So I have a question don’t get on me for being dumb just want other opinions.
I have a ls2 swapped rado bought the truck on a deal only problem was I couldn’t drive it for more than 20-30mins without getting trans hot on the dash and would go into limp mode but if you cut the engine off for a minute or two and cut it back on message went away for another 20-30mins but the actual trans temps never hit about 180
this is where it all starts.
anyway 1blown torque converter later and a trans rebuild my transmission guy told me the genius put a 2500 ecu in just to get the truck to fire up with a slight tune that pulled like a F****** freight train back to the point he tells me the truck thinks is has a 4l80 in it witch It doesn’t I have a 4l60 he said I needed to take it to a tuner shop asap so I don’t blow my trans or torque converter again because there’s a lot of major differences mainly being gear rations and shift points
witch I thought a tune would fix anyway but I wasn’t for sure so I got the truck tuned by Powerfab autosports and they reflashed the ecu programmed it and did a dyno tune
when I pick up the truck the dude shows me the power chart and the truck made 280hp 360tq
witch I think is way ****ing off but I am not a master mechanic I know a lot about vehicle but not enough to be firm on saying that’s bullshit
Why I needs y’all’s insight is because when the truck was ****ed up and giving trans hot display on dash the ****** was a ****** Ton faster and pulled a boat load harder the ass would squat the truck would drop a gear and scream so beautifully she would literally throw me back in my seat and keep in mind this is with 305/35/24s now it’s just feels like I have a slightly beefed up 4.8
engine mods are air intake long tube headers full exhaust trans cooler and that’s pretty much it as far as I’m aware
does anyone know or have any insight as to what is going on and why I am making such low numbers or where the **** my power went??
and I would appreciate no assholes just need some info thanks!
I need to add power to my power seats can I get ground and power from my audio system 🔊 and connect it to the pins on the seat plug to be able to get power and move the seat
Can anyone help? I have a 2016 diesel 2500HD and want to use the Upfitter X61A junction block - X7 plug/cable to run a lightbar.
I need to add my own switch to ground, to control the X7 power relays for switch 3. I have added for switch 3 the relay, 30amp and 5amp fuses in the X50A Fuse Block, installed the upfittter X7 plug and cable in the X61A Junction block. The wiring schematic for the upfitter relays Page 396, has the trigger as X5-pin 11, however when I check the pins of the X61A Junction block -X5 pin schematic on page 593 pin 11 is assigned to "Lane Departure signal". I need help finding the 85/86 relay wire to attach a ground switch.
Just a note: I plan on using pin 18 of the K9 Body control X5 plug as the ground. This should control the lightbar to only have power when the High Beam are on.
So I'm living out of my truck now while I save some funds to by a houseboat in San Diego. I just bought a cheap inverter from walmart to run my laptop and I'm wondering what implications this has for my battery. I have an ACDelco silver line (30 month) that's about a year old and has never had excessive drainage. So I guess my question is what exactly is the excessive drain limit? I mean is there a minimum voltage I should keep in mind to avoid premature battery failure. Obviously I want to avoid a no start condition. What voltage could that occur at? I'm just charging my laptop with it (130w charger) and am assuming running it while the engine is off is fine for a while. I tried to google and youtube for some answers but was inundated with garbage results so hopefully this question is fine here. Any other inverter related advice that might not be obvious to consider would be appreciated too. And inverter recommendations. I'm pretty sure this is a modified sine wave (cheap, Everstart plus 400w), are the true sine wave models worth it?
