    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!!!
    He asked a serious question, i think the best interest of everybody on the forum is to give him a serious answer, and not all this :bs:.

    Technically it depends on the slope of your hood and stuff, it would help dissapate heat faster though.

    Based on the level of your questions and responses, building your own turbo setup is going to be a challenge for you. So many things come into play to optimize a turbo. Each item, if not corrected, will damage the motor and/or turbos more so than even a supercharger.

    If you can buy a "bolt on" turbo kit, you will might have a chance.

    ok i kidna didn;t reead teh original post but ia m bgonna post what i think anywya... first of all good luck findign a botl on twin turbo kit.. haha... andywya evne a ssingle turbo or supercharger is mroe work then u think.. IMO its not realyl jsut a botl on.. sure u can bolt something on a stock motor.. and u probablty won;t be able to run much boost or anything... even if u wanted twin turbos u'd probably have to rtear the whoel engien apart to beefen up teh bottom end for the shit load of power and shit load of boost u'd be making.. superchaerger is a fairly nice idea... i don;t knwo much about it.. but i woudlnt; think teh computer would liek ti too much.... i don;t even think ther is a supercharge kit for pre-96 engines... its a lot of wok man.. don;t consider any of htis simply bolt on stuff.. if u don;t really know what u r doing.. and if ur nto willign to put in a lot of time and money then i woudlnt; evne consider doign any of this.. now obviously a v8 convo. is a cheap and economical way to go.. its a lot of work.. but not realyl that much... that is if u knwo what u r doign.... now as for v6 compared to v8.... its probably cheaper to build a v8... but v6 making say 200hp in a car is comparable to a v8 making 300hp in teh same car (IMO).. becaseu the v6 weighs less. i mean its all jsut power to weight distruibution.. the 4.32 is jsut a SBC with two cylinders cut off.. so it can make power easy


    i don;t know if i got off topic there or what.. i jstu kidna started typing....

    you can buy a bolt on turbo kit for about $3000+ but you still need to go through and beef of the block if your gonna run it down the track alot

    but the guy who spent less than $2000 on a twin turbo project had a sweet ass 10sec 351 stock pistons and everything.

    do a v8 or enjoy the v6 or if you have money pay someone to set this up for you


    here finally found the link, its a ford but just do everything the same on a chevy engine

    i think i'm gonna just buy the shit and leave it at the shop for a week and build a tab. i know i can't put on a turbo or drop in a v8 by my self, even with half drunk friends. someone said it before in the forum "custom", i didn't want to go the v8 route becuase it seems everyone is doing that. and NO i didn't decide to go with the twin turbos becuase someone mentioned a supra( i have seen one with the turbos, nice........)

    not everyone is going the v8 route b/c some cant afford it. it just seems like everyone is b/c a few people on here from each state has a v8 blazer.

    most people do it for the power. but around my home about 3-4 people at the most have v8 blazers and they only get driven on the weekends or to shows. either way you get some kickass power

    i think the best way to go would be to get a typhoon turbo manifold, turbonetics t3/t4 turbo, custom piping, blow off valve'
    blitz turbor timer/boost meter, then have your ecu remapped.
    but you would need lower compresson piston,s and rings, stronger gaskets are a must if you're gonna go with big boost
    (20 psi or higher). if you do that you shold be pushin 400 to 425 hp with that setup. it would probab;y cost anywhere between
    3500 to 6000 but it would be money well spent

    oh yeah a fuel pressure regulator and bigger injecteros are a plus. a stronger inition system would really help as well
