I have only owned my blazer for two weeks now, and i love the truck, but i Dont like the power. i have owned more than one 6cyl in my life and they have had some decent power, but this 2.8,(can you say no balls) i want to put on a bigger tire (30x9.5-15) put dont want to lose performance. the way i see it i can do one of three things to the truck:
spend a heap of cash and convert it to a v8
rebuild the 2.8 i just took out of my fathers 86 cherokee and add a cam
buy the 3.4 liter i found w/30k for 600.00 and go from there.
if i do go with the 3.4 liter, will it use the same aftermarket cam as the 2.8?
also FYI: the motor i had put in my fathers cherokee came out of a 1987 camaro
(2.8) the engine works great but there was no boss on the block for the fuel pump.(no block off plate either) any help in this would be greatly appriecated.
also what we need to do to get the s-10 parts problem is to get people together.
like what they do with the jeep rallies and such. let them SEE how many are interested then they will produce. thanks again
