Snorkel removal - 94 Blazer, Gutted upper plenim.

I couldn't wait any longer and had to start doing some mods to the Blazer and what good is a simple description without pics, right?

Here i removed the snorkel from the fender and permanently "borrowed" the upper plenim off my 95. (i'm selling it anyways).

Feel free to use the snorkel pics and such in a "how to thread" if you like.

One more pic to add as it wouldn't fit in the previous post. This one is looking from the front of the snorkel to show how restricted these things really are.

I've also blocked of the EGR, sorry no pics (DOH!!! on my part).

All i did was used two EGR gaskets and sandwiched between them a very thin piece of sheet metal cut the same size as the EGR gaskets with the bolt holes, maybe my EGR codes will go away now.... lol

Thanks for the great picks!!!!

I dug into mine today too, to thread a new battery cable to the starter and ECM. Thought I would go ahead and dig out the snorkle, but there was none. I have a friend lined up to mill the upper intake as soon as I get the battery cable problem solved. Yours looks a little greasier from the PCV than mine did. I previously pulled the upper intake to clean it and had about 1/8-1/4 soot cake, not close to being blocked like some other I'v seen.

Um.... no i didn't, it looked fairly clean to me, i should have taken the 2 minutes to check it also. All the battery connections were the cleanest of any i've seen.

Are you taking the snorkel out and gutting it out, putting it back in? How did you gut out the web casting like that? Thanks.

I used a cutting bit in my Dremel, WARNING! Safety glasses required for that operation and some damn steady hands, the dremel tends to like to go where it wants while cutting aluminium! (that was the old one from my 95, i just swapped them out so i woudn't have to cut a second one)

Russel, are you a little concerned about the oil all over the compressor side of the turbo? Looks like its all coming from the CDR, how much blow-by does she have?
