Does anyone know the bore/stroke on the Northstars?What about cam specs?I want to try and pick the front wheel drive version motor from a salvage yard and have one built to stick in a 1st gen S10 truck.What did they change to the new motor?:cheers

Why a front wheel drive version? The S-10 is rear wheel drive.

Why not just drop a small block chevy V8 in the S-10? I have done it in two S-10's.

I think I found a guy who mite part with a northstar motor.I don't plan to run the S10 front wheel drive.And I want something different than the regular 350 S10.How cool will it be to assault the blue camp boys.Then when theycomplain about it being 5.7L to there 4.6,I can laugh and say not exactly.
