Vehicle Overview

I have owned my K5 Blazer since I was 19 years old, when I used it to deliver pizza. Gas was much cheaper back then. ;-) It has not run in over 30 years, but I am committed to getting it back on the road by Spring of 2021. It has a mildly built 350 with generic RV cam and Holley 4 barrel. The transmission is a TH350 and the axles have 3.73 gear ratios.

Future Plans

I have a 400 SBC short block and modified cast iron chevy 76cc heads. I will add a modern performance cam, a modern performance dual plane intake manifold, and Sniper EFI to round out the new engine, which I plan to put in this winter. I may switch to aluminum heads. I plan to keep the funky, era-appropriate turbine wheels.
