    My 2WD Blazer is 99% done. The drivetrain is complete, the paint is on, the softtop is stylin. All I need now is a dash.
    Tomorrow I hit the strip. I have a 383 with Edelbrock heads, 9.5 comp, 218/230 Z Cam, Performer RPM, Q-Jet, Headers, 2.5 duals, TCI 700R4, 2400 stall, 4.11 Eaton Posi. I will be running my 295/50 BFG Radials. It hooks up good if I don't preload it too hard.

    Any guesses?

    WOW, are you kidding, because I really hope so. That's an 11.88 1/4 mile.

    I am thinking the 9.00 and maybe a 8.00 ~ 8.5. I mean I do not know the engine/driver combo very well, but damn those trucks are not that light, mine ways 3100 with my 2.2.

    My old V8 S10 ran a 13.88 with a warm 350.

    I use a conversion from 1/8 mile to 1/4 of 1.65, which has not failed me yet.

    The weight is 3100? Thats pretty lite for that truck. Compare that to a stock v8 4th gen camaro which is around 3500. Im curious if there is any time difference with the soft top off compared to on.

    My 92 B4C Camaro weighed 3100.

    Take the soft top off.

    I am just hoping to be under 10 seconds. The drivetrain is great, but the weight...probably 4300????

    looks good. what rear gears are you running thats will give a better understand of 1/8th and 1/4 times
    and it will tell if its a bottom end truck or a top end.(fist half of track or second half)

    First post says 4.11's:D

    I had a 77 Impala with a 400 sbc with a cam holley 600cfm, headers and duals, other than that the car was stock, th350 with a stock stall converter, no shift kit, 3.08 open rear end.
    It ran a best time of 9.96 in the 1/8.

    Mileage-probably 14 if I could restrain myself, I can't so far.
    2.5 Spindle drop front, 2" shackle drop rear-I like a hot rod style rake
    12 Bolt Eaton Posi 4.11 - Single track burnout pic is before rear end upgrade

    I think this truck could do a 14.5 to 15 sec. in the quarter mile; but this is if the truck is dialed in reasonably well. Because the truck is so heavy and difficult to hook up, I would revise my estimate to around 8 sec. in the 1/8 mile.

    My geuss is that if the truck has a brand new engine, which has just been fired up for the first time recently, then there are going to be some bugs, which need to be worked out, and this whole guessing game is not going to be worth a sh!t.
