  • "Blumpkin" chevy s-10

    yup, my truck is called Blumpkin. And I'm swapping a Saturn IRL engine into it.
    Why? because I'm a fucking idiot, that's why.
    wanna see it? here it go.


    so here's the intention - 300hp/30mpg. that simple.
    I'll load up a metric shit-ton of pics for your enjoyment.



    UPDATE -it is called MU47, and I'm sticking to that name.

        I had to play with it. It's like I have this penis....I should leave it alone? fuck no.

        I got some wheels from Summit, and had to paint them right away. Got some meats for the back side too. 295/60/15.

            I started painting some interior trim panels with Duplicolor trim paint. Looks good, nice satin finish. I replaced the headlights with some ebay shit, painted the center bar, and installed a billet bowtie for the front end.
            I also picked up a lowering kit from Beltech. 6" drop on the way. tossed the back bumper for a rollpan, and tinted the windows.

                I picked up a rear end from the junkyard and stuck a Tru-Trac in it. (same as the quaife). I had baby Mike weld up the ends, before I painted it and dressed it up with a nice cover. Then I threw the mess on the truck. I also got a rear disc conversion for a full size Chevy truck, and made it fit on my little truck. not too shabby.

                  I painted the entire interior with that trim paint, and threw in a few more goodies...wood steering wheel, and a real Hurst shifter.

                    Here's the LSJ that I'm going to use. I got it from Sam, who got it from Chris, who hydro-locked it years ago.

                        It looks so much better sitting low. But, I'm already thinking beyond that. I'm testing wood for a bed that I'm going to make. Here's a sample of burned-in wood grain on yellow pine.

                          BAM. I got the bed strips from some trucking company. They go to a 47' chevy pickup. I trimmed them down to fit, and Sam burned the shit out of his arm helping out. LOL. Did the whole job in one weekend over at Mike's garage. many beers were had, a little blood spilled, but it was worth it.

                            I was doing some preliminary measuring and found the Ecotec to be taller than the small 4 banger in the truck, so I needed a little more hood clearance. Another call to Summit fixed that shit. Cowl hood installed.

                            I also started playing with some paint colors for the engine...found this burnt copper from VHT and found what I was looking for.

                              I went back to the junkyard to find a trans that would mate up to the Saturn engine. So, using a Colorado transmission with a Sky bellhousing seemed to do the trick.
                              Now I had to get a clutch that would work. The Colorado trans was a standard GM 26 spline, the flywheel is sized for the Ecotec. Hmm. I found a guy in Tampa that makes clutches (Tampa Clutch Supply). I brought the flywheel over to him along with a pressure plate and the required measurements, and we made something work.
