  1. Tuner question

    Pay him the $100 for the tuner. Return the truck back to stock. Sell the tuner on ebay and make $50-75 profit from it.
  2. F150 with the 5.0

    Chevy/GMC forced some of us to Ford when they decided to only offer a regular cab truck in a work truck package and a long bed only.
  3. WTB OEM rollbar

    Did you search on Facebook marketplace in your area? I see a couple pop up on there in my area every couple weeks. Unfortunately they are all off Sierra trucks.
  4. F150 with the 5.0

    Put a Hypertech tune and 93 octane in that Ford 5.0 and it gains 33 horse and 25 ft lbs torque peak at the wheels. local dealer has a 2019 f150 regular cab siting on the lot. I have been looking at it every time I drive by.
  5. Hypertech Max Energy 2.0 Part #2000

  6. V6 TUNERS

    No its a hand held programmer like the others you mentioned. Plug it in program truck then remove it.
  7. V6 TUNERS

    I have tried the Hypertech and Superchips on my 4.3 v6 Running premium fuel you will only get 8-10 horse and 10-14 ft torque. Regular fuel only 5 horse 7 ft torque. If you want more power and can get e85 the factory rates e85 at 12 horse and 25 ft torque over regular fuel. Running e85 makes a noticeable difference. With the superchips it does feel like it has more power down low. I don't like the Superchips 2-3 gear shift. To hard in my opinion. I didn't notice much difference in fuel mileage. Diablo, Edge and Superchips are owned by Powertech. Assuming their tunes are all the same as they rate the power levels the same.

    Looked at the Chevrolet web site today and on the build and price page for the 2019's the regular cab option is now available. Only options available are the long bed and the work truck trim. The GMC web site does not have the regular cab listed under build and price yet.
  9. Range Technologies

    Yes on the 2019 trucks. The WT,Custom and Custom trail boss use the 4.3L and 5.3L with AFM which drops down to 4 cylinders. The LT, RST, LTZ, LT trail boss and High Country use the 2.7L 4 cylinder with AFM, 5.3L and 6.2L with DFM. All three engines drop down to 2 cylinders. Actually the 5.3 and 6.2 can run on anything from 2 cylinders to 8 cylinders. Video explaining the 4 cylinder if you got 10 minutes to watch. https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=2019+chevy+silverado+4+cylinder+turbo+afm&qpvt=2019+chevy+silverado+4+cylinder+turbo+afm&view=detail&mid=DC856F77C3777BDB05C1DC856F77C3777BDB05C1&&FORM=VRDGAR
  10. Range Technologies

    Yes the 2.7 4 cylinder drops down to 2 cylinders in afm mode. The 5.3 and 6.2 engines that use dfm actually can drop down to 2 cylinders also.
  11. V4 mode

    My 4.3 had a shudder also. It went away when I changed to a MBRP exhaust. I am pretty sure it was the exhaust flapper valve that caused the shudder in v4. I have tried the Range device, a Superchips tuner and a Hypertech tuner. With v4 enabled I only got about .5 MPG increase in fuel economy. My truck will rarely go into v4 mode and stay in it above 35 mph. Just curious if any other 4.3 v6 owners see v4 mode above 35mph much??

  13. RCSB sighting

    vinemann12 I got a heck of a deal on my regular cab also. Bought my 16 as a left over in Feb 17 they gave me over $11,000 off. It was a LS rcsb with the 4.3 v6 It works for me as I usually only haul stuff in the bed and don't tow much. I have been looking at the 19 trucks. I like the body style but don't have a need or want for a double cab. If they make a 19 rcsb with the 4 cylinder I would get one.
  14. RCSB sighting

    A truck is to haul things or tow. A car, suv or van is transport people. I have always owned regular cabs. If Chevy/GMC only make a regular cab in the work truck package then I will buy a Ford.
  15. I emailed them last week asking about what version is needed for the 2019 trucks. They said 8.6r1 is the current version.
