, but that really wasn't too bad. I was able to use the stock transmission crossmember, just had to elongate the mount holes a bit. As far as a wiring harness, there are several companies that make them, but it's pretty easy to modify a truck or car harness yourself, just very time consuming.

Heres some links with a shitload of info:
