  1. I install a TPI in a 65 GMC pickup. Transplanted the engine and transmission out a suburban along with the computer. Drove that around ten years. TPIs weren’t that bad. I was happy when they came out with the Vortec though. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. That’s funny I’ve been driving my 92 two-three times a week for 8 years. The ac blowing, in the busiest stretch of roads in the county. There’s not too many trucks that stay with it to the speed limit. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. 92 TPI with one rebuild. Anything can be made to run good. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. I thought they were fast for their time and were. What do people want a 12 second truck? Well you can, by ordering right and very little mods. Saying vehicles today are slow is laughable. Just proves people are never satisfied. Then you add fuel mileage, geez get real. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I had a 94 impala ss, a 94 z28, a 85 mustang gt at the same time. I was in hot rod heaven. My Camry will out run 2 of those, my wife's Geneses will out run them all. The 6.2 Chevy truck will out run all of those, the 5.3 in certain configurations would come close or ahead too. Slow, I think not. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  6. Third cat for? I’ve read the third cat is for California. It does noise reduction too. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. The resonator is just part of the factory high flow exhaust. In the (old) days they did it with very restricted cat and muffler. Three cats and two mufflers today. I haven’t looked I expect more with the split fire engine. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Drone pretty much started with cross over exhaust, it comes in at certain RPMS. True duals without the equalizer usually don’t drone, they rumble. The V4 is a different animal. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. I ran E-85 in my 14 because it came capable and using it would give additional HP. It seemed to like it and I could get it cheaper that reg sometimes definitely cheaper than premium. I would usually tune my truck for premium and get the boost in performance that way. I did tune the transmission and turned off the cylinder deactivation. I did raise the shift points and RPMs and set the transmission at 50 percent TM. Every thing I’ve read says don’t put E-85 in a non flex fuel vehicle. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. My renter, real nice young lady. Has a lifted smaller Jeep. Has leather all that. Last year after a heavy rain she stopped to chat. I noticed no carpet. I asked her about it. She kinda laughed and said it leaked real bad from the rain. The carpet started to smell and she removed it. Her Jeep is a hard top. She didn’t think it was a big deal and said she really loved her Jeep. I asked about rattles, wind noise. Her answer was yes, again no big deal. Jeep owners are different.

    It’s nice to read that one of the prettiest states in the union isn’t totally messed up....yet. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. My brother in law has had several Tahoe- suburbans and a pickup. They buy cpo or used. They are used as the main ride for 200K then he puts another 100K on. One required a rear end replacement. He just bought a 13 Tahoe first cylinder deactivation vehicle for him. The one he took weathered well still looks good. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    That’s surprising. Most I hear people move from California to Arizona, Texas or Florida because they can by twice the house for 1/2 the money and the general cost of living is much cheaper. It of course depends where you live even in Texas. In my case I have 3 acres with two houses separated by a tree line and two drive ways. One a house I rent out, my play money. No HOA low taxes. I’m surrounded buy the highest tax rate property in the county. The only place cheaper I thought was Florida, California really? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I hope you love it! My wife’s grandfather was a painter. When we first were married 45 years ago all he talked about was retirement and getting a camper. His wife was the main reason she wanted to travel. The day came. He took his new truck and camper to Texas to visit his daughter from New Jersey. When he came home he park the camper at a yogi bear rv park and sold the truck. On the weekends they would go to the rv park. He would sell vegetables he grew in his garden, she would get to enjoy her camper. The whole pulling the rv adventure scared him too death. Some people just aren’t cut out for it.

  15. Chevy would have had me and the wife buying their cars again if they had been a little more reasonable with the SS import they sold for a few years. It would have been a natural for me being a multiple rear drive impala buyer years ago. Instead she drives a Genesis. It performs close to the SS we got it for 20K cheaper. Going on 8 years of problem free driving with 2 years of warranty left. I’m not a hater just a realist. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
