    Post 97 Update for blazer s-10

    I have an 85 Chevy Blazer and Ive seen all over the place 97 updates (front end) to include bumber grill head lamp assembly and corner lenses. But I havent seen one with a price. If any ones selling one let me know. Also, flipping the breather. Good? Bad? Less gas mileage? More? Increased Horse? Decreased? Some one fill me in a little.

    Flipping the breather is the best thing I could have done when I got mine. If your truck is a 2.8L, DO IT! Gas mileage is shitty regardless, you have nothing to lose. My mileage hasn't done anything, no more, no less. Your truck will react and SOUND WAY better. Trust me. The sound alone is awesome.

    97 front end

    I have the 97 front end and not bolted up becuase the 1st gen left a gap between the hood and the grill and it was a very noticeable gap so its gone and I just left the 85 front end on it then some other thats have the 86 s-10 tahoe in pictures it looked fairly decent. but mine just didnt match up not exactly sure why it did that but i got rid of it and am now re-shopping for one that Ive seen bolt on the 85.

    how can I be full of shit when I can back it up by the place I purchased it from?! www.4customrides.com and do the search on the model number about that I gave it the( MT- #####) there are no pictures avalable on the site. and mine just made me mad becuase of the inwanted gap Im thinking maybe shimming it?

    front end

    the only parts I see on your link are for a 93 update for the older blazers from 82-90. I will believe the 97 front end on a first gen. when I see it. please post the actual part number not just mt-######.

    until you post the actual # you have not backed anything up so yes I think you are full of shit either that or you don't know the difference between a #3 and a #7.

    proof that you cannot tell the difference between a 7 and 3. I am not trying to be an ass I am just trying to get this straight before everybody gets excited over nothing.

    3's 7's its all the same

    yes it is a 93 so im sorry, i have it and it does but an interesting twist on the 1st gens, but I havent gotten it to look right I look at it every day and every day Im disqusted that it didnt match the rest of the body on the blazer now I have it Im inpressed but I am not amazed becuase its just a little out of tune, Im still making custom shimms to add to it maybe that will work if not Im trying body filler, one way or another it will be going on.

    Ok, don't wanna sound retarded or anything, but what's "flipping the breather"?? And what do ya gotta do to do it? Cause I've got a 2.8 as well and I wouldn't mind having a little kick to it.
