    2014 Silverado LTZ, 1996 Impala SS
  1. I've got the same kit on my 2014 Silverado LTZ 5.3L. It definitely sounds more "throaty" when you accelerate hard. It also helped clean up the engine bay a bit as well and allows you access to the belt area. As far as performance, I definitely feel a stronger pull from a dead stop and when you have to accelerate hard on the freeway. Was well worth the investment in my book. Hope this helps! -TheImpalaMan
  2. New OPT7 H11 LED Headlight Bulbs

    I've been using these OPT7 H11 LED Headlight Bulbs I'm still using the factory weather covers, have not had any heat issues or any other issues for that matter. They are a snug fit, but once you get them sealed up, they are good to go. No holes drilled, no aftermarket weather caps needed. -TheImpalaMan
  3. New OPT7 H11 LED Headlight Bulbs

    This kit came with them already, wasn't anything additional to order. -TheImpalaMan
  4. New OPT7 H11 LED Headlight Bulbs

    I just installed these headlights and really like the output. However, I think I will have to remove the headlight pods in order to get the dust caps back on. I don't want to accidentally break anything by adding to much "pressure". I also installed the bulbs for the fog lamps, just to match the color/output for the headlights and really like the outcome. I'm thinking of going ahead and ordering the high beam bulbs just so that they all match the color output.
  5. Chrome Door Handles

    I got blank (unpainted) door handles on eBay. There are several Chevrolet dealerships that have eBay stores. When they came in, I took them to a body shop and had them color matched to my truck before I installed them. -TheImpalaMan
  6. Chrome Door Handles

    I'm selling my complete set of 4 Chrome door handles. I swapped mine out for color matched handles. PM me if you are interested. They are off my 2014 Silverado 1500. -TheImpalaMan

  9. Leave lift or remove.

    I'd put it back to stock height, but thats just me. This is your truck man. It all depends on how you see your ride. Looks good blacked out -TheImpalaMan
  10. Have you done a battery ground draw test? If you have a MultiMeter, disconnect the negative battery terminal. Set the multimeter to read 10 or 20amps. Hook up the multimeter between the negative terminal of the battery and the negative battery harness. If you have an alarm, disconnect its power before you do this test. If not, see if you are reading any amps. If you are, then you have a battery draw somewhere. With the multimeter hooked up, you can pull the fuses, one at a time, to see if the battery draw stops. Just pull a fuse and if the draw reads the same, put the fuse back in. Do this until the multimeter reads no battery draw. Once you find the fuse that stops the battery draw, you will find the circuit that is causing you issues. -TheImpalaMan

  12. Starts and Dies

    Make sure its a fuel issue and not a spark issue. If you recently changed the fuel pump, check the fuel pressure at the fuel filter. If its good there, then check the pressure at the fuel rail. Make sure the fuel regulator hasn't gone bad. Double check your ignition system to, make sure the connections are good and you don't have any lose grounds anywhere. -TheImpalaMan
  13. Engine oil

    How many miles on on this 97? If you haven't hit 200k, and the compression is still really good, I'd stay with 5 or 10w-30. However, if you are close to 200k, might be a good idea to change your timing chain set as well as your oil pump just to keep things fresh. diyer2 has a good question...does the engine use/burn motor oil? If so, how much do you lose by the time of your next oil change? -TheImpalaMan
  14. Heat issues

    Also check the vacuum source...in the engine bay. It sounds like you aren't getting any vacuum to the entire ventilation system. If you have an HVAC diagram, find the vacuum source and make sure it is good before you start taking apart your dash. You can find these diagrams online if you don't already have one. -TheImpalaMan
