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 got my truck back from the shop after having the supercharger put on and when I totally pin the throttle I hear a loud squealing noise from mid cabin. The supercharger whine is awesome but gets drowned out by the squeal under full throttle. I had a truck before make that noise when the exhaust I put on was not clamped down right. It made me think of the flapper valve in the GM Borla exhaust I have and was wondering if that could be it. Its in the same area I hear the noise? The tune took off the cylinder deactivation so I no longer need the flapper. Any suggestions on the flapper? I was going to tack weld it open but wasn't sure if that would stop the noise and also thought about cutting out that piece of pipe and welding in a new piece.
I know [mention=118595]1SLOW1500[/mention] has dealt with several modded trucks. What do you think?
