700-HP Secret Revealed: 1972 Chevrolet Blazer Lowrider with Supercharged Engine

When low roll suffices, power becomes obsolete.

The majority of Chevrolet Blazers crafted from the original model are typically tough, tall, and well-suited for off-road adventures. However, a unique custom-made piece has taken a different approach: a lowrider modification.

Tony, the proprietor of the following illustration, recently changed the color of his car to a dazzling black with a touch of pearlescence, complemented by a white roof that boasts a unique rag top. In addition, Tony personally customized the 22-inch wheels, opting for a staggered arrangement with rear wheels measuring 22×12 inches and front wheels at 22×9.5 inches. The truck is also equipped with 265/30 tires in the front and 315/30 tires in the rear.

However, the rubber on this Blazer is practically worthless considering the engine it comes equipped with – which will be discussed in more detail later on.

In order to achieve a lowered appearance, the Blazer’s structure has undergone significant modifications, including the implementation of broader wheel arches. Additionally, a Porterbuilt suspension system equipped with AccuAir management allows for effortless adjustments to the vehicle’s ride height.

Modifications were made to the cabin as well. The height of the driver’s side was slightly increased, and the rear bench seat was shortened. Additionally, the transmission tunnel underwent a redesign.

The entire interior takes on a reddish tint, from the luxurious leather seats to the door panels, dashboard, and carpeting. The inclusion of a Dakota digital gauge cluster guarantees accurate monitoring of essential functions, while sliding rear windows serve to dispel any smoke arising from wild burnouts. And now, we come to the pièce de résistance of this project.

Beneath its exterior, this Blazer is equipped with a boosted LS2 V8 engine, mated to a T56 six-speed manual gearbox and a Currie nine-inch rear end. According to Tony, this combination generates approximately 600 horsepower at the wheels and 700 at the crank. While it may not pack the same punch as the Ringbrothers Blazer build, which boasts an incredible 1,200 hp, this project was designed for a different purpose – cruising at a lower speed. With 700 horsepower, it should have more than enough power to fulfill its intended use.

Additional enhancements to the vehicle’s performance have been made, such as the integration of Texas Speed’s Magic Stick camshafts, a Holley mid-mount auxiliary drive assembly, a tailor-made 3-inch exhaust complete with Borla mufflers, and an improved braking system courtesy of Arizona Pro Performance.

This impressive construction catches the eye in numerous ways and we admire the high standard it presents.
