probably has a 4.3 maybe some headers (if they even make them, prob do) and dual exhaust, and a k n filter, are always a good start to gaining a little more hp.

Well the good news is that you have the right car for mods. Theres lots of things you can do to those cars. Like 99Integra stated, a supercharger would be a nice mod, as well as a higher flowing air intake with some headers, and a good exhaust system.

As for exterior mods, I would start with some good rims and tires. Nothing to gawdy and large, just a nice 18" or so with some BF Goodrich g-Force tires.

Tirerack
The Tire Rack always has a nice selection of rims and tires. Check out the Zinik Z1 Shogun rims. They would look great on your Blazer.

lol it's an Xtreme. Very low. Very Street. I wouldn't reccomend going too crazy with a hi-boost supercharger or huge wheels/tires because I hear the fuel economy on a 4.3L Blazer sucks. GL .

I really think that the Extreme Blazers have lots of potential, so you certainly have plenty you can do. Probly do a supercharger, new exhaust, and go from there.

I'd watch out on supercharging and such. It seems like your vehicle is already supporting Al Quida, haha, stock it already guzzles gas.

Good luck with your mods.
