  1. I’d probably lease one first. I’ll probably stick with Camry, Accord, Mazda 6, as far as purchases from here on out. Probably CPOs, entry levels. Just getting too expensive, too many electronics for my taste. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Damn really? I was thinking Lexus next. I’ve had 4 Hyundai’s all went to 100K miles flawlessly. Two I still have. My Toyota getting ready to hit 50K in a little over two years no problems. My 01 intagra just maintenance. I’ve only had two vehicles give me problems in over 40 years, both under warranty. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. I must admit I would have to question the builder. I’ve seen engines go two, two 1/2 times it’s original horsepower and stock bottom ends hold up. I’ve seen people with daily drivers do it with nitrous on stock engines. Something’s amiss. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Or add a cheap glass pack as a resonator. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I find these types of discussions very informative and entertaining. Being involved in many years of extreme testing with synthetics in extreme environments. The oil such as Amsoil, Redline types oils are must. As far as normal use vehicles in normal uses just about any recommended oil will do the job. Especially changing the oil at or under 5000 miles. One thing I learned from these discussions. Sometimes I was spending more money then I needed to on top shelf oil. At lower oil change intervals cheaper oil was more than enough. Kinda like going to a bachelor party with one purpose. And bringing crown royal, when the store brand will do. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. I figured you fudged a bit, I ran the numbers. Just ribbing a bit. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. You wouldn’t have too much to worry about. According to your numbers you’re really old or drive a lot. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. I was always amused that people who go through the expensive of upgrading rotors and pads when tires were the problem. My old truck has over sized tires. The stock brakes has no problems engaging anti loc. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. It’s not only GM, my Camry drops to 4Th if I go to manual mode. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. I had an 08 Ram reg cab. It was a blast and reliable. Right after my trailblazer ss. Big shoes to fill. I was impressed with the road manners for a pickup. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. The same problem I had looking at the midsized GMs when they came out. Bang for the buck. I like the midsized when looking, double cabs were cheaper. We’re as Ram would have a stripped single cab with a hemi at 20K. I watched at the time a show called gears. They had a reg cab hemi build. All said and done a do it yourself build with leather seats and goodies galore. Coming in under a reg cab GM V-8 starting price. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. My father was forced out of school in the eighth grade. Later we learned he was dyslexic. He built two successful business. I was lucky to be involved in the second one. I don’t put much stock in spelling in terms of intelligence. I’ll absorb useful information without judgement. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. You could replace the battery I’ve done that. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. In 2014 there was a thread on this site about installing blowers on a 5.3 and 6.2. Lingenfelter I believe stated 50 HP difference between the two with a blower. The reason was the 6.2 was tuned to run on premium stock leaving less tuning with a blower. Make sense since using E-85 on a stock 5.3 gets you within 40 HP in stock comparison.

  15. Heavy duty diesels run at high loads about 95 percent more than the average vehicle. Probably why they use those. Most people don’t keep their vehicles long enough for it to matter. Add to that, most people don’t check their oil, empty a catch can? Most people live in pristine subdivisions where are they going throw the waste? In a can at the curb next to two- three others? On the lawn, down the drain? All this was probably taken in account and figured 90 percent of people wouldn’t notice any drop in performance. If there’s any. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
