Your logic seems to be spot on with a bad injector, especially if you've ruled everything else out. Are you getting the P050D code? Many members with injector issues on the K2s have consistently reported that.
2014-2018 K2XX Gm/Borla cat-back system. This is comparable to the Borla Touring system. This has the adaptive exhaust valve (Flapper) that takes care of the V4 helicopter noise. Part number is 19303345. This is the Dual Side Exit system for Chevrolet Silverados and GMC Sierras equipped with the L86 6.2L V8. This system will fit crew cab short bed trucks and double cab standard bed trucks. I bought this to replace a defective system, as I did not expect Borla to do anything. However, Borla replaced the front pipe on my old system free of charge. Since my old muffler was broke in, and as a result, noticeably louder, I kept the old system. This system is in like new condition with no defects. It is ready to go on your truck. Pricing today is $850. Open to reasonable offers. This is a like new system that retails for $1200 without tips, which are an additional $120.
Make sure you rinse the bottom of your truck frequently and maybe undercoat Epic, they salt the LIVING CRAP out of the roads up there. Let's see, in my upper glovebox I have 7 mil Hardy nitrile gloves from Harbor Freight. I absolutely LOVE those. Great for all tasks, especially working on vehicles, and they are right there. Plus as relatively inexpensive as they are I have no issue burning through a box of em. Lower glovebox has the owner's manual, my factory headlights, factory valve stem caps, bed hole plugs, Chevy Trucks umbrella from my Dad's old Suburban roadside kit, and a couple microfiber cloths for cleaning screens. Center console has the Chevy organizer, which has a full coin organizer, manual dial tire pressure gauge, small Chevy Trucks flashlight, Chevy knife, and a Chevy multi tool (I love Chevy Mall and Chevy Norscot). I also have the key for my hitch receiver lock. That flashlight gets tons of mileage, great for quick looks and inspection. In the front pocket I have 3 Chevy pens, a little Chevy notepad book, and a factory Microsoft charger for my Lumia 640. On the file folder hooks I have three folders. The front folder has my proof of insurance and current registration. The second folder has my window sticker and the RPO printout detailing installed options on my truck. The rear folder has the current year's paperwork related to service information, such as parts invoices and service receipts. On the bottom I have a roll of heavy duty shop towels, a new Chevy first aid kit, an older Chevy Trucks first aid kit (with newer stuff inside) from the Suburban kit, a reconfigurable Chevy Trucks flashlight/lantern, a Chevy power bank with usb cable, and all the albums of my favorite band. Gotta have tunes. One of my most favorite things I pack along, found in the center console, is Fast Orange wipes. Smooth on one side, scrubbers on the other, these things are GREAT. Amazing way to clean your hands, surfaces, etc etc etc. A fantastic way to clean up on the go. Highly highly highly highly highly recommend. In the lower pocket on the back of the console I have a Chevy Trucks 100 years COB light, that bad boy is BRIGHT and fantastic for detailed inspections. I also have a couple of Chevy ice scrapers. Those work well, and since I have a garage at home and a parking garage at work, so a brush is not necessary in my eyes. In the left seatback pocket I have old service paperwork and my log for even years, and the odd years go in the right seatback pocket. That way I have a hard copy for reference and I know where they're at. Last fall I broke down and snagged a GM underseat storage bin. I was piling up accesories (and then had an excuse to get more ), it fits the best of the options out there, and it works with my floor liners. I cut a section out on the left side to fit my roadside kit, but otherwise it fits well. On the right side I have a Curt 10k lb hitch ball mount with a 10k ball in a Chevy Silverado bag, 4 Curt 733 lb blue ratchet straps in a Chevy Silverado bag, and a Curt 9k LB GVW (18k lb break strength) tow strap in a Chevy Trucks bag. With the bags they provide the opportunity to keep stuff clean, and they are licensed too. I'm a sucker for that. The center section has my trusty Chevy sunshade, the fancy thick one. The left side has a Chevy water bottle, fast funnels (https://fastfunnel.com/index.html), a blue Chevy blanket, and my Chevy roadside kit (the fancy one with the bowtie). The roadside kit has 6 gauge jumper cables, a hand powered flashlight, grippy gloves, silver duct tape, a couple of bungee cords, zip ties, a 4 way screwdriver, and a pair of pliers. I've added leather Chevy Silverado work gloves, a locking Craftsman crescent wrench, a 24 bit Craftsman ratcheting screwdriver, a medium size pair of Craftsman adjustable pliers, and a roll of the narrow Gorilla tape. Sorry to go bonkers, I'm kinda pleased with the lot of stuff I've organized and haven't really shared my full list of stuff.
Original post revised in an attempt for clarification. System is like new with no defects, bought it to replace an identical system with a defect. My impatience came back to haunt me, Borla ended up getting me taken care of. As others have mentioned, mufflers get louder with age, and after 50,000 miles my old muffler was noticeably louder than the new one, so I decided to keep it. My loss is your gain. Brand new these are $1200 for the muffler and pipes and $120 for the tips, this a great chance to get a like new system for a great discount. $800 or best offer.
Thanks for the pic SnakeEyeSS. He still runs well, so I'm not too worried about it. May change the plugs with my next tire rotation, seeing as I'll have the wheels off (thinking access through the wheel wells will be a CINCH!). Belts were easy, the AC and Vacuum belts came with installation tools that made life much easier. Tensioner was also a quick and easy R&R. Everything is nice and quiet again. So glad salt is such a rare occurrence out here. The frame rails look remarkably decent for nearly 3 years on the road. That being said, I have more Amsoil HD metal protector coming from @Black02Silverado (THANK YOU NICK! He rules!). The first spraying worked wonders, so I'm excited to see what more coverage can help with.
Sorry to hear of your misfortune, the wanting to puke feeling is very well justified. That being said, I think you took the best course of action. Would be cool if they special ordered you a truck and gave you a nice discount, should you want to replace the TB with another TB.
CadillacLuke24 replied to RyanbabZ71's topic in Off-TopicGood to know LOL. Decided against the Aurora car, just didn't have a good gut feeling. Oh well, one of these days.
Thank you to all for posting shots of your installed glowties They look cool as heck, though the spacing around the perimeter of the bowtie isn't as clean and tight as my regular bowtie, and the daytime illumination looks a bit purple-y for my liking. May have to chew on it a bit! This is why I love this forum...had no idea this was even an option for Clyde. Thanks guys!
This is why I love forums I go off of Miles to Empty. It is disturbingly accurate. I've had times where I was within miles to the good of the Range saying I'd be bone dry, backed the speed down a bit, and made it no sweat. I try not to push it that far, but I generally go until the range reads LOW and then fill up.
