    Chris,

    Did you leave early? I ended up putting on my street tires on all four corners for the last run. The Hoosiers are officially dead.

    You ever get your GC Sleeve unfrozen? I found my other perch if you want it... Paid $25 for it... Gimme $20 and its yours. Brand new.

    And I should have come to the AutoX... The highlight of the car show was when the kid came up to me and asked me if that was a Vortech Turbo I had... :blink: :unsure: :huh:

    Nah. I got one of those t-handled, ball ended allen wrenches, but it was too far gone. I'm going to drill out the head next. I may be interested in your perch, I'll let you know when I get around to doing something. Thanks. I definitely need to raise it back up for the winter. My bilsteins don't handle the current height very well.

    Since 1992 Chevrolet has included supercharger options for all of their S-10 lineup, including the 92 Blazer towing package (which offered the 4.7 V6, Vortec supercharger)

    Sorry.

    i'd like to see details of this... Because I'd love to find one for my 96 4.3 SCPI Blazer. :)

    VORTEC = Chevy Heads & intakes
    VORTECH = Superchargers

    UH! I've been Vtecked !

    Seriously I don't mean to name the Blower a "Vortec". Vortec was the engine maker. There are GM 4.3s and Vortec 4.3s. Just like Toyota 1.6s and Yamaha 1.6s. And GM 3.1s and McLaren 3.1s.

    I'll try to find some web info on them. I believe the Typhoons are Turbo, but I know that the 4.7 towing had a belt driven Eaton Roots on it.

    ummm... sorry B... they are 4.3 T... :)

    Both the Syclone and Typhoon utilize a 4.3L Turbocharged Vortec V6, pushing out 285+ HP (disputed to be 330) with 360ft/lbs of torque, with a liquid-cooled intercooler. A multiport fuel system feeds the motor while a TH700R4 automatic transmission puts power down to the AWD drivetrain. 0-60 times range from under 5 seconds (even in the rain!) to a quarter mile time of low/high 13's for the Syclone and mid 13's to low 14's for the Typhoon in stock form. The Syclone's ONLY production year was in 1991 with an estimated 2995 units built, while the Typhoon lasted from 1992-93 with 2500 units built in 92 and 2200 units built in 93. Both trucks feature a specialized ground effects package (known as cladding) and turbine style 16x8 aluminum rims. The Syclone's interior features plush cloth bucket seats with the "Syclone" badge embroidered into the headrest, along with door inserts to match while the 92 Typhoon's feature leather/cloth seats with headrest "Typhoon"embroidery and the 93 features full leather interior with power seats and overhead console. The trucks feature center console holds the leather shifter while a gauge cluster from a Sunbird GT keeps you informed of engine vitals and boost.
