1986 Chevrolet S10 Blazer 2 Door Rear Wheel Drive. This truck is a work in progress. Future plans include finishing up the engine compartment, detailing it, and adding a couple more odds and ends. The interior needs to be gone through, I plan on changing out the stock seats for some nice leather buckets. I want to have white racing stripes painted on and tint the windows. I may be a girl but don't let that fool you, I love fast and powerful cars. I know alot about cars and what I don't know my boyfriend is teaching me.
The engine is a built Chevy 327 with Fuelie heads. The transmission is a built turbo 350 automatic. It dynos at over 400 horsepower. I am unsure of the 1/4 mile time right now because the track is closed for the season, I plan on running it in the spring.
The engine is a built 327. The bottom end is the factory steel crank and H-beam rods, the block is bored with flat top pistons 10.5:1 compression. The heads are old school Fuelie heads that have been ported and have had a 3 angle valve job. The valves are 2.02 intake with 1.6 exhaust. The cam is a hydraulic roller style 550 lift 300 advertised duration, very very lumpy idle. It has roller lifters with 1.6 roller tip rockers. It has a double roller timing chain, but I may change it to a noisy gear drive. Ignition is a Mallory Uni-lite distributor with Accel Super Stock Coil, and Accel 8.8mm race wires. It has a Edelbrock Victor Jr. high rise aluminum intake with a Holley 750 4 barrel. It also has the s10 v8 swap headers made by Hedman. The engine dynos well over 400 horsepower. The transmission is a fully built race ready turbo 350 with a 2800 stall converter and manual valve body. The rear end is built with a posi and 3:73 gears. The exhaust is full 2.5 inch true duals with single chamber Flowmaster mufflers. The suspension is an all Belltech drop, with springs and spindles in the front dropping it 5 inches, and springs and blocks in the rear dropping it 6 inches. The wheels are Centerline 17"x9" polished aluminum. The paint is Hugger Orange, the body has shaved door handles. The hood is a Harwood fiberglass cowl hood with a 2 inch rise. There is also a fiberglass roll pan out back.
