I have a couple 4jb1t engines for sale and know them very well but have not put one into an S10. It'll fit and as long as you have an MUA-5 to go with it, it wouldn't be too hard.

Every 4JB1-T I've seen is for 4wd. There may be oil pan clearance to consider, even if you use a 2wd transmission, right? And if your S10 IS 4wd, is the front diff on the same side as the MUA-5 output shaft?
