I’m looking for any information on swapping gen3 5.3 With a gen4 controller (I want to use the 6L80e transmission.) I know the knock sensors are in the valley cover and it has the 24x reluctor and 1x cam sensor. I’ve heard it is possible to relocate the knock sensors to where they are on gen 4 block and swap reluctors and cams to work with the gen 4 controller, does anyone have any experience with actually doing so?
This is my first time posting in this forum!!
Just bought a DiabloSport Itune I3 Platinum Programmer.
I am looking for some decisive direction as well as suggestions on the best parameters for tuning my truck with the I3 Platinum.
Specs of Truck:
2014 Silverado Z71 LTZ 2WD Crew Cab
Rough Country leveling kit installed
33" x 12.5" x 22" Nitto Terra Grappler G2 A/T tires
5.3L Ecotec flex engine
K & N Cold Air Intake installed
Gentle 46k miles
I RUN 93 OCTANE IN THIS TRUCK
Being a 2 wheel drive (It Does have the Z71 package, Rancho shocks, etc...) Obviously it raked in the front.
First thing I did was put the K&N CAI on and it was like a rocket in Manual 5 gear mode, when I shifted through the gears myself.
After leveling kit and 33's with aggressive tread, it was complete garbage. No power, confused shift points, almost like missing. Just a hot mess.
So I bought the Intune I3 first, rather than switching to a 4.10 gear (which I may do later).
Already turned off AFM and that was immediately effective. Also, 15% throttle boost.
Can anyone suggest the best parameters to make this bad boy get up and GO!!??
I would like to know if there is a good idea on what ECM and TCM adjustments should be made to not only get that stock power back on 33's. But also get good fuel economy.
The standard Diablo Flex, Jammer and 91 tunes don't seem to help a whole lot. Still bogs down and takes forever to get through 1st and 2nd gear. Anybody know about these tuners on a 14 Silverado with 33's?!?!?!
I have an RX Speedworks catch can that i had installed on my 2016 Sierra. It attaches using the bolt for the brake fluid. Has the clean side separator that I used as well but not included in the pics but can provide more pics upon request. Will work on other vehicles. My price is obo shipped. TIA. https://www.rxspeedworks.com/product/gmc-sierra-oil-catch-can/
Ok so here is my problem! I'm new here so hopefully I can get this rite lol!!
I have a 2004 suburban 5.3 vortec 2wheel drive!
170,XXX miles on it. I've owned it for about a year now. Always took care of it. Truck is very nice and well kept up!
So here is my issue. I was sitting in my buddy's driveway last nite talking for a min when I noticed a knock coming about! I mentioned it to him but we thought maybe it was just the AC compressor or something.( Noise was light at this time) so we think nothing of it continue to talk and I noticed it getting louder! So I get out and I swear it was a rod knock from in pan so I leave go home (about a mile away) shut it off stop for the night and tow it to my shop this morning... I drop the pan pulled all rod caps and checked the bearings then pulled all the main caps and checked those as well!! THEY LOOK GREAT! so now I go to the oil that I drained out of it prior to dropping the pan there is gold flakes of metal in my oil! So I keep looking to find that looking up between the crank I can see the cam shaft and I can see a lobe is shot!! So now I'm gonna put lifters and a new cam.... Now here is my question where did the gold flakes come from? As far as I know gold flakes are from a bad bearing correct???? But I don't have a bad bearing I have a bad lobe on my cam and a bad lifter!!! Would the bad cam lead to a bad cam bearing?? HELP ME PLEASEEEE
