  1. a decoupled alternator pulley is something new to me but from what I am able to determine is it works just like a fan clutch, spins a little freely i'm assuming it's designed to put less strain on the motor at low idle/acceleration.
  2. my 2018 1500 has the decoupled pulley, I used one that goes in a 2018 3500 6.6l, ac delco p/n: 84143541, 23298275 (KW5 220a), these are the same design as the mechman for nearly half the cost, I managed to find one on ebay for $100 (used), rock auto has it for $250, I paid $399 for my 240amp mechman in the 2012 yukon so $100 was a steal
  3. a previous thing I did was swapped in a 220amp alternator (kw5) from a 3500, it's plug-n-play just make sure you get the one with the correct pulley as there is 2 different ones, decoupled and steel
  4. the interior light "wire" is right under the dash on the drivers side plugged into the bcm, i just tapped into that wire and then I used the 10mm mounting bolt on the lower kickpanel as the ground and then just ran a led strip under the edge of the dash to the passenger side, zip tied it at both ends so it is tight like a tightrope, it's not in the way of anything and if it needs to be moved for any reason I can just cut the zip tie on the passenger side and pull it out then put it back later. I ran the wires so they are behind the factory wires and out of the way of getting yanked or pinched, the power wire is fused so if it shorted out for any reason it will just pop the fuse on the led strip and not harm anything else.
  5. my camera doesn't pick up the color just right, it's pretty close just not 3d looking in real life
  6. my original thought was maybe some electric fans, one on each side to blow cool air up from the bottom but quiet ones generally fans are noisy though. I could pick up one of those wireless cooking thermometers and see what the temps actually are under the hood while moving then experiment with a couple different things and see what works better.
  7. no, I just drive harder than 99% of the population, the transmission is the only part that gets hotter than what I am comfortable with and the underhood heat concerns me I wish I could figure out a way to direct more cool air into and out of the engine compartment, something simple that wouldn't require any major modifications.
  8. Deep pan will fit I have the same pan on my Yukon all you have to do is unbolt the exhaust a little during install. yes on the trans stat delete I took it all out, tapped it and put in a cap inside, I have a heavy foot, i had to do the same thing to my Yukon it would run 220+ just driving around town once I installed the tru cool and deep pan it runs about 135 the most I have gotten it up to since then was 180 and that was beating on it pretty hard normally just driving like I do it runs about 135-160 in the summer and about 125 in the winter
  9. ordered the Katech 80mm l83 ported throttle body, B&M 70392 deep trans pan and a tru-cool 40k, got to figure out how to mount up the tru-cool and avoid the active shutters looks like there might be enough room, has anybody added the tru cool on the 2018? any tips? I already took out the trans thermostat didn't help much.
  10. I will one way or another just dropped my wad on this truck so I have to spend most my time making that money back, once I have a little time to spare I will pull one of those housings out and see what can be done, can't be all that hard don't understand why there isn't more aftermarket support.
  11. ya, I saw that $500+ and on permanent backorder, all I need is a bracket and I can make some other lights work for way less cost, it's ridiculous to make a product that has a market but then price yourself out of the market, if they cut the price in half they could still make money and sell more of them. I might take one of these oem lights out and have someone with a 3d printer take some measurements and make some brackets, or a machine shop, doesn't seem to be anyone selling any alternatives. But i'm still looking around at this point, thanks for responding.
