Yep! I'm in Louisiana so 37 is COLD! Come to think of it, I don't think it's ever dropped below zero here. Only place hotter/muggier than we are is south Florida! It's mid-60s here right now up from mid-30s just a day ago.
Not planning on going into engine for cam, DOD delete, etc. I'm just trying to restore power lost by lift and tires. The Whipple kit comes with new NGK sparkplugs, so those will be changed. I don't have headers but I have the Borla GM catback system. My understanding is that the Whipple kit is designed to work with the stock engine? The instructions state not to use an aftermarket intake tube or box because the "canned" tune they ship with the system isn't written for anything other than their supplied tube. Can't I just install their tune, bolt the thing on, and go? I'd use the stock pulley included (4" I think?).
Has anyone installed the 2.9 Whipple on a Silverado 5.3 themselves, in your own garage/driveway, with normal hand tools? I looked over the installation instructions today and everything looks pretty simple. Just wondering if there are any "gotchas" to be aware of. Thanks.

lapoolboy replied to GMC_SD_Ult_16's topic in 2014 - 2018 Chevy Silverado & GMC SierraGuys, just because one may "expect" a vehicle's components to last a certain time they've deemed reasonable in their own mind based on how much they paid for the vehicle, the trim level of vehicle, etc. does not mean the manufacturer is in any way responsible if the component fails before the owner's expectation. Like the previous guy said, it made it past the warranty. That is all GM cares about. Some people think money spent equals quality or reliability. Not necessarily true.
