    Horsepower of a 4.3L 5-speed.

    I just got my g-tech pro so we decided to try it on my buddies 1994 s-10 pickup extended cab with a 4.3L 5-speed. We ran a consistant 90 RWHP and his 0-60 was 14.6 sec.

    Are you sure that you had the G-tech setup right?

    My G-tech pro gave me

    112 RWHP and a 0-60 in 10.12 seconds.

    Thats on a 4.3 TBI motor in a 4 door blazer. I havent done a tuneup in almost 5 years...

    maybe i had the weight wrong, but it didn't feel very fast. plus you cant really set it up wrong for measuring the 0-60 time, you just have to get it level and it was dead nuts .00.

    Was the street you were on level, or was it hilly? Try doing the 0-60 thing again...or teach your friend how to drive a stick shift better. :)

    the street was level. we did it a few times and that was the best run. hes also is pretty good at stick. i just think the problem in all reality is that the truck is very slow.
