    Ever have that truck at the track rel3rd?

    We are having a local club track day in a few weeks. I'm thinking of taking the blazer down for a few passes. It'll be 110 outside so I don't expect to set records but I think it's going to surprise a few.

    I went to a private track rental 2 years ago, with the 33x12.50x16.5 Weld's to run my son in his bolt-on 1991 automatic 5.0 Mustang hatchback. It rained on the way there, so the first few hours they only ran 1/8th mile. He had a blown posi and I launched in 4 HI and whooped him 2 or 3 times, LMAO. It went like 10.0, but no idea what MPH. That should roundabout a 15 second 1/4 mile with the taller heavy tires, so I'd guess it would do a high 14 or so now....strictly theorizing of course.

    That's funny I run 33's on mine as well. Just seat of the pants guessing, it feels much like you feel yours should be running. I'm thinking it will be somewhere in the 14's.

It's my daily driver/work beater, but runs very strong. My "winter blended gas" mileage is/was about the same as yours. My truck is also lowered. It's a Z71 4wd but has 2" drop spindles in the front, rear block removed, and 2" lowering shackles. Basically sits like a stock, or VERY mild lowered 2wd.

    FWIW, the electric fan conversion and lowering did absolutely nothing for MPG's.

    Here's my homemade 4" CAI kit...VERY cheap, but not possible without the LS1 fans.

    and modded stock airbox:

    My truck's had quite a few different looks since I have had it...lol

    Bone stock as I bought it: http://www.fquick.com/images/vehicle...1203355968.jpg
    About a week later: http://www.fquick.com/images/vehicle...1203355967.jpg
    With chrome factory 17's and tires too short: http://www.fquick.com/images/vehicle...1203346266.jpg

    Same but with factory flares: http://www.fquick.com/images/vehicle...1203279505.jpg

    Lowered with chrome 20's and candied stock taillights: http://www.fquick.com/images/vehicle...1203355966.jpg

    and for some unknown reason...no current pic aside from the small sig pic.

    sorry, I was bored...lol
    Sweet truck man! Its basically the same thing as mine just a different color so I really enjoyed all the different looks you've shared. And thanks for the response. I still have a set of LS1 fans sitting in the garage waiting for me to install them. I was kinda hoping those would bump up the mileage but sounds like it might not. But when I put the fans in I just might steal your homemade CAI idea.

    Despite 5.0THIS's disapproval here's my truck on Escalade 22s:

    My son didn't think it was too funny. LMAO!!! He had the dreaded "one wheel peel" all day.

    Truck looks clean man. Nice job. Assuming you plan to use a Nelson or BlackBear fan harness, I'd be glad to share my fan settings with you. It's never come anywhere close to overheating, and the AC works more efficiently as well, since the fans automatically both come on HIGH when AC is on. I also have my AC compressor kick off MUCH sooner than stock if accelerating....p.s. The 4" cold air was very simple. You need a 3.5" to 4" adapter on airbox end, and a 4" 90* elbow on the TB end. I used a 4" straight exhaust pipe, 12" long and painted it silver metallic to not get heatsoaked.

    I don't know if you can tell, but there's another small trick there as well.

    Take the stock upper radiator hose and simply "reverse" it. It really cleans up the front of the engine, and the hose won't be flopping around in mid air like it would be if you left it alone.

    They're not a bad 22 inch wheel (better than aftermarket shit), just too big IMO. Just looks a bit strange, of course you are a bit strange, so maybe it works

    Yep I was planning on the Nelson harness. This sounds like a great little project. I'm gonna start gathering up the stuff I need and would glad to check out your fan settings. PM the info when you get a chance. Also, nice trick with flipping the upper hose!!

    It would look better if the truck was leveled IMO.

    I like those wheels. Useless off roading but nice for the road.

    Hmmm...that is a weird pic. The truck is actually pretty much level. The front sits way higher then most of the trucks and Tahoe SUVs I see. The front is higher then my buddy's 04 2500HD Duramax...he had to crank up the torsion bars match mine. That pic just looks weird.

    Cutlass, I just noticed looking at the pic of your truck again... the Z71 decal. Either someone put a new one on the truck, or it was drunk monkey friday at the factory when they were installing that one.

    Mine were in the same exact location (before I removed them, of course) and I know mine has never been repainted or drunk-monkeyed, lol.

    I dont drink, so not drunk. Go look at pictures of where those stickers are on other trucks on google or something. They're all closer to the taillight, and level with the body crease below it. I've noticed some a bit off level like yours, but never that far away from the light. It's definitely off, especially considering they typically use a template at the factory when installing badges and stickers.

    My bad. I thought you guys were referring to the height of the decal and the off kilter, not the closeness to the taillight. Mine appears to have the same lopsidedness though, lol.

    Yep you're correct. Good eye. It looks like the passenger bed side has been repainted. I think the Z71 stickers on both sides were replaced but I'm not positive. Both are 3/8" off level with the body crease. The Passenger side is 1/2" closer to the body crease then the other and 7/8" farther away from the tail light then the drivers side.
    Oh well it doesn't really both me too much. Its just a truck and my honeymoon with it was already over months ago.

    I'm just picturing you out there with a tape measure going "goddamn that 50this fucker!"




    Sorry man, I only mentioned it because I figured you had already seen it. I liked it better when it was just some drunk UAW person putting on decals that day. Or maybe it was "take your kid to work" day. On the flip side, when I was out driving around today I was looking at every 99-06 I saw to see where the damn decal was
