Let’s build a monster street truck now was what the weird robotic voice cried as this 2001 Xtreme Blazer LS1 owned by Louis Suvoy of Michigan fired to life for the first time. Suvoy began with an ordinary 4.3L 2001 Xtreme Blazer, he tossed the 4.3 in favor of an LS1 which was pulled from a 98 Camaro Z28.
The engine was rebuilt with a thunder racing 224/224-112 cam, cylinder heads with ported exhaust, a ported throttle body, a 85 mm SLP mass air flow and FAST fuel rails.
The motor exhales through a full 2.5 inch dual exhaust with no cats and Flowmaster super 44 mufflers. The motor is tied to a 4L60E which has been rebuilt with a monster transmission kit 2500 stall converter. Out back is a 8.5 rear end. To help the SUV stop Hawk HPS pads as well as drilled and slotted rotors front and rear where installed.Suvoy races the Blazer frequently on both the street and at the strip where it makes an effective sleeper. He can hit 60 mpg in 4.8 seconds and run the quarter-mile in 13.105 @ 105.39 mph. He raced it when what looks to be a legal street race (street blocked off, crowed behind barriers and for some reason Lincoln doing the arm drops?) where his Blazer took down a Mercedes and a tuner Nissan S15. At Milan he even gave an SRT4 a run for it’s money and kept up with a gutted interior Fox Body Mustang GT.
LSX powered dimes make some of the coolest sleepers as few would expect those light trucks or compact SUV’s to have that kind of power.
