  1. Man its crazy how far this thread got off topic. I actually opened it to see what people thought of the Stillen product. Then I found myself relating to all sides of the topic. I previously felt the same way about corvettes and that they were over priced for performance. But the weight difference between a corvette and a camaro gives the corvette a good half second advantage in the 1/4 right off the bat not to mention it gets better traction because of the near 50/50 weight ratio. And heck you can buy a loaded out camaro that costs well over the price of a corvette. So the price vs performance is not as big a gap as you would think. Which is originally what this whole debate was about. I fall in the camp spend your money anyway you want. I own a corvette and yes its fast (950 hp) but I drive my truck 90% of the time so why not buy the biggest engine and silly little upgrades to make it as quick as I can. I just hopped up the motor in my golf cart to make it faster just because its makes me smile to push on the gas pedal of most anything I drive and "feel the need for speed".
  2. Shouldn't be anything wrong with purchasing a used one. The price is good also. The only thing I could see that could cause a problem would be the clamps if they were over tightned. Even new exhaust clamps are not very expensive if you needed to replace one.
  3. Does anyone know what PIP stands for? I'm taking my truck in Monday for this issue.
  4. I have the afe vulcan exhaust on my 6.2. I pre-ordered it when it first came out. With the 4" mid pipe and 3" tail pipes it has a very deep tone to it. I really like the sound of it. You can definitely hear all of the dfm shenanigans going on though. It does have a little drone to it because of its low pitch. Sound is so subjective but I would say it has a mid range overall volume. It was a little louder than I wanted so I experimented with two 3" vibrant resonators in the tail pipes. It cut the dbs slightly and took a good bit of the dfm sounds out. It actually made the exhaust even deeper in tone so the slight drone was unchanged. Overall I like it but if hearing the dfm changes drive you crazy this might not be the exhaust for you unless you purchase a device to keep it in v8 mode all the time.
  5. From that picture the back does look lower than the front. Maybe drive it around a few days for the suspension to settle in to see how it looks. You could always raise it back up a little it you need to. I set mine on the 1.5" hole because I wS afraid the back might be lower than I wanted. I like having a little rake.
  6. Wow thats pretty dramatic. I figured a mpg or 2 but 5 is a lot. Hopefully they get it sorted out.
  7. Not that fuel mileage is a deal breaker but I am curious on how much mileage is effected with dfm turned off
  8. Its not hard to do. You loosen the u bolts that attach the rear end to the leaf springs. Then there is a bolt that goes right thru the middle of the leaf spring pack. Loosen that bolt and spin the shim from the fat part facing forward to it facing the back of the truck. Tighten everything back up and you are done.
  9. The problem with the new trucks is the hangers are not rivited on the frame like some of the old trucks so you can't put a dropped hanger on and keep the rear under the leaf spring. The only option is like what was stated above and do a flip kit which gives you 0 travel in the rear. You can do a flip and then do a 2" lifting shackle but you still have less than 2" of travel between the frame and rear end unless you do a c notch.
  10. What lowering components did you use? I'm assuming spindles in the front? I dig the wheels also. I had considered those last yr when I was in the market but they weren't in production yet. The rake is not that bad with the 2/2 drop. The back looks like it lowered more than 2".
  11. Someone posted about this a couple of weeks ago. They said the price was like $8800. I guess the tuning is what makes the price so high.
  12. this thread talks about the shims and has some pictures attached.
  13. I think I was the first to do the shim flip. I'm pretty sure it is a 2° shim. Post a picture of yours with the 2/2 drop. I have been wanting to drop the front of mine since day one but wasn't sure what the rake would look like.
  14. The biggest thing is that sound is subjective. Personally I don't like the tone of a muffler delete as much as having a muffler. That's just my personal preference I'm not knocking it some do like the sound. I think replacing the stock muffler with a brand muffler you like the sound of is one of the best bangs for your buck.
  15. $8700 for a Procharger is steep. It must be because of the cost of the tune. Did you run a centrifugal on the Yukon or a top mount?
