Victory Red Thread

Recommended Posts

Love this color! It really ticks me off that GM doesn't have Victory Red (Red Hot as its now called) available in High Country trim with the color matched bumpers.... this would make a sweet package!

2015 Silverado WT1 in Victory Red. Lund soft roll up tonneau cover. Go-Rhino 3" stainless step bars. Line-X premium bed liner. Same material sprayed in the rear wheel wells. Valueguard rustproof and undercoat. Weathertech drip rails. 4.3 Ecotec3 V-6. 6 speed automatic. 3.23 open differential. Window tint and some seam sealer in a few spots is up next. Then work on getting the tail down to earth. After that...we'll see. Old and broke makes a short project list.

Here's my 13. Just took moldings off, and ordered black Silverado emblems and a black z71 decal.

2015 WT1 

(2/8/2019)

 

Mild lower and blacked out wheel wells makes the factory silver wheels pop and brings the factory tire size visually to proportion. De-bagged. Paint correction. 3M clear paint protection over the nose. Lund soft bed cover. Line-X box liner and bed mat. Tail gate shock. Weather Tech in channel window visors. 3M ceramic window tint. Darkest legal at each position with 6" black visor. Rhino step bar on lower custom mounts. Weather Tech no drill flaps. GM box corner protection. Bed rail plugs. Carbon Fiber plate frames. Hotter whiter halogen low beams.   

 

Inside rubber backed mechanics seat protection covers for the gray cloth seating and black carpet type floor mats. Lots of towels covering most everything Rex would shed hair on. Linear Logic Scan Gauge II. Scotch Guard. 

 

Motor modification: Splicing a custom thermostat housing into the upper hose and running a standard mouse motor 54 mm Stant 180 F thermostat keeps things over 25 F cooler. Ran a K & N drop in for awhile until OA showed increased silicon levels. 

 

Trans mod was to reverse the thermostatic bypass valve "pill" effectively bypassing it completely. PML 8 quart ribbed alloy pan. Black BBQ coating. Quicker winter warmup and lower summer running temperatures.  

 

All three holes run Red Line Lubricants and WIX XP or NAPA Platinum filters (same filter different box).  

 

Suspension: King OEM remote reservoir front coil overs running softer 600# 3.5" O.D. X 13"  King springs and Bell -2" drop spindles. MOOG extended camber/castor cams. Out back is a set of King OEM remote reservoir shocks controlling custom Deaver leaves with the spacers removed and Deaver custom hardware hanging in Sulastic isolation hangers. Custom valving by Filthy Motorsports.  Front 1" + lower. Rear almost 4" lower. Alignment by Deegans Garage, Sycamore Illinois. 

 

Yes I posted above on this page but seems I've lost my photos and couldn't edit it.
