    I like my diesel and I like driving with my back window down but can't stand the fumes blowing back in. Has anybody seen a good looking and performing wind deflector for the rear. I don't really care for the factory ones. My blazer is an '86.

    I have a chrome / stainless steel wind deflector on the rear of my 1983 that USED to have 6.2 clanker in it, (now a 454) and it appears to be stock. Hope that helps.

    Give ya a hint...play with that thing called an EGR valve....PLUG THE LINE...that helps...also some additive will help. I found something that does it...just don't know the name!! Will inform when found out....

    How does your exhaust exit? If its straight out the back, that would be the problem because the fumes get sucked in the cab. Mine exit pionting toward the corners and that helps with the fumes, even though I have a gasser, but i still smell them occasionally...

    i solved that problem by routing the pipes to exit in front of the rear tires. when i get my headers on i am thinking of routing the pipes about a few inches out of the muffler and down with tips under the truck.

    Mine exits out each corner. I like my diesel. When it goes out I want to throw in a Cummins.

    Mine go out the sides right AFTER the back tires...I would rather have mine exit out the front fenders straight up!!! If my apt complex complains one more time about "That fricken tractor"......show em the HP...

    I'm new to the 6.2 thing. What will plugging the EGR valve hose do?
