  1. Just installed s&b cai, and truck stalls out after start, when it doesnt it idles rough and sometimes kicks when starting to drive, it seems alot slower and is throwing me a check engine light please help! What do i do
  2. What's up Guys. Writing this to gain some knowledge from gear heads that are more educated then I am. I probably did all this backwards but available funds played a role in the sequence of my purchases. Below is the order and links to all purchased items. Diablo I3 Tuner- https://www.diablosport.com/intune-i3-performance-tuning/ Throttle Body Spacer- https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00IBV4K6A/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Cold air intake- https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00GP8FKGU/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Performance exhaust- https://www.magnaflow.com/products/12867-performance-muffler-magnaflow-5-round-straight-through-performance-muffler?variant=18434149384307 I started off by tuning it with the performance preset tune that is pre installed on the I-3. There is a total of 3 pre installed tunes based on Octane Level. I believe it was ( Eco, Mid, Performance). I set the Tire size + Soft Shift points. I DID not change the Speed limiter or Throttle Limiter. No other changes that were available were made. At the time is was happy because it basically got rid of the clunk when the transmission would shift at certain times upon quick on and off acceleration moments. Also the throttle response was much better. This was done somewhere around Sep of 2019. Next up was the Throttle body spacer and cold air intake. Both installed at the same time. At this point it turned into a completely different truck. I believe it cut the 0-60 down by about a second. I did notice hearing a higher amount of back pressure in the motor. It didn't seem to be enough for a concern. Also it seemed to not fall into V4 mode as much as in the past. Last was the exhaust, I had it professionally installed, They cut the 3rd Catalytic converter out added 2-1/2 pipe to approximately the same OE muffler location added the muffler a Y pipe and dual 2-1/2 pipes to (cowboy cut tips, Not that this matters). At this point I have to be pretty heavy on the accelerator to take off and its falling into V4 mode constantly. In my opinion exactly opposite when it should be. I went by a performance shop and asked some questions. they want me to pull the diablo tune and do a custom tune (Pay Me). They also mentioned there is an update for the I3 that allows you to turn off the V4 mode. When the guy connected the tuner in the truck after installing the update on the tuner from his shop PC he mentioned that it was asking for a new license purchase. " He couldn't do anything for me." I honestly was in to much of a hurry when I did the tune. I didn't really keep up with what all was going on during installing in the vehicle or even if I registered the product. Lesson learned. At this point I have contacted Diablo Sport via email awaiting a response. Basically just looking for advice on which way to go at this point. I'm currently on the fence about adding a leveling kit and after market rims and tires. Which in my mind would require another tune. Thank you ahead of time for any and all that take the time to respond.
  3. I had a great deal on buying my 2015 Silverado LT. It’s not what I wanted (V8, leather, 4WD, etc,) but I’m going to make it work! It’s a beautiful color and I added some black 20” rims and also painted the bowtie black. I have a few more mods I want to do with the lights and adding a backup camera, BUT what I want most is HP!!! I called the local speed shop and they told me there’s really nothing out there for the 4.3L and I wouldn’t be able to notice the small increase with a Cold Air Intke, Exhausts or programming..... Is this true? I mean a few extra (10-15) for each of those mods seems like it would add up? Can anyone give me some advice to get more HP without dropping the obvious V8 I’d love to have to begin with..... Thanks so much in advance! TomBrady80
  4. I am considering installing a Cold Air Induction System on my ZR2 with the GM's OEM part 8453531. In calling two local dealerships about purchasing the part, naturally they provided two different prices, I was implicitly told by both service departments that if the cold air induction system is not installed by the dealership, this particular item would void the factory warranty. When I questioned as to why, the service department representative, told me, items such as tires, shock, visors, and exterior add-ons and etc won't impact the warranty . But, this particular product because it involves electrical system and particularly the emissions system that it has to be installed by the dealer, otherwise it would void the warranty if the truck experiences engine, electrical or problems involving the emissions systems. Does anyone know specifically if these statements are true? I am actually surprised that if they aren't, that GM doesn't specifically conduct quality control and conduct random checks of the dealers for honesty. The two dealers in addition to cost of the cold air induction, more than $500, the installation charge exceeds $250 not including tax. Although one of the service techs bragged about claims of noticeable improvements in HP, Gas mileage and torque, he couldn't provide specific numbers with the exception of gas mileage which I can expect between 1-3 mpg improvements. I'm curious if he is simply attempting to sell a product which if I do purchase, I will be greatly disappointed if I don't get the improvement in HP, torque and mpg. Anyone have any facts that help me make the best decision?
