Did the s10 come with a 4.3L V6? I know they come with the 2.8Ls, those are 60* blocks and would not be compatible.

Yes, S10s came with 4.3L V6's, starting in 1987.

I am pretty sure that the oil pans are different, but with GM it is hard to tell. Your best bet is to take a picture of each and compare.

Well, I would think that it would be easy to ask the parts counter person if the oil pan gaskets are the same set, or at least compare the two before you buy one!
