Default 2.2l s10?

What automatic transmission is used in second gen S10's with the 2.2 liter? Will this motor bolt up to a 700r4/4l60e...if not do they make an adapter?

What I am looking at doing is getting a 2nd gen 4x4 with a bad motor and dropping in a 2.2 and either supercharge or turbocharge it.

End goal is to have a DD S10 4x4 with at least the same power as a Vortec 4.3 and get at least 25mpg.

The make turbo kits for relatively cheap for the 2.2 s10. I can get a 2001 Blazer in incredible shape right now for $800 with a bad motor and I think I could pull this whole project off for less than $3000.

4l60e with the 60* bellhousing. if you want to run a 700r4 find one from a first gen that had either 4 cyl or 2.8 in front of it. same trans pattern.

Good luck getting 25 mpg on this. My 2.2 97 2wd gets at best 25 and that was once. Usually it's in the 22 mpg range.

This is what you need. That takes care of the bolt in, the wiring is next.

when I first saw the thread I thought you were asking about the old 2.2 diesel they used in `82-83. it was a Izuzu carry over from the Luv trucks. they were nice engines

That would be an option if they had more power.

As far as mpg goes my friend has a 99 2wd 2.2 and gets 28mpg all day long.

Something about the 99's get better gas mileage, they are rated at 29 on the hyw vs 25mpg for other years...I dont know why? But I can get a donor motor, harness and computer for $500 with something like 45k on it.

I am thinking supercharger would be a better option on a package like this though because a turbo would have to spool up and lack bottom end torque in a 4000lb vehicle...unfortunately they do make supercharger kits but they are like $5000 compared to the turbo kit I can buy used for $600.

Wonder how much work it would be to drop in a LS1 with a 6 speed manual in a 2nd gen 4x4 s10...anyone ever seen it done? That might get pretty decent mileage and also have a ton of power when needed.

PS: I bought the blazer I was looking at today, got it for $700, it is a 2001 and body and interior are in mint condition, 4.3 liter has a bad rod knock though. I know you can bolt up a LSX series motor to a 4l60e so I might start trolling the yards looking for a good 5.3 or 6.0...I would like to keep AC if possible though, will have to visit the S10 forum and see whats all involved.

Last option is to just replace 4.3 and sell it for a profit.

if your shooting for mileage then go with the older 4.3 V8 TBI of tune port out of the later caprice classics. they made a ton of power as compared to the 4.3 V6. plus they got around 25 mpg.

you should be able to find complete GenIII 4.8's and 5.3's around the $750 mark pretty easy, maybe a bit more with harness. But you'll easily double that price when looking for 6.0's, everybody wants the ironblock LQ4 and LQ9's. I found a LQ9 longblock for $800 out of a totalled Escalade and jumped on it and I'm currently building it to swap out my 5.3 (and yeah, I've already got plans to use that motor in another project)
Should end up cheaper than a turbo 2.2, and easily double the torque at a more usable rpm range too.

attaining 25mpg avg. will be another story though.

Got the transmission out right now and my friend is going through it, installing upgraded sunshell, new clutch packs, vette servo, ect.

I am just going to put a warmed up 4.3 back in it so I can get it up and running asap because I need a daily driver. Going to LKQ tomorrow and see if I can find something without a gazillion miles on it, if not then I will get a reman.

As far as a 2.2 being gutless that is why I was thinking turbo, the one in the vid puts out 210 to the wheels, thats more than a stock 4.3 but it is also too much work and money for little gain.

I think it was (Haggar) that got the aluminum 5.3...that is something I will keep my eye out for and eventually swap into this.
