  1. Lmao We can play that game, my 750rwhp coyote would have spanked your “little slant nose” two times over. And yes those days are gone for me too unfortunately. Anyway, yes I see your point the 6.2 is clearly the better platform if it’s power your after. However I’m a gear head and I mess with everything I buy lol my only plans are to add the AFE Intake and maybe, and that’s a big maybe a down pipe, no catback or an annoying exhaust. But I won’t be doing any other mods this truck is my daily driver. Back on track, besides superchips are there any other companies that mess with tuning. I would imagine HP Tuners would have something for the T1 in the works Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. No one is “fascinating” on the 6.2. It was merely an example or comparison that a modern boosted 4 cylinder can make V8 power. Now boost the V8 and it’s a different story obviously Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. First off, this is a truck, not a race car. Anyone “racing” a 5000lb truck is an idiot. You should educate yourself on boost, e85 etc. Plenty of 4 cylinders out there that mop the floor with V8s. I’m a V8 guy at heart, I have had a turbo Cobra, supercharged 5.0 coyote etc I’m not new to the game. We will just have to wait and see how this engine responds to mods. My 2018 WRX, which was a 2.0 made over 400 AWHP with full bolt ons. Stock it was rated at 264hp. So making an additional 100+ hp out of a factory boosted engine is not hard.

  4. I definitely will, I already have paid for it, won’t ship till December or January unfortunately. Where are you seeing exhaust for the 2.7 I can’t find it on AFE website. I would really be interested in a catless downpipe and also a bigger FMIC If someone cracks the ECU for tuning we could run e85 and make some real power. Exhaust, intake and FMIC on e85 would easily make more power than a 6.2 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I’m absolutely loving my 2.7! I ordered the AFE intake with the dry filter. Curious to see what the aftermarket comes out with for this engine. So Far very happy with it. This is my first Chevy, And first full size truck. I have had everything from a 750rwhp Coyote on E85 to a 400awhp WRX and this is my favorite vehicle so far. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Really? The YouTube Videos made it look extremely simple on the V8 trucks. There is no “need” for aftermarket hooks, clearly it’s purely aesthetic. I’m sure the stock hooks are good for far more than the engine/trans can handle. My reference to the aftermarket hooks being “beefier” was regarding their appearance, not strength vs the stock units. I Made this post because I have a seen a few people asking about these in other threads. And for what it’s worth, the install was not worth the hassle, definitely worth it to just paint the stock ones. -Ryan
  7. Very nice quality. They are beefier than stock and seems like the coating on them will last a long time. Overall I’m very happy with them. Install on the passenger side was 5 minutes. The driver side was an absolute nightmare, I have the 2.7 and in the front bumper there is a huge plastic shroud and what looks to be an electric air damn. The two bolts on the tow hook face towards this. One bolt comes out but it’s extremely tight. The second bolt is to long and is physically impossible to get out. It hits the shroud, I ended up cutting it off and then put a new bolt in through the opposite direction. To remove the shroud and air damn it looks like the whole front bumper has to come off. Seems like the V8 does not have that shroud and air damn so if you have a 4 cylinder, be prepared for hell. What should have been 30 Min total took 2 hours fighting with the bolts on the driver side.
  8. I ordered the AFE intake but it won’t be here till the end of December Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
