Well I talked to a reputable shop and the cost to install American Racing long tubes was $500.00. But he wanted me to get the American racing y pipe with the high flow cats which was covered under the $500.00 install of the headers plus another 350.00 to go from the cats out to the back with a single in and single out. I thought the labor for the header install was a bit to high at just the sound of it although I understand he has a shop and the cost of running it. I don't think the overall performance gain is enough compared to the cost myself. I think I'm going shorty header and cat back system for less than half the cost. Sent from my VS987 using Tapatalk
Has anyone done a long tube header, hi flow cats, H pipe and true dual mufflers turned down just after the axle on a 2014+? If anyone has done it this way I would like to hear your thoughts and experience overall. I was thinking this would be the way to go for best performance and sound but not sure. I will be contacting a shop tomorrow to see what they say about it. Sent from my VS987 using Tapatalk
I don't know the answer but you might try calling Discount Tire and see if they could answer it for you or even a dealership.
There is a lot of useful and informative videos on YouTube and I think you should start there. Patience is the #1 rule when doing something such as this if you aren't familiar to the process. Once you get going your confidence will build but even then don't rush anything. You got this!
If the 2016 model pickups will have the same vibration problem that seems to be more common with the 14 & 15 models than first thought. I'm not so sure considering the post I have read on here stating that they haven't had their issues corrected and GM is basicly telling them to deal with it or playing the wear you down game. I find it hard to believe that GM isn't able to figure out what is wrong with the 14 & 15 models that have the vibration issue. If the 16 models do not have the same issue does that mean anything regarding the 14 & 15 issue was discovered and corrected? Thoughts? I will be test driving the 16 model at the first opportunity to see how they drive.
I would think so but you can check them on this site to compare what you are currently running. http://www.willtheyfit.com/index.php?width=265&aspect=65&diameter=18&wheelwidth=8.5&offset=10&width2=285&aspect2=75&diameter2=17&wheelwidth2=8.0&offset2=10#content
I'm not sure that will clear with a negative offset. Check this site to get a better visual of where it will put the wheel at compared to what you are runningcurrently. I went with a +10mm offset and I run a 285-70R17 with no issue at all and it will clear a 33" tire. http://www.willtheyfit.com/index.php?width=265&aspect=65&diameter=18&wheelwidth=8.5&offset=10&width2=285&aspect2=75&diameter2=17&wheelwidth2=8.0&offset2=10#content
Hello every one. I have read through a lot of the threads and learned a lot from it and there is a wealth of information on this forum and I just wanted to say thanks to everyone. In trying to provide something positive I found a couple of sites that were helpful to me in trying to figure out what my truck would look like and what wheel and tires would fit my truck so here they are along with a pic of my truck. I have replaced the factory door speakers with RF speakers and added a Procomp 2.5" leveling kit along with 17x8 Ultra Maverick chrome wheels and Nitto 285-70R17 tires. Really enjoying my new ride. http://www.performanceplustire.com/products/wheels http://www.willtheyfit.com/index.php?width=265&aspect=65&diameter=18&wheelwidth=8.5&offset=10&width2=285&aspect2=75&diameter2=17&wheelwidth2=8.0&offset2=10#content
