  1. 6.2Midnight Keep me posted, I want to do the same to my truck!
  2. Just asking...why couldn't we swap out the newer cap less filler neck with a 2016 design filler neck? Has anyone tried this yet? This would solve the fuel tank contamination issue and if you wanted to add a lockable fuel cap you would that option too.
  3. I was wondering how long it would take someone to notice this issue. The first time I saw this was in a heavy rain storm when I filled with gas, the water was sitting on top of the cap less flapper and I thought this can't be good over the life of the truck!? I haven't looked close at Ford's design to see if their having the same problem. I hope GM will look at this before some damage is done to the fuel system?
  4. I will drain my oil and replace the filter, then refill with 8 qtrs. to verify the oil stick level. Seems strange that a new 2017 engine may be over filled with oil? Will follow up when completed. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Drive safe. Ralph
  5. This is the first GM engine that I've seen that may read over full on the dip stick with the correct amount of oil capacity?! Mine is 3/4-1" above the full mark. What ever happen to "do not over fill" or is there another TSB on the horizon?
  6. My Silverado oil level is also high, not as high as yours but way over full for a factory fill?? Was thinking of draining and refilling with 8 Qtrs. to see where it reads on the stick. I first noticed it at about 1500 miles, anyone else run across this??? ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Also noticed my "adaptive exhaust valve" is sticking at idle, I checked 14 other new 2017 Silverado take-off exhaust systems this week at work and not one was sticking? Not sure if there related issues or not??
  7. Wonder if GM is watching...they have every other special edition, why not?!
  8. CDNSS, Thanks, that's what I wanted to know.
  9. Found this installation video on u tube. https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=video&cd=9&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwj9hdf6jJfYAhXC6IMKHfE0CMwQuAIISTAI&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3Dt_QrK_FixZs&usg=AOvVaw3x4mdDYfaFnPoTjHSloAKf
  10. Has anyone installed one or had one installed ? How much louder is it inside the cab and at 70 MPH ??
  11. I'm looking at a GM Performance Cat Back exhaust P/N 23462044 for my 2017 Silverado. Does anyone know which Corsa muffler is used in GM systems? Sport or Touring or some other GM spec.?? Thanks
