I was wondering if you were to take an s-10 flywheel and turn it down to where a ford 2.3 ring gear would fit it and find a disk if you think it would work, s-10 flywheels are very small.

All that work will cost big bucks. Take your stock flywheel have it cut down to about 12#. GO GET UM.

dustin i want to do that also in my s-10 book you can get a brand new flywheel for only 130 bux a ring gear will run around 20.
i think its something we will need to look into what does everyone else think about this?

Well I think all someone would have to do is turn it down on a lathe and drill the bolt patern for a 2.3,
