    First of all thanks for any help anyone can provide....

    Has anyone installed a Edelbrock Performer 600cfm onto a 85 5.7 blazer (or similar)? Im trying to determine what steps will need to be taken to get one on their and what kits (Hard 2 rubber fuel line conversion) or if a intake manifold is needed? Any help on this would be appreciated...

    Also is a smog pump delete a good option(& howto) on this truck? I do not have emissions checking in my county..

    Removing emissions on a good running vehicle (the carb for that matter) is an invitation for problems that didn't exist before.

    Just an FYI. If it's got problems now, different story. Any of the delete/underdrive pulleys are worthless unless you are racing against a clock.
