  1. I installed the True-Dual Type S, it is a really nice unit and sounds really good! I will say that it is loud, very comparable to the ATAK, in my opinion. Mine did not require any tuning, it is just a CAT-back so it was good to go. I ended up adding a resonator to each run to tone it down a bit, I would say it is perfect now.
  2. I have a 2020 High Country 6.2 that has a leveled Trail Boss lift and the Whipple supercharger. I love the increase in power and the relative exclusivity!
  3. I didn't pursue a CAI due to the tune not supporting one.
  4. Most likely, any warranty coverage would have to be fought for... However, the Magnuson–Moss Warranty Act would require that they prove that the supercharger caused whatever failure occurred...in theory.
  5. I noticed the trans issue even before the install. If you are hard on and off the throttle, it seems to think about the shifts more than make them, sometimes.
  6. No huge news, but the truck is great and much faster, at least by my calibrated seat-of-the-pants evaluation. The only negative I have is that, I’d say it is a bit prone to surging early in the power band.
  7. I will be doing away with the DoD in the near future and that will be the time to do a few upgrades...
  8. You are the first one I have seen post that "the 6.2L lifters, springs and rods have been prone to failure" on the T1 6.2L...
  9. That seems a bit excessive but it might be good in the long run, depending on what your ultimate goals are.
  10. I picked it up about an hour ago. It is very stealthy, you don't hear the SC at all! The weather is really ugly right now so I don't have much else to share, picture or video wise. There are no drivability issues whatsoever, under normal driving you wouldn't even know its there. The tech went back and was able to install the Whipple belt on it. His guess is that Whipple made the belt so tight that it has more room for adjustment after it stretches. He basically had to loosen the adjustable pulley so that it was able to wobble at an angle and allow the belt to start. I will share more when I can.
  11. It was an o-ring that had rolled and was damaged. It is fixed an running. They have a little more bleeding to do on the cooling system and an extended test drive and it should be done. They just ran out of time today.
  12. Nope, don’t have it yet. The tech ran into two problems. The belt that came with it was too short and there is a T fitting on the rear of the SC that is leaking. They are working out the T fitting issue and they are saying that it won’t be today…
  13. Not that there is a huge pool of our trucks driving around with a Whipple but I have only heard of yours having an issue like that. I HOPE that mine goes like most of them that are on the road...
  14. As long as it only has a cat-back, the canned tune from Whipple will be adequate for ~150 HP gain. There is the likelihood that having it dyno tuned could yield more, but for me, 150 HP is good enough and will help the tranny last longer... The Whipple tune is also 50 state emission compliant and that could be a good thing.
  15. For everything, right around $15k. I’ll post more pics when it is done.
  16. I dropped the truck of at the dealer this afternoon to have the Whipple installed. They claim it will take 11 hours, so I should have it back on Friday. I installed a Borla True Dual S Type cat-back exhaust with the optional resonators to bring the volume down a bit. It really sounds good! I ordered a new ECM from RockAuto for $200 and sent that to HP Tuners to be modified. The Whipple took less than a month to be delivered, so I was a caught off guard when I got the shipping notification and “had to” (read: wanted to) rush to get everything set up for the install. I want to maintain the good relationship with the dealer I bought the truck from, in hopes that, if there are any warranty issues with the truck that could be questionably related, they will work with me. That, and they have been good to me on the other mods I have had done. It also has the Trail Boss lift with an extra inch to level the front, new wheels with 35X11.50R20 Ridge Grapplers and it has Road Armor Stealth bumpers on the front and rear. I am excited for the the outcome!
  17. This might be a dumb question... Should I have the Chevy dealer use my tablet to do the tuning with the HP Tuners software loaded on it to make sure I retain ownership of the credits and the tune? Or, does that really matter?
  18. Thank you for the replies. My hope was for a HD steel or aluminum replacement that is similar to a standard tailgate liner that could be Line-X'd. Diamond plate is often brittle and fairly thin in my experience. The plastic liner already looks like crap...
  19. Has anyone found a heavy duty metal tailgate liner to replace the plastic skin on the inner part of tailgate? The cheap plastic isn’t what I want there.
  20. You can do a bolt on cat-back from any of 25 (or more) companies. I chose Borla. Took a couple of hours last weekend, but I bought the dual exhaust set up so I had to cut the OE setup off right near the cats. This type of mod is easy to do in your own driveway.
  21. I appreciate the candor! Was there something wrong with the kit? They stipulate on their website that their tune will only work with the mildest of upgrades and anything further than a cat-back exhaust will need to be tuned locally. All I have is a Borla cat-back and I'm not looking to do more than the supercharger. I hope I have no issues...
