Syclone Killer

Just sitting here watching YouTube and figured Iíd let people in on this. I have done a lot of work already and in the next week I hope to get back on it

First itís a very sentimental truck that canít be sold outside of the family so there is your why.

87 GMC S15 2WD base model that has been in the family almost 20 years now, itís had many different drivetrain variations but has always been a stick shift. Itís had a dirt track 350, a 383, tuned port 305, , Saginaw 4 speed, Muncie 4 speed, and a T5 5 speed.

Well here is whatís going down, All aluminum, and I mean including the block 5.3 with a stage 3 BTR cam and matching valve train, carbureted setup because I want to plus there is nothing that sounds like a cammed carb motor.
The trans will be a T56 that started like from a GTO and is modified now
4WD frame swap

Oh yea, the most important part, NP149 transfer case, yes itís going to be an LS powered, 6 speed manual, ALL wheel drive truck.

This is how it used to sit

Re: Syclone Killer

And to add just a tid bit more of a Syclone feeling I bought a rusted out Sonoma Gt. Then stripped the entire body kit, interior that is identical to a syclone except the syclone script on the seats, power windows, power mirrors, Cluster, wiring harness, I mean ALL of it.

Re: Syclone Killer

Ok here are some more, only reason this has been on hold was because I wanted to get the Lincoln on the road before bringing it home and having another dead car in the garage.

The trans is using the tail housing from a c6 corvette trans I had laying around. Since the trans no longer has a spot in the rear for a shifter I managed to adapt a cobra mustang shifter and put it in the “forward location.” Had to cut off the extra shift rail, then installed a McLeod lug for the shifter to engage. It all works great and smooth through the gears.

I still don’t remember how I found it, but I found a guy that makes the black steel adapter to go from a corvette trans to a 4wd transfer case for the full-size truck guys. Well being the np149 came in a couple years of the Escalade and the Silverado SS it’s a full-size transfer case bolt pattern.

It’s been months since I did all of this so trying to remember stuff.
Oh the oil pan is a 4wd swap pan I wasn’t fond of because I like my cast aluminum pans but you do what you gotta do. And I had to hammer it for diff clearance because I wanted my motor low and not use any kind of body lift. No one makes 4wd s10 LS swap mounts to put the engine where I wanted so I modified 2wd summit mounts till it sat where I wanted.

Re: Syclone Killer

Here is a reference to show how far the shifter had to move. Sad part is the GTO trans already had an aftermarket shifter that I couldnít use.

Re: Syclone Killer

This was me playing with an idea, so unlike the Syclone the Sonoma Gt never had cladding around the wheel arches. The wheel opening shape is identical from a round body to a square body, that made me think well why not use S10 Xtreme flares. I’m going to have to mock all the gt kit up before cutting on the flares but I’m pretty sure I can make them work and all tie in

It's not really an alternate tinkering when there's a forum on this site specifically dedicated to it. But no I don't have an issue with you posting it here. It might get seen by more if it was in the S10/15 section. I also have an S10 and I don't look here for other S10s, so I didn't get to see it right away. I think with your engine choice you're going to burn through some tires.

Scroll through the s10 build page about halfway down and youíll see they are all atleast a year old. More people in here appreciate the modifications happening.

Preciate it. That is at my folks place. I just have a funny shaped 4 car garage. But hey out of the elements is out of the elements. Let me walk outside and get a couple pictures of its current state. Then everyone will be up to speed with where it is literally sitting now.

Re: Syclone Killer

Itís a wreck right now but itís my wreck so itíll be fine. Anyways as you can see the shifter is in a great spot, Iíll end up modifying the Sonoma gt factory floor shift console to accept a cup holder and shifter boot for the stick. I have front pads now that I didnít have when I put the front end together so Iíll get those on, Iím using th 98-04 blazer dual pistons. I started messing with the headers a few nights ago, slight dinging with be necessary on the firewall and near the clutch slave cylinder as they werenít meant for a 4wd or stick shift. And for good measure a picture of it and big girl, had to move it out of the garage temporarily.

Re: Syclone Killer

Well ****. This one was short lived. Family issues and let’s just say I don’t wanna own a vehicle where someone can say they gave me something. So I’m selling off the parts, and returning to sender

Re: Syclone Killer

I'm sorry to hear it. I think we all know what it's like to get sideswiped by family situations. Have you thought about buying another truck to be your base vehicle? This was quite a setup you had going, and would be an amazing truck to drive.

No because honestly an s10 is not ďcoolĒ enough for me. That truck had special reasons so Iíll stick to my c10, the Lincoln, finish building the lawn mower, and maybe get another bike or water toy