  5. Welcome to my build! Started with a 2019 Silverado 1500 LTZ 4wd 5.3L, which I bought with 9k miles on her in August of 2020. Got a crazy good deal on it, justified me driving to Georgia from Houston to pick it up. It even came with the Ranch Hand front bumper on it already, other than that she was stock. Little bit of background on my past trucks, I've been fortunate to own quite a few: 07 JK Wrangler, 08 Silverado 1500 LT Z71, 2014 GMC Sierra 1500 SLT Z71, 2015 GMC Sierra 1500 SLT w/ 6.2L, 2016 Denali 2500 Duramax, 2017 Silverado 1500 LTZ Z71, and finally my 2019 Silverado 1500 LTZ Z71. I also have my 2015 ZL1 Camaro for a little bit of fun on the side, my wife has gone off to German side and is rocking her Porsche Cayenne. So here's the current list of mods: 4" Zone Lift kit w/ Fox rear shocks 35x11.50's Nitto Terra Grapplers on stock 20's Front and back Ranch Hand bumpers Hooker Blackheart Cat-back exhaust utilizing factory dual tips K&N Series 63 cold air intake Rough Country Automatic drop down steps Camlocker Tool box Front windows tinted to match back factory tint Front windshield tint strip Chevy All-Weather floor liners Stubby antenna Just went on a shopping spree of sorts and this is what I've got on order: Boost auto parts auto fog mod Putco Blade LED Tailgate Light Bar w/ Putco wiring harness All LED bulbs; replacing turn signals, license plate lights, and reverse lights. And the GRAND finale, King 2.5 PRS coilovers The list of things to come in the near future: High Country cluster from White Audio and Media, had their Tahoe cluster in my 2017 and it was fantastic! Waiting to order the rear King Resi PRS shocks until my checkbook bounces back a little bit. Lol Going to be putting on several LED light bars and maybe a pod or two, going to do my best to blend them into the Ranch Hands and make them as non conspicuous as possible. I'm strongly considering doing a Dyno tune w/ Kooks long tubes as well. Going to be doing ceramic tint all the way around. Limo on back windows and back glass, 15% on front windows, and 35% on the front windshield. I've got a drop in plastic bed liner that drives me crazy, so I'll more than likely go ahead and get the bed sprayed. Things I'm considering: Looking into changing up the rims and trying to clear 37's when the time comes for new tires. Blacking out the badges? Still not sold on this one... Turbo or a supercharger kit? This one would be way down the line though. Anything else that catches my attention, let me know if you can come up with anything! Here is the truck from stock:
  6. Hello everyone. I hope I'm in the right place as this is my first post! Today I purchased a 2018 GMC Sierra SLT Premium Plus with the eAssist package, and it arrives next week. I went back and forth between that and the All Terrain and landed on the Premium Plus with eAssist. As soon as I got home this evening I started accessory shopping. As I'm about to purchase a K&N 77 cold air intake, I see that it says for all 5.3L models except the hybrid. From what I understand now (which the sales rep at the dealer didn't inform me of while purchasing), the eAssist package counts as the hybrid. Does anyone know why I can't use a cold air intake with this model?
  7. What do you guys think? It's not as loud as a full aftermarket exhaust would be but I think it sounds pretty good for the money I paid.
  8. I installed a Cold Air Inductions intake system on my truck and took it to a dyno to see if it made power... surprisingly it did lol...
  9. i own a 2018 e-assist silverado 5.3L. dont have an honest opinion yet of the hybrid feature but love the truck. i have a cat back exhaust with a flowmaster super 10, throttle body spacer and an air/oil seperator. what i want to add is a cold air intake but have been unable to to find one due to truck being an e-assist (mild hybrid). tried a K&N cold air intake but due to the radiator resovoir being in the way, the mandrel will not fit. On the GM PARTS online site, they have a performance intake (Performance Air Intake Upgrade, 5.3L Part Number: 84794977) that says it will fit my Gas/Electric truck. I went to order and later that day i recieved an email from a salesperson who stated that part may not fit and i should do research before buying. i cannot find anything online that says there is a cold air intake that will fit my truck. Has any E-Assist owners come across an air intake that fits or have installed the GM Part 84794977 sucessfully? Thanks
  10. Has anyone used this PSI Power Tuner or found where others have used this? I found the product on two different sites; the 2nd URL has better details on the product. I'm skeptical on this product, being that no other tuners have released products for the 3.0L Duramax (LM2). PSI Power 2020 3.0L Duramax Performance Module (Truck Edition) | Thoroughbred Diesel Agricultural Diesel PSI Power Module 2020 3.0L GM Duramax (parleysdieselperformance.com) Also, what about these two products? https://afepower.com/afe-power-50-70064t-momentum-hd-cold-air-intake-system-w-pro-10r-filter#overview https://afepower.com/afe-power-77-44014-scorcher-hd-module#overview And this? https://www.sbfilters.com/cold-air-intakes/silverado-sierra-1500-duramax-3-0-intake-75-5137?variant_id=712
  11. Banks Ram-Air® Intake System Dry Filter for 2015-2016 Chevy/GMC 2500/3500 6.6L Duramax, LML (Item # 42248-D) and a Banks AutoMind Tuner for the 2015-2016 Chevy/GMC 2500/3500 (Item # 66411). $275 each or $500 for both!
