I just sold my big block 69 conv corvette and I am definitely buying a typhoon. it has been a dream since was a little boy to own one of those. going to pick it up next weekend, can't wait to test it. sorry for my poor English. are from Norway!!!
The TY is a pretty cool ride, but the new Trailblazer SS dominates
* 0-60 in 5.5 seconds and quarter mile in 14.1 sec with towing capacity of 6700lbs it not only looks mean, but it delivers in every way possible the TY was a good start, but the ls2 v-8 engine takes the cake.
I've always wanted a Typhoon and I am picking up a 93 Ty in 2 days. I currently own a supercharged Silverado SS so I looking forward to lining them up to see what one will be quicker.
The trailblazer may look mean, but that's the beauty of the Ty/Sy. Who expects someone in an "S10" V6 to blow the doors off of their souped up ricer? The Trailblazer SS is no doubt, sweet. But that mean sounds can give away a fast car anyday.
I just purchased a ty over the weekend. The vehicle has been in Japan since new, owned by a guy in the military. I live in Pgh, PA and drove down to Iowa to pick it up. The vehicle only has 36k and every aftermarket part that's available. I own a 05 Viper and the ty is just as fast. This is an awesome vehicle which was worth the trip.
The Trailblazer SS is in fact slower 0-60 and standing 1/4 mile than a stock Typhoon. Typhoon runs the 1/4 in 13.8-14.1 stock -- substantially quicker than the SS. The TBSS is a nice truck, but the Typhoon is in a class all by itself even by todays' standards. And it doesn't take much to turn up the wick and get gobs of HP and TRQ out of the turbocharged/liquid intercooled 4.3 V6. I own a 1992 Typhoon and wouldn't trade it for any other vehicle. I drive it daily and will continue to upgrade and repair it, hopefully driving it for many more years.
