  1. If you enjoy the higher rpm pull of the 6.2 then i would stick with it, if you want something that has some good bottom end grunt for towing gets good mileage then the 3.0 might be good? You will lose some passing power with the 3.0, but thats really the only time i am disappointed in the 3.0
  2. Your right, it was 1500 that they cut from the price back in September
  3. 3.0 is only about $1500 over the 5.3. And it has much better response than the lly you had. Its the lack of top end HP that he is talking about
  4. I hear what you are saying, but, i dont know what you are comparing to but mpg for me it is far better than my 14 5.3. The 3.0 really shines on highway at 60-65 mph. I agree the passing power isnt there but the 270hp told me that. I tow a small trailer pretty often and that is where it shines for me, gear searching is greatly reduced and the powertrain is far smoother imo than the gassers. Would i be happy with more top end power yes, but i knew what i was getting with the diesel. Im happy with it.
  5. All Hp and Tq numbers given by any manufacturer is engine numbers not rear wheel
  6. Well, legally you cannot change what is listed on your sticker. Heavier 8 or 10 ply tires help, air bags or some sort of overload help.
  7. I just let it idle for 5-10 minutes usually, lets the seats an steering wheel warm up, the engine doesnt warm up much until you drive it.
  8. Im averaging 19-20 right now during the winter in idaho. Warm up idle is really killing MPG and it being cold. I have a silverado with 2.5/2 lift and trailboss takeoffs, so pretty compareable. Id imagibe you will gain a little with more time to break in.
  9. I average 23-24 in the summer, its been about 20 this winter so far, but ive been pulling a small enclosed every weekend. Plus i have the 3.73 gears. I still average about 30 mpg on stricly highway at 55-60 mpg Sent from my SM-G973U using Tapatalk
  10. Ya what i was thinking too, i think i might trim the lip off Sent from my SM-G973U using Tapatalk
  11. I noticed that as well, between the mud flaps and the running boards a solid chunk of ice/snow build up. Not really sure what to do about it Sent from my SM-G973U using Tapatalk
  12. Anyone done one of the intakes for the duramax yet? Review? Sent from my SM-G973U using Tapatalk
  13. I get high 20s on the highway, 23ish with mixed driving around town, lost 1-2 mpg with a 2" lift. Sent from my SM-G973U using Tapatalk
  14. What arms are those? Sent from my SM-G973U using Tapatalk