  12. Morning everyone, I installed a K&N cold air intake on my 2014 Silverado last night (5.3). Sounds great, throttle response has definitely improved. Two issues: My check engine light is now on, and my factory remote start no longer works. Any idea as to what might cause this? Any assistance would be much appreciated. Thank you, TB

  14. Hey guys and gals I was hoping y’all could answer a question of mine. I currently own a 2019 Silverado trail boss with the 5.3 and 6 speed transmission. A mechanic told me the transmission is a ticking time bomb if I do any performance mods. Such as a cam swap and tune. So I explained my plan for the future. Cold air intake, flow master exhaust, headers, tune and cam swap. He said if I do any of the big changes to the engine the tranny may go out. The reason why is because the stock transmission was only made to handle the stock HP and TQ. Have any of y’all had an issue like this after some big performance mods?
  15. Found this install video when searching around for any reviews on the CAI. Maybe helpful for someone. They are claiming ~15hp boost from the CAI, anyone install one yet? https://www.knfilters.com/cold-air-intakes/cars-and-trucks/63-3109-performance-air-intake-system
  16. I purchased and installed the Cold Air Intake for my 2019 GMC AT4 w/6.2L. Had to have dealership "Reflash" computer. They weren't supposed to charge, but they did. Haven't gotten anyone to call me back to explain. (Milford, CT Chevrolet/GMC). I drive hard and fast. I'm only getting 12-14mpg! 15.5 best hwy during 3k mile trek from WA state to CT. I know have 4,700mi. Put air intake after I got to CT. I have stock 20" w/All Terrain Goodyears. I'm looking to put a cab high bed topper on this Dark Sky Metallic truck. Any ideas? I'd like to level it like I did my 2018 LTZ, but with it already has a 2" lift, and I'm not sure who can do it or supply me with the parts? Lastly, Why The Heck does Chevy/GMC Trucks not have a locking gas cap?!?! My 2015 C7 Vette does! With Proximity sensor push to open!!! $70k and no locking gas cap. I don't care about gas thieves. I care about gas tank vandals!!!!
  17. So back in a GM truck since the 2003 YukieXL got adopted in 2012. Got the SRado and 19 mpg around town after the generic (folks dog em out so I been going with knockoffs and with CAD today they’re pretty good. Truck doesn’t know.) makes the AFm not as noticeable and seriously 19 mpg in a truck combined . Never got better than 13.9 in my 5.7 Ram. Gonna go with cat back next...maybe tune. Read every post before I attempted to get into bed through firewall to continue the Audio upgrade. My link has possibilities...AppleCare play upgrade or the Alpine head swap if budget ever can handle. Going through the big grommet is too much work guys so the little grommet under the drivers door hinge...15 minutes and pull the grommet back in the hole a snap. I got some pics so hope the show. Went with a BBox down firing dual 10 box. Only issue is where to mount the Amp and audiocontrol LC2i . Raising seat or on back wall seems intensive unless using expensive Alpine bass kit but little room unless front of box. Better weather would motivate me to pull back seat out and build a suspension mount like Alpine does. Trying to use set up from previous sled...save some dough. It’s DablueSmooth now but forgot my new password so musical names for next 30 days. Pictures are too big or failing to load from the iPad ...I’ll post from phone
  18. I just installed the S&B Cold Air Intake is it is awesome. I have noticed better throttle response especially in situations like rolling on the throttle after taking turns at intersections. Previously the motor bogged down in those situations but now it comes alive.
  19. First post here but wanted everyone to know before they too get screwed by their power train warranty. I have A 2015 gmc 1500 Denali 6.2 and have had transmission problems after about 10000 miles or so . I have taken it in and asked to have the transmission looked at with nothing but “can’t find a problem “ from service. I installed a k and n dry synthetic intake to my truck after about 15,000 miles(I have about 50k now). Took my truck in about 7months ago due to the transmission hitting hard throughout gears. When i take the car out of park into reverse there is a hard knock and a decent jolt. Sometimes when driving it and getting onto a freeway the gas pedal does not work then kicks in after a few seconds (pretty scary ). Another issue is if I give it gas in 4th or 5th it revs high then I feel like I and being rear ended and then the truck moves. This is crazy that this is happening. The dealership did a reprogramming of the transmission and 7 months I take it back they pull it apart and find pieces of the clutch in the bottom of the transmission pan. They call me today and tell me that the aftermarket CAI is the cause of the problem. They say the mass air flow censor is covered in oil from the air filters oil? My air filter is a dry synthetic filter just wash with water and air dry so I call their bullshit. They then call me back and say they looked into the filter I own and it is a dry filter and there was no oil on it. Wow wtf. They bullshit their way out of everything. Just wanted people to know when they have this problem be one step ahead of them and keep your stock air intake . It is absolutely absurd to say my clutch is coming apart in my transmission because of a aftermarket air intake. They are also not honoring the warranty and want me to pay $4480 for a new trans. This will probably be my last gm car ever.
  20. Its the latest, the greatest, my new 2018 GMC Sierra 1500 SLT! Lifted at the dealership 4 and a half inches with Toyo A/T 295/60/20 tires. I also added the cold air intake with the dual cat back exhaust. I decided to go with the Pedal master to improve engine response. So how does it drive? Like a truck supposed to! Typical learning curve on the computer so its still trying to understand what I did, I wish I could program it but the boys at the dealership have warranty concerns so...Comments, Concerns, or just general feedback is appreciated. Welcome me to the forum. I'm Ken in Arizona.
