Playstations 2 and 3.

Technology, Devices, & Gaming Today, 08:21 PM
I was just thinking about my ps2 and ps3. My opinion is that ps2 games are better than ps3, but the ps3 CECHA01 (60 gb) is a better unit than the ps2, because of the 4 USB ports, the super cd function, backwards compatible with emotion chip, the ps3 cecha01 plays ps1,2,3 games, along with super cd's, bluray, dvds. I love the cecha01 because if you jailbreak it on a 3.55 firmware you can upgrade your internal hard drive to a 1TB and save all your old favorite games right to your console! No more missing or scratched disks. What do you guys think about the ps2 vs ps3?

Rear leaf springs noise

2014/2015 Silverado & Sierra Issues, Troubleshooting, & Recalls/Service Bulletins 26 Nov 2014
I know this has been a topic a few times. Ive read the posts I found through search. Was curious if anyone has replaced the springs with GMC parts and if so, was the problem corrected? What I'm trying to find out basically is if I order a new set of springs from GMC for my truck based on VIN will I get a set that possibly has the same issue or if there was any actual type of change in the springs to correct the noise and as such the new springs would be updated? The dealer will not do anything through warranty because of the lift. I don't mind buying a new set as long as I know they are somehow different in some way from the ones I have. Figured maybe someone knows if there was a part number change or a TSB on this. Anything really would help. The dealer service dept. is fairly useless and I've leaved over time that things like this I usually have to correct myself. The cost isn't the issue but rather getting the right parts if in fact that is what was causing the condition. Any info would be appreciated. Otherwise I'll probably buy them and see what happens and post results. The squeak is so bad now that opt to drive my 99 Tacoma instead of the sierra any time I can to avoid the aggravation.  I know, that's sad but it rea...

Question about Max Trailer (NHT) option

2014/2015 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500 16 Dec 2014
I'm interested in custom ordering a GMC with the NHT option but I'm a little confused. On the Chevy Silverado website, it shows that the NHT option increased max payload by 400 lbs.    http://www.chevrolet...pabilities.html   On the GMC Sierra website it shows the NHT only upping GVWR and Towing capacity, but not payload.   http://www.gmc.com/s...cs/options.html   Can anyone with the NHT option on a 2014-2015 Sierra confirm that they got a 400 lb increase in payload? I want to tow a trailer with a  ATV in the bed, so payload is really important to me.    Thanks

New Silverado No throttle responce, bad gas milage, clunky transmissio

2014/2015 Silverado & Sierra Issues, Troubleshooting, & Recalls/Service Bulletins 27 Nov 2014
Bought a new 2014 Silverado last month, double cab, z71 5.3. Been a gm truck owner since I was 16.   I have 1500 miles on it now. I did test drive a bit, but didn't realize these issues at the time. Heres my issues with it.   It is completely gutless, throttle response is non existent, unless you really get on it, and then its too much. Feels like im pulling a boat anchor everywhere I go.   Crappy mileage, Best mileage I have gotten was 17.4 mpg on a tank, and that was 90% highway and interstate. Hand calculated and on the dash. Yes its a truck I didnt buy it for fuel mileage, but when they advertise something it should at least get close to that. I do realize its winter blend fuel right now. Im averaging 13mpg right now.   My 05 I had 8 years got 17.5 Every tank with mixed driving!!!     Lastly, is the clunky transmission and always seems to be in the wrong gear, lugs, Hard 1-2 and 2-1 shifts.   Do these seem like computer related issues? Im bummed I cant even enjoy my new truck. Any input or similar issues?

Who would get the V6 instead of the V8 if the MPG were better?

2014/2015 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500 02 Dec 2014
At the current time the V6 and the V8’s get about the same miles per gallon +/- a few miles difference.  If you didn’t need the power (towing etc.) of a V8 and didn’t care about the bragging rights of horsepower etc., how many "more"  people would get the V6 INSTEAD OF THE V8 if the miles per gallon were better (with no changes to the current horsepower on each engine)?  If so, how many more miles to the gallon (within reason) would be needed for you to get the V6 instead of the V8?  Does the MPG matter at all when it comes to your truck?
