First off, there isn't a 6.5L cummins, there is the 5.9L and 6.7L, second off, your going to have a lot of work involved in getting the S-10 ready to handle the added weight and power of the cummins. There is a guy over on CompD that has done this and it came out pretty good, but his truck is strictly a drag truck, so the swap is a little different. Good luck on your search!

I was going to suggest the CompD truck. If someone is a member there they can link you the thread. It is a lot of work, but it can be done if you have the funds and time.

its going to be a drag truck only? what does a stock s10 4 or 6cyl weigh? a cummins 6BT weighs 11-1200lbs depending on what is on it.

you need to do A LOT more research.


oh well, i have a map to the darkside
