nobody makes one, but you could always have a custom one made.

i know that whipple won't even make you one. i e-mailed them and tried to sweet talk 'em as much as i could for the customer service person to possibly put me through to a higher authority. but they didn't even respond to my reply so TRuck them. i don't know about you guys, but if a 4.2 supercharger was as much as $7k, i'd definately get one. the only reason whipple doesn't make one is because of LACK OF DEMAND. they don't come here and see all of us whining about superchargers so they won't make one. anybody that has connections to whipple superchargers needs to put in as many "demands" for 4.2 I6 superchargers as humanly possible. i mean, how many trailblazers do you guys see in your local areas (especially big cities)? there must be at least 3 trailblazers for every suburban or tahoe. people would definately buy them if they were available and advertised well.

With I-6 tuning support from EFILive and HP Tuners coming soon, I think you will see more forced induction support. But you probably won't see the support coming from the big market players... I think it'll come more from custom fabricators.

i found somethin'. a centrifugal supercharger KIT. fit's the blazer, trailblazer, S10, and colorado. now, my only problem is that it's a centrifugal supercharger and says it's made for WOT use. i'm never on WOT unless i'm positive there are no cops around and because i'm afraid i'm gonna burn up the motor/transmission. which reminds me, is it possible to burn up the 4.2? there's no redline on the rpm gauge.

how could it fit a blazer/S10 and a TB/Colorado? If I remember the old V6 4300 the throttle body was towards the front of the engine facing forwards. seems like the plumbing would be quite different

I am with jimmyjam, the kit would have to vary with the plumbing for the I6, 4.3 and the I5. Plus why would anyone build a forced induction kit and state it is not made for WOT. Kinda defeats the purpose of having one in some cases.

Yea, sorry but I highly doubt it would fit the 4.3L V6 (S10/Blazer) and the 4.2L I6. I could understand if they said it fit the Colorado/Canyon with the 2.8L I4 or 3.5L I5 as well as the 4.2L I6 we have in the TB/Voy, but not the 4.3L V6. Completely different intake setups (I think they are actually on opposite sides of the engine bay. )

He probably found the inline-5 supercharger, saw "inline" and thought it was for ours too.
