    I would say 10-15K depending on mileage and condition.

    I would recommend going to www.syty.net.

    I have a 1992 GMC Typhoon that is coming out of the shop in few days.

    Good luck.

    I wouldn't recommend them as far for reliability issue. If you are mechanically inclined and have time work on them in the weekends. Go for it. They just need lots of tender loving car.

    However, I would advise against it since I saw your pic of the blazer and saw all the snow in the backgroud. I wouldn't drive them in snow, thats mean!

    If you want more power. I doubt you want to turbo your blazer. Why not put something more reliable like 350 V8?

    well, you gotta decide what you want to do with the car. If you wanted to do offroading. Don't get Typhoon or Syclone. If you wanted cheap reliable car. Don't get Typhoon or Syclone! Well, as for more power, there is always a price for it. Why not get a full size Chevy Blazer? Yeah, it will have lousy gas milage, but you get more power. Good Luck

    I think the easiest thing would be to get a supercharger for the blazer you get. The next option would be a V8 swap, not as easy but doable.

    the v8 small block swap really isnt that hard to do
    i just takes time. theres not alot of prep work to make it fit
    there alot of companys out there that make products to make it easier and better

    get the jtr book, it tells u everything

    I've got a Ty. Like Boostn said, SyTy's are not the most reliable. But some are and some aren't. It all depends on how you drive and how you maintain it. Also, how the previous owner has driven it and maintained it. Mine is my daily driver, and I do regular oil changes (every 2K miles mobil 1 only) and all the other required maintence and i don't get any major problems.

    Also if your looking into adding forced induction to your 4.3, check out www.tobefast.com . Jerry McCoy is working on a complete setup.
