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
This is a brand new 2.8 inch (71.12 mm) 6-rib pulley that I have to take a loss on. I installed it, turned on the engine, threw the belt, and realized that the offset was wrong for my blower (which meant this pulley stuck out too far and misaligned my belt). Oh well, can't dwell over it, just gotta sell it. So yes, this pulley has ZERO miles on it.
If you don't know about GripTec pulleys, here is the link to the one I am selling. Basically, the ribs and grooves are roughed up like sandpaper so there is less belt slip, less knock, and more boost.

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?
I've got a 2015 sierra slt 4x4 with a P1X procharger setup on it and I'm currently running NGK 6510 iridium spark plugs. I'm constantly having issues out of the spark plugs when I build boost it starts missing, the boost is blowing the spark off the plugs a little causing it to miss on the top end because it isnt grounding out properly. Just looking for a good copper/nickel plug recommendation around the same heat range that mine are, I'm tired of these plugs and can't seem to find any that will work. Thanks!
