Few Questions

I have a 85 Fullsize Blazer with 6in/36in tires. I had a 388 stroker built and placed in the puppy but it seems the engine is lacking its power potential. What would be a good setup for Distributor? Carb? Intake? Spark Plugs/Wires, Coil? Ect... thanks. What oil would ya'll recommend running? Also I am looking for some interior parts? Let me know Thanks

Re: Few Questions

good year...ok so it's the same year as mine and i want to be special. Anyway personal favorites: Mallory ignition stuff, use that distributer. Plugs and wires, just go with decent, the low resistance wires sometimes mess up unless you have them loomed all nice and pretty and nowhere near metal, unless you are running silly hot (crap is still crap though). Carb. I have an edelbrock...holley is still better as far as I am concerned, watch the cfm size though, don't drown it. Intake I use edelbrock, depends on the setup you want though, sometimes a different name will have a better set up. Oil from my expierence synthetic is better...don't know that it is better enough to justify the cost. It is normally a bad idea to switch to synth. if you already run normal, unless you like swapping seals. I run 10w40 at the suggestion of the machinist that set up my engine. I'm not running a stroker though, I have a 30 over 350.
Interior/exterior etc parts...I've used LMC they are pretty good they have a website someone will have the addy to.
good luck [img]images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

Re: Few Questions

You say you haev 36" tires, what gearing do you have? The engine might be doing what it needs to, but the gears may have the power band comming in at a different point than where the engine is produces it's power.
