Default 2000 blazer new engine

I was wondering if anyone has ever put an rb26 engine in a blazer or if it would be possible? These engines are out of skylines and are known for being avows to make over 1000 hp fairly cheap. I need to do something my engines on it's last legs and I want to make her go fast as hell

Uhm...yea man the time and money you'd have into this swap...you could build a nice 8 cylinder and have all the power you need.

I can't afford skyline plus I want a sleeper. An 8 cylinder would require just as much to do.

um not really..If you think about adapters,transmissions etc,driveshaft work. you'd have too much in that right there....the trans you have now will bolt up to a chevy v8. you can buy a new crate 350 for 1800 bucks,get a painless wiring kit,engine mounts,have it tuned and thats the most of it.

the rb26 you need
trans mount work
driveshaft made
custom wiring i doubt u can buy anywhere
ecm to be programmed
custom engine bay work. and the fact your still gonna have to build that 4 banger to push 4500 pounds around,then spend even more money to modify it to be "fast as hell"..

First of all The rb26 is an inline 6 pushing over 350bhp stock and second I have a 350 in a Toyota Tacoma and one going in 93 Bonneville already. I want something different. I know it would be expensive but it still is cheaper than a $75-90,000 skyline. V8s are a thing o beauty but you can't get them run with rice burners. There to heavy and you can't get the same power bandwidth out of them. My cousin has a 400 small block that is set up for a quarter and he cant take road courses an the such like burners. Also I am planning on switching out the electronics to the skylines and tranny and motor mounts are nothing. Aftermarket skyline mounts and my welder. The only thing would be driveshaft mods and that's still not a huge thing. I'm just wondering if it is possible.

Click those links in my previous post, in the first link the guy did an rb20det swap that's very detailed.
In the second link I provided is a build thread where he swapped out the rb20det for a rb25.

I vote go for it man, way cooler than V8 swapped Blazer for sure.

I did. Thank you. They were very helpful. Also I would have to change over the ECM if I went to a 350 anyways wouldn't I ? Woul a 4.3s work with a 350. I want to stick with something smaller v6 size? If someone has a suggestion of a v6 that can make 1000 hp for a not outrageous price I'd be open to it. You guys do relize I am talking about putting almost as much hp in a car as a bugatti right? It would require massive amounts of work in any car even the skyline. And if I was to use a 350 an build it to 600 or 700 hp, which I the minimum I'd want I'd need new tranny and driveshaft and such anyways wouldn't I. A stock s10s parts wouldn't handle that.
