  1. Hearing this makes me want an early christmas gift for my truck lol! My lifters went out earlier due to AFM... dealership fix under warranty, i did lift the front 2 inch and gotten 275/60/20 nittos and man my truck feels like it’s a v6 it’s just slogging! it’s always in v8 mode and i feel like the shifts are hard and the trucks just can’t pull... Im thinking this tune could fix this the problem and let the truck drive how it’s suppose to be. But my question is how’s the tune so far, have you had any problems with updating it? and also i’m not to familiar with tunes, the tune you got was the basic diablo tune which was the diablo tune canned 87? and you then got logs and sent it to Lew to get a custom tune? Also the 87 is the gas you have to run for the tune? Sorry for many questions just wanna learn.
  2. interesting, i email nitto for their recommendation also. Until then do you think 35 PSI is just fine for these P tires or should i bump it to 37? sorry for so many questions and thanks again!
  3. yes 35 cold after driving highway miles went up especially when i was hauling some dirt bikes. i just find it weird how the PSI goes up so high compare to the Michelin’s.
  4. if someone can help me that be great. I just install some P275/60/20 nitto ridge grapplers tires. Before these i had stock size michelin’s and i had the PSI at 35 with those and those would stay at that PSI a majority of the time. However, the nittos discount put 35PSI and since then the PSI jumps crazy they went all the way to 38PSI.My question is for these tires is the 35 to low for these since they keep on going up in PSI?
  5. did anyone disconnect the negative battery terminal? heard this things are sensitive and pulling out the TB with out disconnecting the battery can cuz problems with the idel after cleaning?
  6. what would be best to clean it with toothbrush or a towel? and what about parts around the blade how could i clean around there? Thanks again...
  7. been having drops in rpm when at a stop light, want to try cleaning TB before i start doing more research on what is causing it, but i’m a first timer how hard is to take it off the TB and what not to on the TB while cleaning it? Should i also clean my MAF sensor too while i’m at it and what could i use to clean that?
  8. hey does anyone know if a 2014-2018 LTZ key fob ( the chrome key fob) can be programmed to an 2014 LT truck. My key fob got screwed up it unlocks my truck all the time, i have a really close friend that works at the dealer and he says he can give me a ltz key fob for free since they are extra ones but i’m hoping that the dealer doesn’t come with BS and claims that it can’t be programmed to my 14 LT.
  9. did anyone find a problem yet? just started happening to my truck wrap my key Fob in aluminum paper because truck wouldn’t stop unlocking and didn’t want my battery to die, truck stop unlocking...
  10. Last night driving my truck i notice my check engine light was dim, not on fully but very very dim... Began to look online and find nothing really but a same problem with a vettee owner saying he had took it to a dealer for an ecm test failed it and they took care of it problem fix. However, before i got to dealer ( can’t stand going there) i want to see if anyone had the same thing? Took the truck to an local autozone for engine code test, nothing told them to check battery nothing... during the day light is no where to be found so just has me wondering. In the pictures the cluster lights are at the lowest. i’ve always drove with them at the lowest and never once seen the light so a reflection or some sort isn’t the problem. anyone has any idea what it might be? another thing too sometimes when i put my parking park and i turn off the truck when i come back to turn it the brake light isn’t on maybe it has to deal with the same thing... 2014 silverado 5.3 66k miles
  11. where do you find synthetic blend 0w20 ac delco? i’m looking online for it and i only found it on amazon for 12.95 a quart. might as well go full for that price... in the owners manual they recommend ac delco synthetic so knowing me wanting everything to be perfect i would want to use that type of oil... i mainly drive close by expect school which is other side of town but work and everything else is close by another reason i would want to go synthetic.
  12. x2 on highway it isn’t that bad, i always tell people on city driving just use m5
  13. alright guys, i’m 18 and somewhat getting into cars, never had anyone to teach me about engines, but i’m wondering is an LS engine a 5.3? i’m confused on the difference between a 5.3 and a 5.7, i try to look it up and i see a LS1 is a 5.7, but what is a 5.3 engine a LS? watching this series on youtube were this guy rebuilds this “ LS 5.3” which is pretty neat and makes me wanna get into since i always loved older chevys and loved cars in general, thanks again hoping for advice from older motorheads
