unless ur modded out you'll lose. my buddy had a 99 4.8 auto. it was stock and could beat stock 5.7's. he traded it in on a 2002 5.3 z71. hes never raced in it but its got a ton of power.

Friend of mine has a '99 5.3 auto, I can take him to 45, then the two extra cylinders kill me off... Make sure you're modded before you go at the 4.8, it's only .5 more liters (look i can subtract!) but the V8, ouch.....!

sonoma get it, just make sure you've got a good enough cooling system-- the turbos will definately make some heat... get a good intercooler and you'll be fine--- and $1k is a deal

Hey you guys are talking about turbo charging your 4.3L. Any buddy know if the exhaust off of a syclone or typhoon will work on a new model truck like a 1996 s10 blazer 4x4. I have been looking into it and i really dont know where to start .
