Cummins 4BT in S10

Now this is just an idea for replacement of the 4.3 in my 93 S10. Trying to get some feedback.

Cummins 4BT from say a Frito Lay Truck w/ TH400 adapter

Now I was going to use the factory T5 but im pretty sure ill destroy it w/ torque

also GM Bolt 12 w/ 2:83 gearing from mid 80s F-Body

just going to be a light load, or cruising truck.

im new to diesel, just been wanting to get into biodiesel and better mpg.

Im pretty much against the whole bio diesel thing... mostly the veggy oil, just from things ive herd of people doing it. But a 4bt in a s10 would be killer fuel milage anyways. Id say it wouldnt be any problem getting 40mpg with such a light truck. But im not 100% sure.

That's a heavy engine to put in a compact truck. But that is just my opinion. It'd be far easier to find a compact diesel truck from the 80's. I know Datsun/Nissan, Mazda, and Isuzu made them.

Edit: Another option would be to find a wrecked CRD Jeep Liberty with the diesel engine. It would be the right size for sure.

There was a Ford Ranger I seen in one of the diesel power mags, had a 4bt put it in. They had it making 500hp or something crazy like that. It was yellow and from Ohio thats all i can remember. But it was def nice! Is the s10 4x4? One thing to keep in mine you'll most likly have to beef up the front suspension a bit.. but i dont think the engine is TOO heavy.

I also came across a site specifically for 4bt swaps.

well i wanted to still be able to pull short distances. and the s10 is a 2wd ext cab long bed. the 4bt isnt THAT much more that a cast iron 350, so i was going to get v8 swap springs to help handle the extra weight.

btw a 6bt is a bit more my head in a few ways lol

and Believer45 i found that site minutes after i signed up here. kool to see u are from ohio as well
