  1. Pretty sure we got crossed somewhere. I wasn’t trying to imply that the intake and exhaust would require the tuning. I may have misread or just took something the wrong way. Either way, I agree, it will be an expensive process to tune. I doubt seriously if people like me who have zero plans for serious mods will pay that price for minimal HP gains. It’s not like the diesel world where you can easily grab 200 hp with a couple bolt ones. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. I’m aware of all that, I even mentioned it early on when I started the thread. This quote was from me asking someone else a question. He mentioned necessary serious mods and I wanted to know what was absolutely necessary other than intake and exhaust. It’ll be expensive, no more plug and play...I get it. People will always pay it though. My duramax had over $5k in performance although that was a much different return on HP. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. List the sources please. I’ve spoke to blackbear, 5 star, and diablew which are three of the more reputable custom tuners and they don’t have anything written for the 5.3 with 8 spd transmission. They’re all “working” on it. What serious engine mods are you talking about? For the average user the only mods needed are an intake and exhaust. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. HP Tuners is offering unlocked ECM or you can send yours in. It’s already broke but no tunes have been written yet. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Diablew has something in the works. No telling what the final cost will be though. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. I had a 2015 Sierra 1500 and upgraded to a 2500. I deleted, lifted, etc and absolutely loved my duramax. Honestly, I’m glad I went back to a 1/2 ton and won’t go back to a diesel unless I need to. I don’t tow often enough to justify it and the added cost isn’t worth it. I went back to a 1500 this year and the only thing I wanted was the 6’6” bed with my crew cab. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Dig through this thread and I think I posted the final gear ratios in the 6 spd vs the 8 spd. The new 8 speed with 3.23 is identical to the 6 speed with 3.73. I personally have 6” bds and 35’s and haven’t lost enough power to care. You’ll be fine. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. How is the shin attached? The BDS instructions state to remove a block if there is one. I also have the BDS 6” and never looked to see if mine are there. Y’all have me curious. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. They’re dragging their feet on getting them out. I’m actually thinking of calling king to get a set. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Did they release them for these trucks yet? I’ve only found them for the legacy body style. Try chatting with them during business hours, they’re usually easy to reach for tech support. I also have the BDS 6” and I’ve been waiting for a compatible coilover that I don’t have to custom order. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. The prestige and a sticker? Personally my RST is nicer than most trail boss trucks I see. Those black bumpers are atrocious. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. They’re not mud flaps. This thread labeled them such for lack of a better term. Their intent was to promote the aerodynamics for the truck....they look hideous and probably add .01% fuel savings. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Stock wheels work fine with 35x12.50r20 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. I actually emailed them and I’m waiting on a response. I haven’t found anyone with them yet. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Were the UCA necessary or personal preference? I don’t plan to jump this thing. I swore I wouldn’t go down this road again when I got rid of my duramax. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
