I had a 99 s-10 4.3,with a 3.43 open diff.
If I floored it from a dead stop without power breaking, it would spin the right tire all the way through 2nd gear.This is with a automatic tranny.I miss that truck.Just a flowmaster muffler and a K&N filter.

Shure!!! Just take it to fagg land Europe (Spain, Sweeden) some other places in the world where they make 1,000 dollars a year and it would be one hot rod you can't touch!!

I will throw the flag on this one. I saw an article on supercharging a V6 Vortec in an Sport Truck magazine and you would for sure have to have the computer tuned. The guy made less horsepower after he supercharged it than before he did. You would have to have the computer tuned. And if you are going to say that you did have it tuned, then why would you leave the top speed limiter. Also, 12psi on stock internals. Those motors are not that stable.

I can assure you that my computer is completely stock. I have owned the truck since new. The only modification to the fuel system is the fmu the supercharger kit came with. If i can find the time slip from the track i will scan it and give you a link to it. truck would make better time but speed is limited at 98mph. prob only get a couple tenths at most by removing speed limiter. Also with the 12psi pulley i can only make 10psi and i am not going any higher. Stock pistons can overheat and start to melt with much more. Newer vortec heads are thinner and pron To cracking also. the methanol injection kit stopped all of the knock so computer wont pull back timing causing power loss.the link below is a pic of the engine compartment, little tight cant see much. pic was before methanol kit and external blowoff valve.

I do not feel like reading all of this, but I will say that not ones stock S10 or Sonoma (not including the Syclone or Typhoon) can out run a Dodge Dakota with the same type of powertrain. The only reason that the Syclone or Typhoon is fast is because of the AWD. I would love to have one, but would rather have it with a 5-speed RWD combination. I have out ran many of S10s and Sonomas with V6s. The 4cylinders are a joke. I can even out run full-size Chevrolets from a roll, but from a dead stop it is different because they do not spin at all. Not really a fair race.

I have never lost a race to any stock S10 or Sonoma, whether it be an automatic or a 5speed. The automatics are probably quicker because of the 5speeds being harder to launch. I want to see a slip of this stock S10 running 16.4.

go to this link, I know its not the pickup but the heavier weight of the blazer is where the extra couple tenths come from.

With descent tires and gears a Syclone or Typhoon would still be very fast, easily smoking any 3.9 and most R/Ts. It's matter of weight to hp/tq. They easily put out 280 hp and some source say they were capable of over 300 hp.

I see no reason a supercharged 4.3 vortec shouldn't perform well with the stock computer. The powerdyne comes with a fmu but no chip. At ten pounds, if you are really getting ten pounds, you need to get it chipped. I think one kit recommends an msd btm for boost over 6-8 lbs.

The s10 is too small for my taste but the 4.3 is still an excellent engine. If you can't make a chevy or ford go you probably can't make a dodge go either.

I like how one person said that with decent tires and gears they would run good. So would anything with that much power. Same with my truck, I suck off the line because of the fact that I spin way worse. If I had a turbocharger, an AWD setup, and was light weight I could own a lot of things too. I have seen stock Syclones launch off the line. They can sit there and have the turbo spooled up and when they go they are at full boost and do not spin. I am not knocking the Syclones (I do not like the Typhoones because of the fact that I do not like Blazers) the Syclones are an amazing truck for it's day. But, I would like to see a Syclone try to launch off the line with a 5speed and a RWD configuration. Oh and non-posi. It would be a tough feat. That is how my truck is. That is like the people who take R/Ts and make them 5speeds. They are hard to launch, but are they so much fun. I want one.

I saw some guy at the track last summer with a brand new ram srt10. when he left the line he was spinning and started to get sideways. I dont know about you but if i just bought a $60000 truck and it swung out like that i might get out of the throttle. But no this jerkoff stayed in it. I was hoping he put it into the wall just for being an idiot.

Sy/Ty made over 300hp and would smoke any R/T in stock form they ran mid 13's to very low 14's never underestimate those trucks.
