  1. Review? They suck. Simple as that. You can also fit a 305/45R22 on your truck without modification. Just to give you a few more options.
  2. I have absolutely no interest in the Colorado/Canyon or any other mid size pickup. It's not part of my inquiry. All I'm looking for is official 0-60 & 1/4 mile times for the 2022 2.7l vs 5.3l Silverado in the same body/chassis configurations. -
  3. This is not true with modern engines using modern lubricants. Cars from the 80's yes, 90's yes, but engines and lubricants have come a long way since then. So much so, that reliability and longevity has almost become an irrelevant discussion. -
  4. That's just a youtubber. Youtube performance reviews are all over the place for every vehicle. I'm looking for something more professional, controlled, and accurate like a Car & Driver or MotorTrend review/comparison. -
  5. The new 2.7l has 47 lbft more than the 5.3l (430vs383) and at a lower rpm with a flatter torque curve. The HP is 310 (2.7l) vs 355 (5.3l).
  6. Has absolutely nothing to do with wanting a truck that's a race car. I want to see how the new HO 2.7l stacks up against the 5.3l and 0-60 and 1/4 mile times are a benchmark for doing so.
  7. Has anyone seen official 0-60 and 1/4 mile times for the new 2022 HO (430 tq) 2.7l vs the. 2022 5.3l? But based on the same spec trucks like crew cab short bed 4x4's. Not like an idiotic comparison of a 2wd single cab vs a 4x4 crew cab, etc.
  8. My solution was to put longer wheel studs on the driver side rear and use a 1/2" hub centric wheel spacer. Now it looks right by eye.
  9. GM's "acceptable" oil consumption guidelines is so high that it guarantees GM will never have to fix any engine.
  10. Now, if GM would put the 10spd behind the 2.7 it would be better all around. I am interested in the 2.7, but I will not buy until they package it with the 10spd. I have the 8spd, been there done that and done.
  11. Have you looked on Craigslist and FB marketplace in your area? I usually see them for around $300 like new all the time.
  12. But which flowmaster? They have mild to way too loud.
  13. Flowmaster 70 Series. Leave the flappers in place.
  14. Whoops, missed that part. I ran the power from the passenger side fuse box. I'm pretty sure I used micro2. I'll take a look later.
  15. Use F26 then. The dash cam barely uses any amperage.
  16. On a High Country? Maybe on a Trail Boss. In my opinion, Gloss Black calipers would compliment your truck perfectly.
  17. Fuel had to redesign a lot of their wheels to clear the 21 and up front caliper.
  18. Those are the correct lug nuts. They will work. I just use and recommend the ET (extended thread) version since you get lot more thread engagement.
  19. Post up some pics of those Michelins when you get them. That's a new size for them (305/45R22), and I am very interested in them myself.
  20. https://www.drivenproducts.com/products/m14x1-5-open-end-spline-tuner-et-lug-nut-for-aftermarket-wheels?variant=17381970051129
  21. Your not going to able to get the socket on them. The wheel lug holes are too narrow. Here is an example of what you need:
  22. You are going to need the spline style lug nuts for these. The OEM lugs won't fit. I went with open end spline ET (extended thread) lug nuts for mine. They will also allow you to run 3/8" spacers if needed.
  23. Yes. The 285/50R22 will fit the Non-TB/AT4 trucks with stock suspension. The 285/55R22 seem to become a problem for stock suspension. You can also fit 305/45R22 on stock suspension trucks. Just to give you some more options.
