I would go on line and search for the "specs" for tat transmission first......I would think it wold not be able to handle the torque and/or horsepower......other option would see if a local hotrod trans shop could "beef" that trans up for you....not that familar with manual transmissions in late model trucks but if they are out there I would go with one that is made to be "mated" with a V8 engine......

Far as looks goes the T-5 trans looks the same from a 4 banger to aV8. I just located another one from a camaro that was mated to a 2.8 v6. Only prob with a camaro trany is the shifter is at the end of the tail shaft which means i would have to find a S-10 tailshaft to move the shifter forward.
Ive searched all over the web but just cant find what im lookin for as far as info goes

Ask Matchstick he did the conversion I believe you have to change tail shaft on transmission using a camaro tailshaft but ask him he can tell you.

To run a v8 in front of it, you'll need a world class T5, the non-world class trans wont hold up, and the 4 cylinder trans definitely wont. I dont know about the tail shafts, someone else might know more about that. a trans out of a 4.3 V6 truck would probably hold up fine to the I6. You will probably be better off finding one out of an earlier 80's truck that still used a cable clutch unless yours is hydraulic.

Well i know i can still use my bell housing with the linkage with a t5. Far as tail shaft, the one from a camaro has the shifter all the way to the rear as were the s10 is more center
