Yeah the issue is "done" it is tuned very well and even pulled a few 12.4psi days. However this new platform is insane. The newer truck allow for so many extra tuning options. And it is had to say it we are getting everything out of it. I believe I am NOT getting its all. I have some close friends and family that own the largest OEM company's and work on the board at GM . So last week I emailed them. And have a appointment to get it looked at. I'm told 600rwhp is fine. On stock block. So we will see. Stainless vortex cone came in and I hammered it up the tip. Don't notice a sound difference but need to get it up to temp and see how it is. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
Well the body shop had a listing through Rockwell. But I don't believe GM ever made one. It is for 2014+ all in all it was $400 shipped. Body shop said like $1100-$1300 bumper, $220 plastic upper, + side steps, +sensor mounts,+$470 for paint, and the computer said install requires the bed to be lifted up to get to bolts. Believe it or not the company offers it for $414 shipped and free pro paint matched to you code color. Insane.
****NO CORNER STEPS****New bumper is here. For the price I also ordered new sensors. The paint cost on the. Crimson tintcoat is so high I want all done now. Bill was around $2700. Thinking about getting my extra tail gate handle painted... Snowing here so exhaust mod needs to wait. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
Yes there was tests years ago of a composite bed. Much like the rear bed fenders but much thicker. Works well but the issue is repair/replacement cost. Whole fiberglass/composite/carbon beds are about 13 year old news. Oh and also in the news who wants to see a rear engine corvette? Was designed in the early 90s for the c5. I have seen the original engine photo of the design. That is how long ideas take.
Yes like anything new it is more difficult and costly. I have called 6 performance shops in my area and all said hell no. they will not tune or dyno truck. I'm great at the old LS tuning but this new stuff is a curve. I real good and old friend has offered to teach me everything. So I will bit the bullet and learn for myself. Need it for the race car anyways. And he is the best there is so worth it anyways. UPDATE*** Learned how to data log boost so I need to log that and adjust the SCG-1. Nice boost controller but hell to program. Ordered (again) rear bumper with NO STEPS and new sensors. Body shop will repaint it soon. Ordered a Vortech 3.5" cone insert. Will install it at the down tube at the fire wall. Recall on the SES system but dealer whats my truck to check it over and then order the part. Such BS. So I will just have the part mailed to me and F*ck the dealer. I can plug in the module myself. Side note tuning at 12.4psi and holding...... As far as those values it is about right but I was speaking of the base line inlet pressure it is under 90 and I see people maxing it out at 118.4. Once I can afford (have new engine ready to go ) to MAX up this setup I will push it but for now I have to live at under 600rwhp.
It is the stock motor now and some act of god it is holding. Even at 10psi. Fuel is holding out also still haven't raised the base line fuel or even tps at wot is still at 83%. There is a fuel cut off just before shift that is causing the fail safe in the boost controller to cut boost. So it falls on its face with cutting 100% boost at shift and starting back again building in every gear. I can change any boost setting in LM programming but the concern is going lean at 5800rpm. And that is why I am working on getting the replacement engine going. That and even with more fuel the rods will never stay around over 600rwhp. I'm starting my drag car build in 60 days so need the truck done. That is a LSX single turbo 1500hp. It will be class car but thinking we may just grudge it.
Ordered a exhaust augur insert. Cheap easy insert. See what happens. However the afm and dod delete will address the worst of the exhaust issues. My damage bumper is still not fixed. Shop said new bumper with paint is over $2000 parts alone are almost 2k and paint is $470. Ugh.... called insurance and waiting. Blew the turbo clamp so ordered a smaller one. Trying to set up voice commands in truck. Set up 3 years free on star. But it links automatically to my GMC and it says get truck to dealer for service and recall. Recall is a replacement SES module. And check or fix under seat airbag wire. Need wiring info to Finnish cargo/rear light and fog/parking light mod oh and ambient light wire for console lights. Working on new motor with cam or just a LT1 long block. Don't know what that can handle but sure it is over 625rwhp. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
1SLOW1500 replied to Spurshot's topic in 2014 / 2015 / 2016 / 2017 / 2018 Silverado & Sierra Accessories & ModificationsSo I didn't read all ht e pages but that is the mods for a 2016 sierra I want fog with parking lights. cargo with reverse Oh and if any one knows the bcm ambient light. Thank you
Sorry but I'm lost. The link just brings me back to this thread. I have a 2016 sierra The post I read state brown BCM plug #10 fog light to #22 parking lights parking lights also green plug BCM #22 green/grey wire. As far as HI, low and fogs.... the diode to parking will address this. Thank you
As one of my friends said, "sounds like a Lion being ass f**ked by a gorilla I love it" Still too loud for me so a Dynatech vortex 3.5" cone and a tip are in order. Worst case I will see if I can add a second 3.5" Dynomax bullet muffler. But for now back to tuning.... Need max boost. And yes looking at fuel upgrade options, friends at GM and GM development have some new options. I am told 510rwhp to 620rwhp are doable but any more and I need fuel and need to look at engine, which I can go with a lt1 or lt4. My price is cheap on gm parts vs. built engine.
File to large on the startup. But this is just so in traffic play. Oh and it is on 20% less than spring so 4psi with cut at 6psi. http://cloud.tapatalk.com/s/5a19ca405cf9e/20171125_081729.mp4 Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
