    Your money would be better spent with a V8.


    IMO :D

    Stay away from the Supercharger kits. I've only heard of belt slipping woes on those. Big thing there is most of them eliminate the automatic belt tensioner and most can never get it right with the manual one. If you want to go boost turbo is your best route on these trucks. You might be able to set something up with a roots blower, but that will take some huge intake modifications.

    my buddy has a 4.3 5speed s10, not a blazer and to be honest the super charger he has on it didn't make the crazy of a difference , he had a typhoon before that and i remember driving that and it being a lot faster just in comparison

    i agree with everyone say a v-8 its well worth the money

    he didn't pay for the charger as well so probably why hes not to bummed on the difference in power haha

    I would say turbo, 350 swap is easy but it is going to add up as you change small things here and there. Lots of views but not much advise cause everyone has an opinion and you wouldn't be a whole better off after hearing 75 opinions except to maybe cancel 1 idea, which may sound like the supercharger for now. There, I gave my opinion. Now the hard part. Deciding which way to go.
