The big deal with a mini starter is spinning the motor at a slightly slower speed so it doesnt burp back through the carb on alcohol. This will keep from blowing powervalves. It does help in that aspect, and will turn over higher compression motors better (gear reducted) and it also is lighter physically. Over all I think they are definitely worth every penny.

I disagree. I have used a chevy starter that was made for s-10's for quite sometime now. It is a high torque starter and does the same thing that the high dollar starters do. Plus it is a little lighter than the big stock chevy starters.

What is the price of the S10 starter and for what year/motor size did you ask for at the parts house???

It come oem on the chevy s-10's that have the v-6 engine. I will find out the exact parts # and/or specifics on it and post it on here.

I do not remember what it came on exactely. I was sponsored by an atuo/electric business and they just gave them to me. That is why I do not know the costs and what exactely they came on.

The starter I was talking about came on a 4.3 v6 in the s-10's. It is a gear reduction mini starter. But I have been told that it has jumped up in price.

It used to be around 110.00 but now runs 150.00. So you would actually be better off running a regular racing mini starter as they run around 129.00.

My supplier did mention you still might be able to find this starter at some big A stores at the cheaper price.

Hope this helps.
