I've got a real mild 355 with a Weiand 142 in my s-10...Here are some old pics but you get the idea...Runs mid 12's in FULL street trim...Keep in mind that this is with factory iron heads and a very small cam...

Some "hidden" costs involved that not many people mention...Plan on purchasing a blower calibrated carburetor unless you are a bonafide carb guru/megatuner...You will more than likely need to upgrade your fuel system to keep it fed at higher RPM...You will realize a GREAT improvement in performance with the blower by installing the largest headers/exhaust you can fit in the chassis with straight thru mufflers...The BTM is nice to have but make SURE you use some form of rev limiter - you WILL need it...You may need to upgrade your tranny for the torque levels you will be putting out and if an automatic will need a converter with a balloon plate...
