    35s would be perfect, and bfgoodrich makes mud terrain 35s that mount onto an 18 inch rim. and you all know how 18s look in little s-10 wheelwells..

    back to the subject at hand
    im my own opinion, i dont think hooking up v6 engines, engines that werent really intended for lots of horsepower, but a cross between gas conservation and having a little bit of balls, is worth it. if you want somethin that is a gas guzzler, but puts out big hp numbers, and has a nice sound to it, get a v8. youd get more props doing a v8 conversion than you would trying to slap on a super charger or turbo charger.. i just dont think 4 or 6 cylinder engines are worth hooking up. sorry. im sure there will be people on this forum that love v6s and will try to contend this post. doesnt really matter what i think anyway

    why would you get more props doing a v-8 conversion in a truck that everyone else does i think custom fitting a turbo is a much better prop getter than a 350

    i wanted to get twin turbos and put those babies on my v6. i am just unsure about a v8 because i have never convertered one and i'm a little worried about it becoming the "never ending" project.

    i just dont think 4 or 6 cylinder engines are worth hooking up. sorry.
    i have a big bloc so im not a v6 lover but one comes to mind my fav. all time car the Buick GN.

    v6 turbo and in 87 it wasted any v8 out. nothing could touch that 6 and it is still doing that almost to this day.

    that v6 has balls.

    900 hp from a supra, with a twin turbo v6. :)

    In Missouri it's illegal to put a small block in an s-10 focking legislature, so it's more logical to put in a turbo. You can pull big numbers, and have a beefy engine, with a v6. Grand Nationals, syclones, and tyhpoons ring a bell?

    I understand your point, just don't necessarily agree with it.

    In a way i do agree with 4x4 about dropping in a v8 engine, but however as a 88 s10 blazer (6 cylinder) owner, i dont think i would beef it up anymore then it already is, im more of a 'stylish' individual and go with looks rather then speed or power, i believe this is goes with the 'my dick is bigger then your dick' senerio.

    But, then again, thats my opionon, and dont mean to come off as a grumpy critic, but yes, a blazer with high mileage is like dating a 70 year old women with breast implants?

    Moral, getting a new engine would be number1 or rebuilding it, then again u can go with 4x4 and drop in a (new) v8 engine, or rebuilt engine. However, no one said anything about turbo charged 8cyl. Since your doing the whole engine thing, why not go all the way out :D

    yea they sell twin trubo kits. check out conley perfomance and other turbo gear head dudes

    if you wanna do a cheaper setup goto the junk yard and find some 80's model thunderbird turbo coupes

    they have lil turbos. take that setup from 2 of them and incorporate it on a v8

    they have a guy somewhere on the net that spent less than $2000 in the whole setup and is running 10's in the 1/4 with a twin turbo 351 now in a mercury caprie

    Could be, but just remember that supra = money.... and for you to actually get a twin turbo setup worked for your blazer = more money. Good luck, and I wanna see pics when your done.

    i think blazerinthework is getting in over his head with this thirst for horsepower
    yo blazerinwork, i heard that if you just remove your hood, it acts as a 'universal' turbo and supercharger, and you can gain as much as 45-55% more hp!!! try it!!!
