  1. Which tuner for me?

    Do a search but the most popular are Blackbear and diablew. 2014 z71 LTZ Volant Intake Borla Exhaust Diablo Bilstein 5100 Rough Country Level
  2. What about using one of these for crank case and brake booster? 2014 z71 LTZ Volant Intake Borla Exhaust Diablo Bilstein 5100 Rough Country Level
  3. Mine isn’t hard at a 117k mikes but I’ve experienced the hard pedal once in a drive through. My chargers brake pedal gets hard if it sits for a few days. It’s definitely vacuum related. Think I’m going to swap to an electric pump instead of the mechanical. 2014 z71 LTZ Volant Intake Borla Exhaust Diablo Bilstein 5100 Rough Country Level
  4. You can run multiple tunes with the intune just like autocal. Yes, you have to buy the intune before Lew can tune just like you’ve gotta buy the module from Blackbear before you can tune. Yes you can flash to stock with the diablo. Blackbear tunes with EFI Live and Lew uses Diablo CMR. 6 in one half a dozen another. I use the diablo for my charger so that’s why I’m using it on my truck. Once I get headers I’ll have Lew tune it. He’s got a huge following with the Hemi crowd just like Blackbear does with the GM crowd. Pick the one you like and get it. You won’t regret it. 2014 z71 LTZ Volant Intake Borla Exhaust Diablo Bilstein 5100 Rough Country Level
  5. I'm Out!

    I love the tundras. But the mileage and lack of features did it for me. They hold value exceptionally well (ridiculously so) and if it’s anything like my 4Runner was it’ll last until the end of time. I love the size of the crew max cabs. 2014 z71 LTZ Volant Intake Borla Exhaust Diablo Bilstein 5100 Rough Country Level
  6. Superchips F5 or Diablo I3

    Didn't realize superchips was doing custom tuning. Wonder how many tuners they have out there.
  7. Superchips F5 or Diablo I3

    Yup. 2014 z71 LTZ Volant Intake Borla Exhaust Diablo Bilstein 5100 Rough Country Level
  8. Superchips F5 or Diablo I3

    Same with the diablo. But instead of being locked to superchips you can have custom tuning done as well as canned tuning. 2014 z71 LTZ Volant Intake Borla Exhaust Diablo Bilstein 5100 Rough Country Level
  9. Superchips F5 or Diablo I3

    It’s a $150 for the tune and a year of support and updates. It’s an email tune you load to the i3 and then flash it to the truck. 2014 z71 LTZ Volant Intake Borla Exhaust Diablo Bilstein 5100 Rough Country Level
  10. Tuners

    I’ve got the canned diablo tune on mine. Don’t think it picked up a bunch of power but the transmission tuning and removing DOD//AFM alone was worth it. One day I’ll get Lew to tune it but not until I get headers. It’s a $150 to tune it and it’s unlimited retunes and updates through the first year. After that it’s $75 for 6 months of tuning. 2014 z71 LTZ Volant Intake Borla Exhaust Diablo Bilstein 5100 Rough Country Level
  11. I have not figured out why the HUD hasn’t taken off in more vehicles. In this day and age of hands free driving and less moving your eyes, the HUD is perfect. My dad’s C5 and C6 had it and his Audi has it and it’s just awesome. Just an FYI, don’t buy into the whole “you have to have a special windshield to use it and it’s a $1000 replacement” window installers will tell you. It absolutely works just fine with a normal windshield. 2014 z71 LTZ Volant Intake Borla Exhaust Diablo Bilstein 5100 Rough Country Level

    Ah. I was still thinking Borla based off of your original post. For $350 I'd go with the MBRP. Never ran them on a gas engine but did on a diesel. Nice systems.
  13. Running some rough calculations on the cost of e85, regular, and premium assuming 15,000 miles a year and getting 16mpg you are looking at a yearly cost of fuel of $2000-2800. That’s with average prices in my area of $2.17, $2.57, and $3 respectively. E85 does get less mileage than the other 2 and I’ve seen it stated than it’s between 10-20%. So figure 10% for best case scenario and the yearly cost of e85 increases to $2200. If it’s a 20% loss then the yearly cost increases to $2500. For those prices I’d much rather go ahead and get the 6.2 and leave it stock than get a 5.3 and buy a tune. But that’s just my opinion on it. 2014 z71 LTZ Volant Intake Borla Exhaust Diablo Bilstein 5100 Rough Country Level
  14. I’ve had dealers try to void warranties because of a fuel pressure gauge and deny warranty work on ball joints because I had put a lift on 3 days earlier. My dad had to argue with Chevy to get them to replace his 2nd trans is his corvette because they said he was using it for high performance driving. Get a 6.2. There’s no since in trying to modify a 5.3 to get 6.2 performance when you can just buy a 6.2 out right. No worries on warranty voiding or anything else. And if e85 isn’t easily available in your area that’s something to consider as well. Also, the loss of mileage versus the cost of fuel needs to be factored in long term. 2014 z71 LTZ Volant Intake Borla Exhaust Diablo Bilstein 5100 Rough Country Level

    Your money but personally I think it’s a waste to buy a full cat back. The cost vs performance isn’t worth it. And aluminized steel will last a long time and for the cost can be replaced a couple of times versus the price of a cat back. 2014 z71 LTZ Volant Intake Borla Exhaust Diablo Bilstein 5100 Rough Country Level
