jshrubs started following Bilstein 5100 Rears - (2) Different Sets. 24-186742 and 33-238319, 4.3 vs 5.3 and Engine swap
Have you owned an ecotec 4.3? I currently own one, I've had 3 s10s with the vortec 4.3, and I drive a 5.3 for work. When I started driving my work truck, I obviously noticed the difference but not enough to say I bought the wrong truck. My 4.3 does everything I ask of it in daily driving situations and is capable of much more than that. The vortec 4.3 you're talking about is not the same as the ecotec 4.3 and those comparisons need to be put to bed. Apples to oranges.
Interested in the Bilstein 33-238319. PM sent.
Tried out turtle wax's new hybrid solutions ceramic polish and wax yesterday. Applied it with a da polisher. It looks great as a wax and I noticed that it did remove a lot of the light swirl marks in the paint, which was a nice bonus. I didnt test any of the hydrophobic properties as it says 24 hrs to cure. We got a bit of rain today. I drove the truck to get some things in town and I noticed that all the water on the truck was beading up nicely and there was no sheeting on any flat surfaces. Thats a win in my books. Gonna apply a second coat when I get a chance.
Just got this done the other day. Ran a full bottle through the throttle body similar to the pic above. Had the wife keep the RPMs at 2k and sprayed it in 1 second bursts and then had her blip the throttle up to 3500 RPMs 3 times and shut the engine off. Took it for a drive an hour later. Throttle definitely felt smoother during the 20 minute drive I took it on. I definitely recommend it.
Pretty impressive numbers! Do you have any sound clips of the exhaust? Been thinking about doing the exhaust on mine for awhile now.
