    The big brown truck just dropped off my new Edelbrock Performer EPS #2701 intake manifold and new Edelbrock Performer #1406 carburetor. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    It looks like I am only 2-3 weeks away from having all the parts together to swap a freshened up 350 into my Blazer. Now all I need to pick up are some miscellaneous odds and ends, a new HEI distributor and some headers.

    Anyone got any good things to say about the Dynomax ceramic coated long-tubes for the 4WD fullsize Blazers / Jimmys? I'm leaning towards them right now.

    what you mean dynocraps. they are over priced POS. the fitment is poor at the mounting flang, the ceremic coating will lasts a year at the most, and the passenger side collector and flang come within 1/4" of the passenger side shackel.

    get some Doug Thorleys

    Go with Edlebrock headers. I have had them on my 89 for 6 years. Good fit, they don't hit anything. I would suggest that you go to Auto Zone and get some GOOD Mr Gasket header gaskets. The ones they come with bite.

    I got some new goodies for my truck too. I got some Flowtech afterburner headers and a Hooker competition dual 2 1/4" mandrel bent exhaust system. And yes, this is turning into a poser /forums/images/graemlins/truck.gif

    Nice collection of toys there too! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I looked at Thorleys but don't want to spend that kind of coin on this truck at the moment. Am open to anything else in the $300 and down price range, though.

    Those Flowtechs look nice -- I might give a set of those a spin.

    We put thorleys on our 97 burb and am very pleased with them. But they are pricey.
