MORE to come. I need to get the final tune with the new block. Still runs very well on the old 6.2 tune however, going up to 7.0 adds a layer of goofy on vacuum or under boost..
Next steps Get the PATC Stage 4 transmission kit stuffed into my 6L80E and retune to 900+ whp! Hoping to have that underway around March!
Let me know what you all think. Ask any question. I'm open to where I purchased parts, cost of build etc. especially my opinion getting into a build like this.
So i know that the 99 body style is similar up through like 08, however i wanna see if the 5.3l is the same throughout, im looking at one that specifies 04-06 and im wondering if theres a huge difference to deter me from purchasing and using it
Im also curious at how to generally create power, my engine compartment is bone stock outside of a k&n air filter, partially cause thats how i bought it and partially because im a beginner and im a little nervous about ruining it as it is my daily, however im coming into some money and am going to purchase a new daily and turn this into more of a project
Thanks for the help in advance
My dad passed away in march, i am keeping his truck. He bought it new and loved it to death. it is a 2008 1500 ext cab. It has 78,000 original miles, 2 wheel drive. I live in pennsylvania and he stored it every winter so it never saw salt (big deal for up here). He didn't want to go over board with it in fear of ruining it. so all that's down is a superchips program, flowmaster exhaust and k&n cai. I was thinking about taking it a bit further and dropping a supercharger kit from summit, borla exhaust, and lowering kit. I have never really hot rodded a truck, nor do i have the cash flow to go nuts. I was just thinking something he would of liked but not overboard. I was wondering if anyone has done this, and what did they think.
Thanks for the help
(I searched the forum to no good answer)
My 2015 CCSB 4WD Silverado 1500 L86 6.2L has about 65,000 miles on the clock. I’m considering replacing the spark plugs and wires during my next maintenance day. It is not missing, but the idle isn’t as smooth as it has been, it might have a tiny pause upon acceleration. I’m pretty conscientious regarding maintenance and have serviced the intake/fuel system regularly, so this seems like a logical progression in scheduled maintenance. No big engine mods done, intake and a muffler is about all.
1. Is it appropriate at this mileage and hours/age?
2. Which products have you used and why.
3. Costs and potential bargains.
4. Tips or Tricks to make the process easier or provide a better outcome.
thanks for your input and sharing your experience. If you recommend parts, try and include parts numbers.
Thank you, Dark.
