Well, the easiest thing to do is do a search on the forums for PCM TRAY. Wink



Since your fairly new,... ones for a Blazer fits perfectly in that location. 15995679

The Blazer PCM tray should run you about 20 bucks at the dealer. Money well spent IMO to avoid having your PCM zip-tied to the unibody.

I'm not sure, I stopped looking into it after I realized my K&N FIPK had a PCM tray included. Either way, 20 bucks for the Blazer PCM try is better than spending 35+shipping for one from ZZP.

most store bought CAI's do, I know the Thrasher did. Just looked at the OP's pic, what intake is that? Definitely not a cold air intake

Looks to me like the OP got some tubing from Autozone. I probably should have done the same thing instead of plunking down too much money for the K&N kit, but I was ignorant when I bought it. Laughing

Well, I would have also, but since I showed the car all the time, Thrasher was the only choice for me. (other CAI's didnt exist when I bought the Thrasher)

You'll notice an even better increase if you get a better one so your getting ambient temperature air instead of 200 degree air. Every ten degree difference in air temperature can equal close to -1 hp.
