  1. BG Products

    The dealer here did our 2016 Suburban for $100 and I supplied the 16qts of AMSOIL ATL fluid. They hooked it up to the machine like stated above where the vehicle transmission does all the work. The equipment they hooked up basically just holds the clean fluid in a bladder and the old fluid gets pumped into a bladder on top of the new fluid bladder. This helps keep pressure on the new fluid so the transmission pump can pull it out.
  2. Quadrasteer to Regular Straight Axle

    I have no info on this but did you look at YouTube? I don’t think it would be hard to do. Is the axle bad? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  3. From what I have been told there is a 2" lift kit that you can purchase from GM now to have installed on your new 2019 truck. The kit includes the necessary programing to the electric power steering and to reconfigure the front camera module. So at least now those that want to put a small lift on their truck and still have it covered under warranty can do so. Just not sure on what size tires you can go with. Probably nothing bigger than what is now offered on the Trail Boss and AT4.

  7. 0/20 oil spec?

    To me it is more about CAFE then anything. The fact that we have 8 qt sumps and the Camaro has 10qt sumps, they are compensating for the fuel dilution with a larger sump. As for shear. It depends on the oil used. I'm able to run 15k miles on our 2016 Suburban running AMSOIL's Signature Series 0w-20. Used oil analysis results say it is safe to that point. So for me it is more on CAFE than anything. I'm sure the engineers have factored it in on the design of the oil system since it is just more than a pump and a relief valve and is controlled by the ECM now to work with AFM and in some engines VVT.
  8. Mixing isn't an issue with the same brand oil like what you are doing. Even mixing the same brand with like a qt of 0w-20 and maybe a 5qt container of 5w-30 isn't going to cause any problems.
  9. Ceramic coating paint protection

    I'm getting mine done next week. They are going to do the paint correction, then apply the film on the front, then do the ceramic coat.
  10. The Resonance Free Pipe (RFP) takes the place of a traditional resonator with much less weight and bulk. Some vehicle applications however still use resonators. An RFP works by venting a small amount of gas through the mesh in the pipe to break up standing waves which cause resonance in longer pipe sections. One tuning valve is used on the 5.3L L84 and two tuning valves are used on the 6.2L L87.
  11. Alcohol sensor

    Are you saying you already have a yellow gas cap? If so then you already have a flex fuel vehicle and don't need to do anything. If you want to get more out of using E85 then a tune for it will improve performance.
  12. Fuel additive/cleaner for DI?

    E85 will clean up the combustion chamber but do nothing for the back side of the valves since these engines are DI. Now for non DI engines it can clean up the back of the valves as well.
  13. Fuel additive/cleaner for DI?

    AMSOIL's Power Foam is another product that you can use to clean the intake system.
  14. Well here it is people. My dyno run of my 2019 Silverado with 6.2 before I installed the GM Performance intake. Then I installed the intake and had the dealer do the flash to the truck that is part of the intake purchase. Back to the dyno to see if what gains it might have made. Well, to my surprise it lost HP. The baseline was 363.13 max hp and 414.74 peak torque. After the intake install and flash it went down to 355.75hp and 399.12 peak torque. One thing to note is that with the 10sp transmission, they had a hard time keeping it in 6th gear when they hit the throttle. It wanted to downshift even though they were using manual mode. Also another issue was it was reaching the speed limit of 106mph and cutting off with in seconds of going WOT. To bad there isn't anyway of turning off the speedlimiter on these. They did 10 pulls trying to get a solid run. The guy really was trying and wanted to keep going but there were other vehicles slotted to use the dyno so he ran out of time. So it seems that there isn't a gain, at least for me putting on the GM Performance intake. Bummer really. Sounds nice but stinks that it lost power and torque.
  15. Flex Fuel Conversion

    With the sensor in and the FF table enabled you can run what ever fuel you want and the system will adjust according to the amount of ethanol in the system. The reason for the sensor. So if you ran several tanks of 93 then it would adjust for that fuel. If you mixed then it would adjust for that. If you ran straight E85 then it would adjust for that and what BB set up the tune for to take advantage of the FF. Basically once you installed the sensor and let BB do their thing you can run what ever fuel you want and take advantage of it all. No worries.

