If you want to get down to it, Yes replace all 16, replace head gaskets, valley cover and use a VVT cam. But bare minimum depending on his budget. You could technically reuse the head bolts, head gaskets, cover gaskets, use pipe plugs on the oil galleys. Almost every gasket on the engine is considered re-usable. Call Texas speed and tell them your budget and goal, they will give you what you need. For all we know he may be wanting to fix it cheap and not buy another.
I would call Texas Speed and they will tell you everything you need. You have VVT and can opt to keep it or remove it. Hold times can be long but TS can help you out. You really only need 8 lifter to replace the AFM lifter and the cam as well.
My buddy uses the same tent when we camp. He enjoys it and you can get 15% - 25% all the time from the company if you sign up for the EMails. Works well if you plan to camp next to your truck on every camping trip.
MadTunes Racing (318) 490-2017 511 E Main St, Oak Grove, LA 71263 This place is about 1 1/2 hours north of you. $280 for the tune, around $1,200 labor plus parts. Guy was not 100% of the cam/lifter pricing but said he would be willing to get you a quote.
Mikebtte replied to Paul Hoopengarner's topic in Automotive Industry & Market DiscussionYa, they have been behind the curve in advancements the last few decades. In 08 everyone one was making 4 cyl economic cars and GM was not. Soon after they started. Now that everyone has electric they are jumping in. Smart for letting everyone else do the grunt work? Dumb for not being the first to innovate? They are loosing the competitive advantage fast.
Mikebtte replied to jimbofoxman's topic in 2014-2018 Silverado & Sierra TroubleshootingAre you checking pressure with a gauge or are you going off what the TPMS are reading?
is this an 07-13 silverado? If so the top dash panel can be taken off (most likely breaking along the way) and the wires and connectors on the drivers side can be secured. They make a lot of ruckus and can be fixed.
When I worked at Cummins the ISX engine was having issue's with camshafts flaking and leading to more engine damage. They tracked the issue down to light weight synthetic oil. They also noticed that almost all of the engines would make it past the warranty, making for very few warrantable repairs. I say this because someone will chim in and say always run what the manufacturer recommends, some people believe that Chevrolet puts lots of money into research but the truth is the bank wont let them and you get what you get. 10W30 would make your engine last longer that 5W30.
