I drive an '98 Chevy S-10 and a friend of mine told me I could supercharge it. I wasnt sure if he was telling the truth of not so decided to ask you guys.
Maybe if its a V6 then yes
Darn I dont have the V6. Could i do an engine swap and if so how much would that cost (time and money)?
I would expect at least 600 but thats the lowest price, highest maybe 1500 depending on if the engine is new and labor cost
Wow thats pretty cheap. I was expecting a few thousand for just the engine. Thx dude :thumbs:
What size engine would be best?
A small block chevy *cough 350 cough* :laughing:
Don't spread lies 99integra. You can supercharge an inline 4 just fine. Or you could get a turbo.
Yeah but turbocharging a truck just doesnt seem right to me.
Why? I could understand if it was a torque heavy engine, but its got an engine in it that should only belong an a car. Theres nothing wrong with turboing, and you wont be robbed of power.
This is why I joined these forums to learn more. Thx dude :thumbs:
How much would the turbo be?
I didn't say he couldn't, i just said with a V6 he could, I guess it did sound like I said he couldn't but Dan the hondaman has a supercharger on his car, so yes it is possible
But is it worth it?
I would rather swap a 350 in it but thats just my :2cents:
I've never heard anyone say getting a turbo wasn't worth it. I'd go for it.
Depends on what kind you get, and where you get them from. You can find some on ebay for pretty cheap. You might have to get custom pipes made, which alot of shops can mandrel bend for you. I don't know if there are any kits for the I4 S-10 or not, buy you can try looking for those on summitracing.
Your about only bet is to do a DIY turbo setup (which isnt THAT easy),
because I dont tihnk anyone makes turbo kits for the 2.2 S-10. Honestly if
you're not up to doing a DIY turbo kit, I'd do a motor swap. You can find
oodles amount of Vortec 4.3's in the junkyard and find them VERY cheap
indeed. That would be a good nice 190hp starting point. Best part is it's a
drop in motor.
If you want to get a little wild with it you can get a SBC V8, what THESE guys...
Recommend is the Vortec 350 V8 from the 96-00 1500 pickups.
In the 1980's you could buy a turbocharged Toyota pickup right off the showroom floor (rare factory option).
Hey thx :thumbs:
Hell you could even buy his basic truck with a factory turbo (GMC Syclone). Also, not a truck, but the same thing as the Syclone just in SUV from, the Typhoon.
Wow, not sure why I didn't think of that (probably because he didn't say it was 4WD, which could then be converted to AWD), I'm a huge fan of the Sy/Ty's. I seriously considered buying one of those (all white), when I purchased my GSX. I wanted to rack a bunch of miles on a vehicle, couldn't bring myself to do it to a Typhoon.
Its a FWD
There is no such thing as a FWD S-10. It's either RWD or 4WD.
Ok then it is a RWD lol
You can tell if its FWD or RWD by the way the engine is mounted. If its mounted horizontally (---), then its FWD. If its mounted vertically ( | ), then its RWD.
I did not know that :banghead:
If it is transversely mounted, it may also be AWD. Or longitudinally... :2cents:
If it is sideways or vertical, it could also be AWD.
Oh, really now. You just can't stop typing long enough to pull your head
out of your you know where.
Let's see if I have this right. Essentially all Subarus have horizontally opposed engines and most are AWD. Aircooled VW's all have horizonatally opposed engines and all are RWD. The vast majority of current Hondas, Toyotas, Nissans, etc have vertical inline engines and once again the vast majority are FWD. I could go on but Ray Charles could see where this is going. Somehow the facts don't back-up your words... AGAIN. What a surprise. :roll:
i'm pretty sure that he means to say transverse instead of horizontal and
longitudinal instead of vertical (can i get a vertical smile, please :hi: )
but that would make the olds toronado rwd---- i knew they were full of it
when they said the new toro was fwd! and those 79-85 eldo and riv bastards,
ps: i had no idea that my fieros were fwd, too!!! what made the back tires spin??? :tard:
The same thing that makes the front tires spin on VW Foxes and early
Passats (Dashers) and lots of older Audis... A longitudinally mounted
BTW, I really wanted Mr Twinkie to answer the question. He spews alot and then disappears.
