I want to install an underhood air horn kit on my '88 S10 Blazer, like
the Hadley Bully. The kit includes a small compressor and air tank in
addition to the dual horn setup. Has anyone installed a kit like this on
an S10 Blazer, and maybe have some pictures or description of where you
located the components? It looks really tight under the hood, and I
don't want to buy the kit if it isn't likely to fit. Thanks for any
Probably none of my business, unless you honked it at me of course,
but why would you want one of these? I can't think of few things that
get yer ass kicked quicker if you had a penchant for using it.

1. I drive an 89 S-10, and I can tell you.NO ONE hears the horns on
those trucks. Not only are they quiet, they have a low trumpet-mute
sound. I drive for a living, and I could have avoided many a
"close-call" if other drivers could have heard my horn. Contemporary
cars and sound systems are making the road more hazardous for quiet
If it wasn't for the remote mount oil filter, I would have installed
the twin horns that I salvaged from my old Delta 88, but they won't
2. In high school I had a friend install an air horn in his S-10, but
it was the I-4 2WD, lots more room under the hood. The funny thing is
with the airhorns he bought, he got a sound like someone stepped on a
cat, not the deep blaring of the semis. It was worse than nails on the
chalkboard, but you couldn't miss it.
It's in the compressor size and the horn that give it the sound,
nothing funny about it. Remember that semi's use air for braking, so
they have some rather robust pumps :-) The ones you buy and pepboys
and vip will be the same way shrill but loud. I wouldn't mind snaggin
all I need to make my K5 sound like a semi...
I have a 75watt power horn mounted to the inner left fender in my
4banger S10, I have it hooked up to a CB. If my CB hadn't crapped out
I would have used it to take out my agressions on all the morons that
don't give me the right of way :0)
