  1. I thought BlackWing was the name of the 4.2 TT motor ? And WTF happened to that motor?
  2. I have a hard time believing its getting LT5 but man would that be something. Price wise is interesting take here. The X5 M Comp starts around 106K while the X7 starts at 100k . LOL what a bargain compared to the -->The Benz GLS 63 which starts around 130k . I would imagine it will 125k is obtainable ( with the LT4) With LT5 I'm thinking more. I mean the ZR1's were around 120k right ?
  3. I love the interior on this refresh but is Super Cruise and basically the same body and 6.2 enough to warrant 80+k ? I know i sound like a broken record but man this would have been a great time to give the engines some power bumps too.
  4. Why even have to go to great lengths to explain yourself. Your happy and your getting a really nice truck, end of story. Not everyone will be on board with your justifications and that's ok . And yeah CA leadership sucks. Well just leave at that .
  5. Good luck mate. Your getting a really nice truck. I’m sure you will be happy.
  6. and to think how long ago this engine was out makes even more bad ass.
  7. Brother that engine was dead long time ago . ( i don't even think it was a GM engine?) someone can correct me. I think the new 5.5 Z06 engine will be the last bad ass V8 from GM> We are getting into Turbo territory/along with EV .
  8. lol Ill take louder exhaust! But i do see some mug boggers in your future.
  9. Still unreal that we have the same exact 5.3/6.2 ratings from 2014 . We will be 10 years into the same ratings until maybe their main engines get a bump. Look i agree with you on both motors needing a bump but the 5.3 is desperate for a bump. Lowest rated HP/TQ of all 5 liter engines.
  10. I thought the difference in the C8 was simply the freer flowing exhaust ? Like the C7 from 455 to 460 Another damn question is why wont GM give the 6.2 the C7 ratings ? 450HP 490TQ for the next 6.2 ratings! Lastly i was comparing the 668 HP to the Z06 Rating of 650 . Blower looks to be same size was really what i was thinking.
  11. But why not just get a HD ? So you can also have the thick frame/suspension/etc
  12. How did they get an additional 18 horses on the CT5 V model ?
  13. I'm now about 3-4 months in after getting it replaced/fixed and so far so good.
  14. Buddy brought his TB over and we did Borla Atak muffler. Color me impressed. Sounds so damn good. maybe picked up a couple of horses at same time ?
  15. No not at all . You do credit when your ready to buy . We order about 10 new trucks every 18 months from GM for our Farm. When they come in we run our credit like every other time and pick it up . Its almost like they want to see who has more potential to buy from them.
  16. With a 3.5 lift you should more then able to put a 35in tire. Post up pics when you have it !
  17. Mamma had a Chevrolet Celebrity! That thing was made out of plutonium.
  18. With the EV Silverado , its hard for me to see them doing a LT4 hot rod truck. And that's disappointing because we already know they have the engine. I mean if the new ZR2 gets the same 6.2 as every other high trim, should be our indication .
  19. Cmon Mary! Sack up! Grab your man balls and lets do this
  20. If Dodge/Fiat/Stillantis can give every damn thing in their lineup a 700+ HP motor , i agree why not get LT5 ? At worse you can rate it at 700 .. IT WILL SELL! People who buy these cars dont care about a 1-2k car payment. Probably a write off anyway.
  21. Hope so , even if its just for the Escalade. They need a flag ship V or whatever they call it model to compete with the BMW X7/GLE/Range Rover Etc. You know damn well it will sell. If someone will pay 100k+ for one now , another 20-25k is nothing to them. About time! Why not the exact set up out of the CT5 V ? 668HP please
  22. I love the power plant but yes looks wise is not fully catching my eye. I agree with you . Well see how things go .
  23. Interesting that on this truck GM did what i have been asking! Keep the shifter stick but shorten it up like the Benzes. I actually think this interior is nicer then the refresh 23 models. Just my opinion.
