Will a S-10 5 speed truck manual transmission hook up to a 350 short block Chevy engine? What all would I need to do this? I have a 67 Chevy 2 Nova.

They're all five speeds. I'd think we need some more info. What year is the truck? Nv1500, nv3500, t5 Borg Warner were all options I believe. Most s10s had 4l60 autos in them... And that mates to a 350 with a different style converter. So, a manual should work - as long as you know which manual you've got.

Thank you for the information. Just trying to figure out which truck model would work best. Haven't purchased anything yet but have someone that has a few to choose from. I just wasn't sure if a S-10 would work at all.

Just keep in mind that it is not as strong as a Muncie 4 speed, but if you have a basically stock 350 and drive it like a normal person, it should work just fine.

Hi there . . … . . . Look over at this post (also here in the "Drivetrain & Performance" section . . . . down a few post) .


to answer u'r question - - - - - - - - - - - -- - - - - - - - - Yes . . . it will fit - - - but kinda depends on what type ( S-10 , S-15 - T 5 . . . . yes ) ( Camaro or Firebird - T 5 . . . .
yes ; depends on what years , some easy . . . some harder ) ( Mustang T 5 . . . . . yes & no - - - some harder than others ) .

GO READ " lugnutz65" . . . T 5 Info Page ; very good info . Also, check out "BritishV8.org" page for Borg / Warner T 5 "metal - Tag" numbers , years , and gear ratios w/ O D ratios.


AND, WELCOME to SNS . . . . glad too have you here . . . . :cool: . . . . jim

roycromer . . . . . you may read this Post by taz3 . . . . using a T 5 with / behind his 396 BB 69 Nova (factory 4 speed car) . . . . . . but, Paul DID 'Mod his T 5 with "after-market-gears" . Still very Great Fit with "NO Floor Cutting" (except for u'r shifter hole) . in 'taz3's Nova' - - he already had a floor hole ; he just had to mod - it alittle .

I'd say the 1st 'deciding thing' is your "car seat" & which seat you intend on using . . . . . . for my install , I used my stock Bench seat . . . . . (S -15 type T 5 , with stock shifter ,
and using all stock inside gears ; clears my bench seat & dash Very Good - - - but, my Nova is only a 250 - six engine . i Hope this info may help out . . . . . . jim
