    I drive with an eye toward fuel mileage, I’m semi aggressive too. Add to that a little OCD. I don’t like to hold people up behind me a stop lights. I go a couple MPHs over on the freeway. Sometimes I still burn rubber. If my life revolved around maximizing my gas mileage I go bat crazy [emoji12]. One of the new features I’m seeing on some vehicles is after a trip you’ll get a display of fuel mileage, trip time, and average MPH. After you turn off the key. I have to close my eyes for a few seconds, or the competition with myself would drive me crazy. That’s leads me to wonder, is there anything you drive for pleasure? Or is everything a competition with oneself? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Bin there done similar. What I learned. Blower, small pulley 12 lb boost, E-85. I would look for a little older truck with the 6.2 pre cylinder deactivation. Second option older clean diesel if possible. My old 92 Chevy could easily be a daily driver and could and has been tuned to 600 HP. I stay around 500 HP on pump gas. Swapping out different engines in that new of truck, wiring etc seems daunting. Unlimited funds, go for it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    SUVs have more drone problems because of the full body. Example my Trailblazer ss had tuned factory exhaust. I just removed the resonator in back left the muffler on the drone was unbearable on trips. I put the resonator back on. Find a good bender and ask about just over stock sound. You will still have a noticeable V4- chopper sound with just about anything over stock. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. I agree, but some of us have to deal with emissions. Reminds me, back in 1995 I was driving a V-10 Dodge 1-ton. I gutted the cats and was driving in NJ, came across a road side sniff test. Every other vehicle, I just got by. 10K fine if I got caught. Never thought I’d be in NJ and there I was. Every state has different emissions laws. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  6. I’ve used banks kits a few times it’s a little more than just a caned tune. The question was are there tunes offered, the answer is yes. If you take the time to read their website about what they address and how they do it, engine,transmission, fail safes, warranty, impressive. I have friends, family members, who went delete, tune after warranty on higher mileage diesels to keep from spending big bucks keeping them on the road. The results was better fuel mileage and better drivability. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I was very satisfied with my gas mileage in my 14 GMC. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Just look up banks. Yes you can tune. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. 4.3 LV3 Fuel Efficiency

    My 14, 5.3, 342 gear GMC could easily get 24 MPG without the V4 at 65MPH. I documented in the gas mileage thread in the summer of 2014. My wife’s Genesis can easily get 30 MPG with a V-6 at 70 MPG. His mileage with a 2 door V6 truck especially driving for mileage I wouldn’t fine hard to believe. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. I can’t wait to here the exhaust noises coming out of trucks with skip fire. It’s going to be hilarious. The way I see out of it is with baffled mufflers, increased exhaust flow (V8) opening baffles to open exhaust. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. My working life was spent off road. One of the first things I did was change my tires usually to KOs highest ply and load range available. I run stock replacements lower air pressure. No noise, no difference. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Thanks for the highly informative thread. I especially like the mature intelligent changes to my phone. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    My brother in law had a 14 tundra, then a 15 Ram. My 14 GMC out ran both on E-85. The Tundra I was referring to was an 08 single cab TRD factory backed blown 5.7 you could buy from the dealer. Don’t know if the program is still offered. Interesting on the same top ten list the mid sized Toyota p/u was on the list also blown with a V-6. The high country, lightning, V-10 Ram, Syclone, Chevy SS, Raptor, Tremor. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
