How would a 2000 Blazer look all monstered now? I'm hopefully going to start the production in the very near future. Any recommended parts? im looking for a super boost in horsepower, but street legal. any recommendations will help. :0

V8 swap. Get a 350 or an LS1, this 4.3L V6 isn't worth upgrading.

350 is probably an easier swap, but the LS series engines are awesome. I'm a little partial though lol.

If you have the cash, a blown LS3 would be mint.

What are you going to use the truck for? Wheeling? I'd suggest a supercharger just so you have a little more low end grunt. I know it causes parasitic energy loss but you don't have as big of as you would with a turbo.

Personally you should have a colour/paint scheme like this, but without the huge monster logo on the door, maybe a smaller one angled above the driver's headlight.

Yeah, I'm not sure on how much work is required to make on fit but I've seen a LS1 in a blazer before.
