Looking nice man. It's rare to see a Suburban/Tahoe/Escalade/etc that's not bling blinged now :\

Yea looking at GMC's site the smallest v8 ranges from 200-290hp but id put it somewhere close to 250+ or so since this thing can pull a burnout pretty easily. But then again im not what youd call very experienced with this stuff.

I kow that my dad's '95 Sierra has 200 Hp and 270 ft./lbs. of torque out of a 350...so this '88 most likely has no more than that. hence my guess of 190.

Well, I just found a site that said the 88 to 91 5.7 liter suburbans had 210 HP and 300 ft./lbs. of torque. But it was French, so i'm not too sure. tongue.gif

It's probably the same here. I'd be surprised if that thing had less than 200hp
But like somebody else said, get rid of the running boards and mud flaps and your truck will look much nicer

Yea i guess what clarkma5 said sounds like it could be accurate. Never really thought about removing the runningboards and mudflaps but ill go try it and see how it looks, hopefully theres no huge rust spots being covered by them.
