    Does anybody know of any good site to buy performance parts for a 2.2L S-10??? There are not very many places to get good parts and I was wondering of any high performance mods you guys know of.

    2.2=low performance. you can do a few things to get it moving, but you're using the wrong engine to try and tune. unlike some of the tiny import engines, this one won't handle a bunch of boost or a bunch of nitrous, and it's horribly underpowered to begin with. a few things you can do to begin with, though:

    underdrive pulley
    K&N FIPK
    JET STAGE I or II module
    a few companies make a header for the 2.2
    none of these are all that expensive. the JET module is the most expensive, i believe.

    First thing I'd do it either chip it or get a reprogrammer. 95mph speed governer owns you.

    and yes the borla turbo mufflers sound good on them

    well he asked for the 2.2 not the 4.3

    and 260rwhp? 4.3? with a few simple mods it shouldnt be any higher than say 180 to the wheels, ive seen tons of dyno sheets on 4.3's youve got to have a really off Dyno or a Supercharger/Turbo to pull those numbers

    :werd: Going from 190bhp to 260whp is a little more than just an intake and exhaust.

    im not worried about putting out a ton of HP i dont need to race the fastest i can go at any given time is 65 on the freeway i dont need a speeding ticket cause i would have to sell my truck cause i cant afford it. i am currently saving for a 5.7 L camaro setup for drag racing so i dont need to worry about 100 HP right now

    One of my friends here in Omaha said that his uncle could do a turbo for me.... He said he would build up the engine, exhaust, intakes, and even the rear end for only 2800. I am still trying to decide on it any thoughts???

    for that price, you could buy a crate GM 350. granted, that wouldn't get you a tranny, or any of the other things you need, but there's a lot you could do for that. on a 2.2, i'd be hesitant to spend that much money for that little return. if you have a 4.3, i'd give it some serious thought.

    the latest MiniTruckin magazine I got from 7-11, they modded a 2.2 S10 and had pictures for everything they did.

    I don't remember everything they did but here's a few:

    replace stock clutch fan with electric fan
    they replaced the headers, cat-back
    replaced the stock pullies with smaller ones
    cold air intake kit

    it's in this issue: [​IMG]
