on the newer trucks is more fully boxed to improve torsional rigidity and bending
stiffness. However, the same V-8 mounts that work on the 19821993 trucks

The 1995 S-10 2WD, 2-door Blazer shown
above has a 1996 Camaro LT1 engine/4L60-E transmission. It was built by talented
employees at the General Motors Desert Proving Grounds, using various parts from
the General Motors parts bin.

to convert to a V-8, because of a new shift linkage and steering column that make
more room for the V-8.
