  1. I agree with that. With the fuel mileage I get with my 6.0, I might as well be at 8.1 liters. Although cruising down the highway at 70 I can squeeze out 15-16 mpgs. City and towing forget about it.
  2. You don’t go up a mountain 3 minutes faster than the competition having an extra 29hp and 10 ftlbs. Transmission/gear ratios played a huge role in the outcome of that race. I’d be far more worried about transmission problems in a 10 speed vs 6 speed though so maybe they just need to option a 4.10 with the 6.6 for those folks who don’t care about getting an extra 1 mpg.
  3. https://www.mastmotorsports.com/collections/crate-engines/products/high-output-l8t-6-6-liter-factory-mast-turn-key-crate-engine-port-injected alright…..no direct injection to deal with so how do I make this work.lolol
  4. usually gm performance exhaust is Borla. Its been that way for a while. Before that I believe it was Corsa. That section of stainless webbing is a flex connection so the exhaust is not so rigid.
  5. You might need to check your water pressure, it could just be a little too high.
  6. From what I’ve noticed, seems like I will be able to go maybe 3 months keeping within the ppm range.
  7. Thanks! Yea I’m kinda sorta professional in a sense I trained to be in the business, but chose another career path so it remains my hobby. The filter setup is by CR Spotless and like stated by another member, removes all the mineral deposits for spot free washes. Wouldn’t have it any other way.
  8. Pretty happy with my setup....took a while to get to this point [emoji23]
  9. Nice, yea I did the extended myself. I wasn’t really worried too much about the truck, but for $1500 I was covered another 2 years on everything.
  10. Yea that’s wierd. Hopefully it’s something simple.
  11. Impressive in my book. I know a lot of people dog on the 6.0/6L90 but they can take the abuse.
  12. Pretty good pulling that kind of weight up that grade at 50 mph. [emoji2375]
  13. Yea that be sweet, idk if I mentioned it in another thread but keeping a basically stock L96, but boring out to 6.2 or 6.6. Would be interested in seeing those numbers if anyone has done something like that
  14. I also pondered this swap....would be cool if it worked but sounds like it won’t.lol Edit only because I can’t fit a larger truck in the garage.......way to go gm for making an even larger truck [emoji849]
  15. We had an 01 8.1, they put the rings in wrong so a new motor at 30k. We also had an 06 with the 6 speed, that was a sweet truck. I think most would agree the the 6.6 needs 4.10’s or a different trans.
  16. I wouldn’t even care about the worse fuel mileage.....if they’d make a modern 8.1 and Allison I’d buy.
  17. Yea borla definitely has the gm sound figured out....corsa does as well.
  18. Never been a flow master guy, to me they seem to do more bad than good. I got a borla s type system for my 6.0 and it sounds awesome.
  19. Damn....bummer. Not sure of the circumstances but I’d imagine that kind of power in snow could be sketchy.
  20. Seems like all those things do is make it really loud inside the cab....but if that’s what your going for, I’m sure you could make something relatively cheap [emoji2375]
  21. Mine had all the skid plates....but wasn’t a z71. With z71 u should get hill decent control
