Left Coast '32 - 2007 TrailBlazer SS

"Left Coast '32" - 2007 Chevrolet TrailBlazer SS

F-Quick Link to details of the build - http://www.fquick.com/garages/Chevro...SS/2007/14026/

We are currently building an LSX Block and LSX/LS3 6 Bolt Heads.

We will be running 18.5 psi of Boost from a custom TVS2300 and we will hit it with a 250 shop of Nitrous. We are shooting for between 1000 to 1250 Rear Wheel Horse Power on this new engine.

1000-1200 horsepower? Will that be streetable? How many gallons per mile will that be?

It is actually completely streetable. If I can take it easy on the go pedal then it actually gets pretty good mileage. The last engine was about 1000 at the crank and I could still get 16MPG on the freeway. The nice thing about the setup is that when not in boost you dont even know what it is able to do. The COG rear drive on the blower makes it sound like and old school blower.

Here are some videos with the last engine just playing around on the street a little. I have to roll into the throttle to maintain traction even with the big drag radials I have on it.

Re: Left Coast '32 - 2007 TrailBlazer SS

Wow - that thing is cool! Very nice build. Are you marketing those and are you just doing those or are you doing pickups as well? I'm guessing they pass the California smog, right? What is the rough price range for converting a vehicle to something like that?

Thanks! We build and sell all the parts that are on the TrailBlazer SS. I dont market any of the parts on here. I am on several other forums dedicated to the different platforms we build parts for.

We do have CA Smog legal kits but they are not at these power levels.

This has been a Project Development Vehicle since purchased in Jan '07.

This is a video of the LSX390 TVS2300. A friend put this video together for us. We are going to be running a couple more larger Superchargers on this engine real soon.
