Thinking about adding 2 or 3 small leds in the ram air hood scoop. Guy on another forum did it on a Silverado but this is the only one I have seen.
May be too many since I added running board lights though...
Good Afternoon fellow 6.2L enthusiasts.
I apologize if this sounds like a commercial or a rant. I just like to share what I've experienced and discovered.
So, I don't know about you, but I've been searching for a way to cram more air into my L86 that won't break the bank. I've done hours upon hours looking for the perfect bolt on's or practices that will help the block breath deeper.
I've learned that swapping intake manifolds are not worth it however, porting makes it one bad ass manifold. (which i've done)
I threw on an AFE CAI and that really helped get the air moving. (momentum GT pro 5R)
Headers and a bigger full exhaust helps get the flow rolling. (I'm rocking TSP 1 7/8 Headers with a 3.5" full exhaust (catted with Cal Cats) and a Flowmaster Pro series Muffler)
Cylinder Heads and a Cam shaft will transform your truck. (going with TSP Heads and a Trick Performance Cam package)
And a basic tune wakes these bad boys up. (local dyno-tuner)
That being said after the above you're looking anywhere between 430-530 HP N/A. Obviously the Cam specs are going to swing that number.
Now, The one thing that I have NOT been able to find is a Larger Throttle body that will fit the L86 Stock Manifold. So I did what most have done and ported that sucker out. The only issue is it will never be larger than 87mm. Until this came along.
FYI slight modification is required to the stock Manifold. You need to shave the base of the Vacuum port as well as the MAP sensor base for the frame to fit. Once that is done you're rocking.
I was able to Port match the TB Bore to the manifold inlet and smooth out the transition. Honestly I can immediately feel the difference. When I get a little bandwidth I will throw on some videos of Cold/warm starts, take offs etc.
If you have any questions feel free to reach out!
Just curious if anyone has the same issue I've been having. So on the very first shift of the day from 3-4 my trans seems to slip into gear. After the initial run through the gears it shifts great every single time after that. I have real basic stuff done to my 14 Sierra..cold air intake, cat back exhaust and blackbear tune (yes the trans was tuned). It really seems to be temperature related because it gradually got worse the colder the nights get (I live in the northeast). And no matter how long I let the truck warm up before I drive it, it does the slip but only 1 time. Not sure if this is also related but the tuner said the torque converter locks after the shift into 4th gear.
I have a 2018 GMC Sierra 1500 Denali. I just installed the 2” Rough Country front leveling kit. I couldn’t do the 2.5” because my truck has the stamped control arms. The rear of my truck still has about a 1.5” lift/rake compared to the front that I am sure is caused by the rear lift blocks since it is 4WD. Can I remove the rear blocks safely? Or will it cause any damage to my Magneride suspension? What are my options to lower the rear to match the front of my truck now?
