Might want to change your signature, it isn't a twin turbo but rather a single turbo 2.7L motor.

Oops! I had Ecoboost on the brain I guess. Thanks!

My latest 2.7T fuel economy numbers.....   400 mile AVG 29.1 mpg life of vehicle (11111.1 miles) 22.7 mpg

Well. Gals and Gents this topic was started for people who want to like or appreciate a new innovation. It will be a lot more fun to keep the negatives for another forum topic.   Yes it's a new engi

Thank you. You dissected something that made me recoil and need a beer.

Absolutely loving my 2.7 so far. Power is more than adequate and the economy is pretty darn good when you try to squeeze all you can out of a gallon. Took a little road trip to visit a cousin the other day, 30 mile one way, speed limit never more than 45mph, flat land and plenty traffic lights. Averaged a tad over 29 mpg according to the dic for a 25 mile stretch, And Averaged 20.5 on my last tank all suburban driving.

:wtf: I keep seeing this Bilstein koolaid. I have made the switch (after my stockers wore out nearly 70k later and miles of back country driving), the difference is slight and I can only imagine that much less so when only doing one end. I bet 9 out of 10 people if given the chance to ride back to back with only a rear shock change on stockers that are low miles at that would not be able to tell a difference. Even replacing all four when worn out the difference wasn't huge...

I find this hard to believe. I swapped just my rear at around 5,000 miles and the difference is definitely noticeable. My bed is almost always close to empty and that thing hopped around like mad. Now it doesn’t.

New 2022 2.7ho will have 420 lbft of torque,  72lbft bump! 

I seriously thought this was a joke. Can't believe how much they've improved this engine and I'm super jealous. However, my 2021 2.7L is good enough for my needs (especially given how hard it is to find a new truck). I hit the 5k mark and did my first oil change. 2.7L feels even smoother / slightly more powerful. Nice to see this type of innovation from GM. Will put pressure on all other manufacturers to step it up.

I thought about trading it in, but honestly I love my column shifter, the power is plenty, and I don't really want to lose money on the trade (or get yelled at by my wife), so I'm going to stick with my 2021.

 

Also, I'm probably one of the highest-mileage 2.7 owners out there at 17k miles, with a lifetime average of 22.5 mpg. I'm pretty freaking happy with that. I'm about to throw on a straight-through magnaflow muffler and a cold air intake so hopefully I squeeze out a little more mpgs or HP/torque.

I have the Afe CIA it’s pretty awesome. I wouldn’t do a muffler… try the CAI alone first it makes the engine sound pretty badass and the turbo louder.

Can anyone source the L3B part # and then the new L3B HO part #?  I have a 2022 LTD Custom Trail Boss on the way and dealer has no clue which I am going to see.  RPO is same but part #'s are different.
