    2.8's blow!!!! i got one in mine, has been rebuilt, and is actually a good running and dependable motor!! knock on wood ' ' but every other one i have ever encountered sucked!!! as far as fast, just depends on who you wanna race.....chevettes, omni's, luvs, pintos, lmao youll be able to take those guys! and yugo's and a le'car. some vega's and pinto automatic's also. I could have had a v-8 for the price I paid for my rebuilt 2.8. I've always said it mite make a good anchor for my boat. my 4cyl inboard boat motor has more horsepower.

    2.8's are slow, period. a 13.9 run in a 2.8 would take more money than a v8 swap, with less gas milage. and an omni would whoop a 2.8's ass so bad.





    as far as the 2.8 and ls motor falling, i agree with JS, less weight and more wind resistence(larger surface area)

    well i agree with everything you said except the omni beating the 2.8. i just have a mild cam and exhaust on mine and i can run with other v6's and 4 bangers. a omni is the epitamy of slow!! give the o bobo motor some credit, lol.........man watching the weather channel.....were fucked!!!!!!!!! hurricanes blow!!! power will probably be out for freakin days............FAWKKKK

    might? i understand why by the looks of it you may frown on it, but they are still very impressive for what that are, and this coming from a man who hates mopar. they are kind of popular around here, and those who think they are slow are usually the ones spewing excuses.

    Don't listen to these guys, a 2.8 in a Blazer can be fast , if the Blazer is powered by a V8!

    guys what I found was I could get a rebuilt v8 cheeper than rebuilt 2.8 or a 3.4. but in cali you must have an engine from a truck or a car the same year or newer than yours if you replace your engine with a v8. so you must have all the smog crap from a v-8 and install it with the v8. then go to a referee and get inspected. as far as the 3.4 in cali they wont let you do a strait swap for the 2.8.it wont pass smog with the 2.8 smog crap. so I say go with the v8:smoker:

    Update:My avalanche was totaled by my ex-gf. My business is in ruins. I now plan on finishing the engine repairs to my Saturn, and sell it. Once I get the bills paid off, I'm going to fix my Blazer.
    History:I bought a 2001 saturn sc2, then a 2005 avanche 1500 2wd, then a '87 S10 blazer 2dr 2wd on 07/24/2010, and on 04/01/2011 a '84 s10 blazer 2dr 2wd V8 drag racer(sort of)
