I am going to look at a 2001 Chevy Tahoe tomorrow that I think I can pickup for a pretty decent deal. He originally had it posted for $4500 and has been reducing the price slowly. I've been talking to him the last couple of days and I think I can pick it up around $3000 +/-. It's has a Magunson MP112 supercharger installed, all leather, 200K miles, and the body looks to be in excellent shape. The interior seems to be in fair condition, with some minor wear and tear. He said recently it threw a check engine light for a random misfire on cylinder number six at idle. He did a tune up on it thinking it was bad plugs/wires but it still is present. I talked to my buddy about it and he think's since it is only at idle, it's probably a lazy injector which I agree. It hasn't been for sale that long but I think the way he has it listed, it is hard to find so that's probably why someone hasn't picked it up yet. I found it by accident honestly lol.
Does this sound like a pretty decent deal if everything checks out? Also, is there an easy way to test the injector? I can bring a code reader from work but he seems like a pretty honest guy. The mileage doesn't really scare me if it has been maintained well. Hell my 2005 Silverado 1500 has 219K on the clock and I drive it everyday and wouldn't hesitate to take it anywhere. He also just had new tires put on which tells me he was planning on keeping it at least for a little while otherwise he wouldn't have wasted the funds for that. For me that is kind of a tell tale sign if it's a decent rig if someone is willing to spend the coin on some new skins for it. Reason for sale is supposedly to free up some cash. Let me know your thoughts, I'd sure appreciate it.
New to this whole forum thing so let's just get down to business. I have a 2015 Silverado 1500 with the L83 5.3L currently I have an Edelbrock E-Force 2300 stage 1 supercharger and Borla atak cat back exhaust. I have been researching all over and for the right camshaft size for my application (1/4 mile/street) and haven't really gotten anywhere. what Camshafts are performing well in these SIDI engines with superchargers? I'm aware that I would need stronger valves, springs, and most likely rods, I've heard great things from Texas speed and Comp Cams but I am not partial to either. once I do the Camswap I will also be looking into a smaller pulley and new injectors which I will also need feedback for. I'm currently running the SCT tune that came with the kit from Edelbrock but I'm sure it will not be adequate once I put in the new cams, smaller pulley, and injectors. ANY INPUT WILL HELP!!!!
Just recently picked up a 17' Sierra Denali with the 6.2L and I'm already thinking about a Exhaust, CAI, & Tune.
Kind of been eyeing up the SLP Stage 2 Performance Pack (http://www.slponline.com/product/620075--.html).
Has anyone else put this combo on there truck? If so, do you like it? Regret it? etc...
Any input is appreciated.

Just when you thought the sixth generation Camaro could not get any better, Chevrolet has announced that the high-performance ZL1 variation will make a return for MY-2017. Powered by a 640-horsepower supercharged LT4 6.2L V8 engine, the ZL1 will come in a customer's choice of a 6-speed manual or 10-speed automatic.
Our experience with the all new Camaro has been outstandingly positive. Just last fall, GM-Trucks.com drove a 2016 Camaro SS over 1,600 miles from Minneapolis to Salt Lake City in an epic road trip. The SS turned out to be a strikingly composed vehicle. In our time with the last generation Camaro ZL1, we were equally impressed but the vehicle's extra weight made it harder to control on the track. This generation is over 200-lbs lighter.
The all new ZL1 will dial this lighter generation pony car up to the proverbial "11". Specialized bodywork on the ZL1 improve aerodynamics and cooling. A larger front splitter, unique rockers, larger rear spoiler and wide front fenders are designed to keep the Camaro ZL1 stable at high speeds. A special "flow-tie" Chevrolet bowtie insignia is open to allow more airflow to the engine compartment.
Inside the ZL1 has standard Recaro front seats, a suede flat-bottom steering wheel, and suede shift knob. Chevrolet's performance data recorder (PDR) is also available.
The ZL1 also comes with unique 20-inch forged aluminum wheels with exclusive Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar tires [285/30ZR20 Front / 305/30ZR20 Rear]. Those huge tires will get help stopping with massive 15.35 inch rotors squeezed by six-piston Brembo brakes up front. 11-heat exchangers throughout the Camaro ZL1 make this four-person car track ready straight from the dealership.
Pricing and availability have yet to be announced.
