As GM Authority covered previously, Lingenfelter’s new Chevy Blazer supercharger kit is available for models equipped with the 3.6L V6 LGX gasoline engine, and features Edelbrock’s TVS R1740 blower. To note, the R1740 is the same rotor package used for GM’s supercharged 6.2L V8 LT4 gasoline engine.
Now, we also know that Lingenfelter’s Chevy Blazer supercharger kit will include a high-efficiency intercooler with a 1.75-gallon aluminum reservoir tank, while the blower will rock a black powder-coated finish.
Based on an OEM Eaton supercharger unit, the new Chevy Blazer blower kit will be 50-state emission compliant, and comes with professional installation, testing, and PCM calibration to ensure smooth operation. The package also comes with a warranty on the supercharger assembly, chassis dyno testing (both before and after installation), and an official Lingenfelter certificate of authenticity.
As for the power gains, expect a little over 100 extra wheel horsepower. Final figures are still on the way.
“In a car of that size, 100 horsepower makes a huge difference,” said Lingenfelter’s Mark Rapson in recent interview with GM Authority.
The Chevy Blazer featured in the photos seen in this article show to the very first development model, which has been sold and is now used as a daily driver. Lingenfelter expects the first production units of the new blower kit to roll out in April.
As a reminder, the 2021 Chevy Blazer is offered with three engine options from the factory, including the naturally aspirated 2.5L I4 LCV, which produces 193 horsepower, the turbocharged 2.0L I4 LSY, which produces 227 horsepower, and the 3.6L V6 LGX, which produces 308 horsepower. The new Lingenfelter blower kit will only be available for Chevy Blazer models equipped with the 3.6L V6 LGX.
