Has anyone heard of any problems using a s10 rearend behind a big block? Have had some
people tell me that they are not strong enough...I have about 500 hp or so in the big block.:D

Not an expert here but I do not think the S-10 rearend will be a problem with that kinda horsepower. I think more of the problem would be having a stout tranny and trying to get all that power to the ground.

Just a thought,

I have never coupled a s-10 rear with a 500 horse engine. If I were to lay money on it I would say it is only a matter of time before it becomes a grenade! I would go after something with a larger ring gear- 9in ford, chevy 12-bolt, or dana 60. If you use one of these or something similar you may save yourself some headaches!
