I've never used one, but I've read some so-so reviews of the torker II manifold. It's a low rise single plane, so it doesn't make much low rpm power, or really that much top end. The Performer RPM seems to be better. With 10.1 compression, I'm guessing a decent sized cam? With an automatic (assuming stock torque converter?) it won't exactly be a good combination. Add in how heavy a blazer is compared to a camaro, and it's shaping up to be a pretty good mismatch.

What gears do you have in the rear end? Tall (numerically lower) gears, and a tight converter will make a dog out of an engine build with parts designed to make power at high rpm.
