95 is probably the worst year to try to do anything with unless its a v8 swap. It's the dreaded obd1.5, some are one way, others are another. Just a pain. serious power comes with serious money

the intake is pretty good flowing, you can try to get a better filter element and ditch the box. Other than that maybe open the exhaust up a little, but you do NEED backpressure so no straight pipes or true duals, it will actually loose power. we are talking maybe 5-10hp max after all that tho.

With bolt-ons, an extra 55 hp would be pretty hard on a 4.3. (I'm not countning forced induction as a bolt-on!)

You can build a decent 4.3; it's just a 350 with two cylinders lobbed off. Drive the blazer as is, and buy a used 4.3 and start rebuilding it into the hp monster you want in your garage. Then swap em out one weekend!
