#1924774 Let's compare trucks GM/Chevy to Dodge!

Posted by Daryl Z71 on Yesterday, 09:16 AM

I run premium in my 5.3 with my tune, truck runs awesome. I should have bought the 6.2 in all honesty, but I may be trading up to a diesel sometime soon so that'll be even better

I run 89 in the truck, and 93 in the Cruze. The 93 in the Cruze makes a huge difference, especially in the warmer months with the A/C on.

The difference on a fill up between regular and premium isn't that bad.

Example:

25 gallons at $2.89 = $72.25
25 gallons at $3.09 = $77.25


#1924216 6.2 with afe intake = 36hp!

While this conversation is just a conversation to some, it also gets permanently entered into a searchable data bank that will without a doubt be accessed by thousands of people over time. I'm argueing because I don't want those people to think the test results are BS.


No one ever uses the search feature here anyway, they just create the same topics over and over and over and over... [emoji1]

No hate here! I've been wondering if anyone's used it on their older trucks, I'm sure it will still make it pop! Post pictures of you can!

I'll have pics for sure. After looking I think the only place it will really work is on my door panels. We'll see how it works out.


#1922701 Anyone ever traded in their iMac for a PC?

Posted by Daryl Z71 on 17 January 2017 - 08:56 PM

Look at the value and not the cost. When you spread it out over the entire life of the machine and add in all of the incidental expenses (and wasted time) from a Windows machine, they're cheaper. Additionally, buying Apple products used is exceptionally easy and safe because they can be reset to factory settings so easily.
 
I bought my iMac 27" 5K that way and saved well over 1/3 of the cost of buying new. That machine is now about 8 months old to me, about 18 months overall, and will be running for YEARS without the need to make any real changes to it.

I just don't like how you always have to buy accessories for them to make something work. I've never had a Windows computer completely die on me so I get my money out of them as far as them working. I always end up selling my old one or just buying a new one because I want to upgrade not because I'm having an issue. I like to tinker with them too much to buy an Apple. They are reliable though.

Linux is where it's at, but it doesn't come installed on anything from the factory, and depending on what you're using sometimes it can be hard to find a compatible program. Windows 10 is just okay, and like stated they update it every week "patch Tuesday". A lot of people are getting fed up with Microsoft and either getting Apples or installing Linux.


#1922312 Time to upgrade.

My advice, go with a diesel that came before they added even more of the emissions junk.

Only reason I'd trade in is to get an HD. That's why I'm not doing many modifications because it may end up happening depending on my needs

So all of these look good, and I've decided to try it on my 06. Won't be as flashy as you guys with the K2 trucks, but I'm okay with it. I went with steel blue for mine.
