    I'm just curious as to how fast other blazers might go. my blazer is stock for the most part(1979 k5 2x4), and the speedometer ends at 100, but I have reached almost vertical with the needle, and I would guess I was going about 120-130 mph at the time. only specs I know of are 350 v8 with stock headers running through a cat to a flowmaster muffler and the piping is pretty thick if this would make any significant difference in speed?

    I had my 87's needle strait down. 85 is at about 4 o'clock so I'm guessing about 105ish. Stock 350TBI and stock everything. Mine's 4x4 but I had to slow down becuase I was in the wrong lane racing a friend and a curve was coming up.

    not sure how fast it is, but I can stand the needle straight up on my 74. probably around 120 or so. My engine is a little stronger than stock though. cam,intake,carb,head work.

    I know my Jimmy will cruise 90 mph down the freeway at only 2,800 rpms. Not sure of top speed though.