    This shop doesn't have the access,, they use EFI live. They turned off Stabilitrac and traction control on the truck. Here is info on them, National Speed
  17. Black02Silverado's 2019 Silverado

    OK, I can't promise much on how much I will be posting but will try to do my best for this thread. I ordered my 2019 on 10/31/18 and it was delivered to the dealer on 1/24/19 and I picked it up 1/28/19. Mileage at delivery was 9 miles on the odometer. So far to me this truck is very nice. But then I'm coming from a 2002 LT Silverado Z71. The 6.2 is a brute and the 10 sp is smooth as can be. 1. Dealer removed the HC badges on the front fenders. 2. I removed the one on the tail gate and going to remove the Silverado as well. Looking at putting the black lettered Silverado on as well as the black 6.2L on the hood and taking the chrome off. 3. Removed the factory "wheel to wheel" running boards. They are for sale, asking $700 they have 50 miles on them. 4. Installed the off road steps, GM part number 84538235. I like them and they are about 15lbs lighter than the HC I took off. 5. Installed LED bulbs for the license plate lights. 6. Programmed the Home Link. Super easy to do. Planned 1. Install the GM cold air intake system. I want to put the truck on a dyno as is and get a base line, then install the CAI and see what changes, then have the dealer flash the ECM to see if that makes a difference since that is part of the kit and included in the price. Just have to see what the cost of the dyno runs will be whether it is worth the cost to find out. 2. Get the front side windows ceramic tinted and then put the clear solar ceramic tint on the everything else but the windshield. Also a strip across the front windshield. Why GM didn't have that tinted on a HC is beyond me. 3. Install a dash cam. Still looking at cam's, undecided as to which one to get, so many out there. 4. At 1,000 miles will change out the front and rear diff fluid for AMSOIL Severe Gear as well as the T-case for AMSOIL ATL fluid. No replacement fluid from AMSOIL for the transmission, I'm sure it will be a matter of time and one will come out. 5. When these tires need to be replaced, my bank account should have recovered from the truck purchase by then, I'll look at new wheels and tires. 6. I want to paint correct and ceramic coat. On the fence about doing it myself or having it done. I have been quoted $2,750 total to do the truck and wheels. 7, Also want to get black door handles. 8. Looking at having the side chrome window trim wrapped since it is riveted on, would be a pain to remove and replace.
  18. Dyno run before CIA install and after results

    I would think it needs to relearn. The fact that I disconnected the battery, per the GM instructions on installation of the CAI, It might have reset the ECM and have to relearn all over again. So that is why, if I can make it happen in a few weeks head back down for another pull to see if anything changes.
  19. Black02Silverado's 2019 Silverado

    Well like I stated, they had a hard time getting the truck to stay in gear and not kick down when he when on the throttle. Also had a hard time since once he got it to where he could proceed it ran out of speed do to the speed limited to 106. Until these can be tuned, not much can be done, not even able to disable all that. I plan on taking it back in about 2k miles, since the truck has only 2,800 on it total at this test. That way it should have gotten a good relearn by then. So we will see. As far as the flat spot, not sure other than like I said he tried to feather the throttle to keep it from kicking down a gear even though it was in manual mode. Oh and another note, this thing didn't like being on a dyno. The way GM has everything connected now. It threw the usual codes for stabilitrac, and traction control issues and anti-lock brake control. It didn't like the fact that only the back wheels were spinning.
  20. Dyno run before CIA install and after results

    Just the intake. Waiting on Corsa to come out with theirs.

  22. What did you do with your truck/shop today

    Replaced my DRL housings. They finally went south and started to collect water. Found Dorman for $15 each. Couldn't beat that so I got them and installed today. Looks much better.
  23. Our OLM on the 2016 Suburban is set to 7,500 miles when it reaches 0%. Everytime, no matter how it is driven. We went on a long road trip, 14 hours to Baton Rouge and then back, right at 2,500 miles of driving time on the interstate and the OLM was down to 0% when we got back, I checked the miles and it was 7,500 since the last change. Following the OLM is a good rule. Do a tire rotation at the same time and then change out the wiper blades at every other oil change. Keeps things simple.
  24. Anyone use Driven branded oil?

    One thing to remember is high zinc is not good for a street run vehicles with CATs. Granted it would take a while to poison them but why risk it. Now if you don't have any CATs on your truck then you wouldn't have to worry. Also, just because it is good for racing doesn't mean daily driven vehicles can benefit the same. Remember race vehicles get oil changed after every race for most purposes. Also short distance trips and such when you don't get the vehicle up to temp comes to play. This oil isn't designed for the average daily or weekend driven vehicle. Just food for thought.
