    yesterday i helped my friend and I installed it on his '00 z71....this think is AWESOME....after we installed, we went out to test it, and tryin to get a 0-60 time he couldn't keep from breakin the tires loose on the takeoff...now it accellerates faster but it only goes up to 3500 rpm when before it went to 5000...for anyone who'se thinkin about gettin one GET IT...

    For a Blazer I would rather use K&amp;Ns X-STREAM flow top. They flow better and they come with a Pre filter to catch all the mud dust and big stuff.
    A buddy of mine is running the X-Stream flow top on his open road racer Mustang. It works VERY well. I'm putting one on my K5 soon.
    Heres a link for more info:<a target="_blank" href=http://www.knfilters.com/X-stream.htm>K&amp;N X-Stream</a>

    The main thing I have against the FIPK is the filter area is so small and they get dirty faster when you use them offroad a lot. When its dusty you have to clean them all the time. But they do work good on the pavement or light duty 4 wheeling. Gitting rid of that stock POS air box adds a good ammount of air flow.
