How difficult is it to replace the Fuel Pressure Regulator on 99 5.7L?

1999-2006 & 2007-2013 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500 Today, 01:59 AM
The Factory Service Manual says to remove the "upper manifold assembly".  I *think* that means the intake manifold is in two parts.  Roughly how long should I expect it to take to remove the upper manifold?  I believe the FPR is inside the manifold... right?  And, while I'm at it, should I replace the spider injectors?

Silverado bad 1-2 shift

Gen III and IV Small Block & Drivetrain Today, 12:18 AM
I have an 06 silverado vortec max. Under wide open throttle, the shift between 1 and 2 is not like it should be. I'm not exactly sure how to describe it, but it's almost as if it tries to shift but it takes it about a half second. The rpms come down to about 4 grand when it shifts and then it revs up a few hundred rpms past that and then I can feel it finally complete the shift and it gets pulled back down to about 4 grand. All under wide open throttle. It should be a quick firm shift but it is definitely not

Windham Weaponry?

Guns, Firearms, & Hunting Yesterday, 11:06 PM
I am looking to get an AR style rifle in the near future. I was at Academy just looking around and came across Windham Weaponry.   From my quick searching it looks like Windham Weaponry is basically Bushmaster of old. How are these compared to the other major manufacturers (DPMS, Colt, S&W)?   I would add some other accessories and a quad rail.   I don't know if I should build my own or buy one and just add stuff? I don't want to spend a ton, just have a little project.

Possibly getting into a 2015 Sierra with the 6.2 and the 8 speed transmission.  The dealer didn't have any I could test drive and wondering if anyone on here had picked one up yet.  Checking to see how you liked it, especially if you've had a 6 speed Sierra/Silverado prior to the 8 speed.   Take care guys!

What are you guys paying?

2015 Chevrolet Suburban/Tahoe, GMC Yukon, & Cadillac Escalade 26 May 2014
Well guys, my girlfriend & I are getting ready to purchase a new '15 Tahoe LTZ fully loaded or a Yukon SLT fully loaded. She likes the Tahoe better & I like the Yukon better. But overall, she said doesn't matter as long as we get the best deal on one. We test drove a Tahoe today, its very nice. Roomy, very good road manners, comfortable, and really do like the looks of it. They're wanting $65K. We will be paying cash for one and just wondering what you guys are paying? Plus we both decided on getting black. Thanks! Sent from my SCH-I545 using Tapatalk

Exhaust with no drone?

Gen V Small Block Engine, Drivetrain, & Exhaust Yesterday, 02:04 PM
So I have a 2014 sierra rcsb and from what I understand here is that if you remove the flapper valve and the 3rd muffler you will hear drone and the v4 helicopter noise. I am looking for a performance sounding exhaust that will not drone. I also have a 2008 gmc with the 5.3 and it has a magnaflow cat back. The drone is absolutely awful. It had a flowmaster on it before but rusted out. However I think that sounded alot better.   Anyway searching around on youtube I love "kinney's" true dual flowmaster but I bet there would be drone noise with that cruising around.   All I'm after is a relatively stock performance sounding exhaust. Kinda as if you wouldnt know there is an exhaust system on it until you really romp on it but when you do you think "oh my.. this truck has some performance to it!"   Anyone think theyve got an answer for me? I'm going to bet corsa is what I'm looking for

2.5inch level with 305/55R20 tires

2014/2015 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500 10 Sep 2014
Hey, I'm new to this site. Just put a 2.5inch RC leveling kit in my 2014 silverado 4x4. I really want to get 305/55r20 Nitro trail grapplers on some 20x9 rims +18 offset. I'm wondering if anyone has this setup and what kind of rubbing issues you have if any. I'd love to see some pics or even suggestions on the next tire size down that would fit if the 305s don't. Any help or suggestions would be great. Thanks guys
