dieselfan1's 2018 Silverado build


Recommended Posts

Got some exhaust work done. 

Swapped the Borla S type muffler for a Flowmaster super 10. It's quite a bit louder but not too loud. Perfect.

Here's a 2 second sound clip cold start.

That's the biggest video I can upload

Okay you have about $400 left of that budget. See that envelope on the counter with my address on it?



How about another bottle of that Meguiars Ceramic you like ?

My next post here will be a recap of everything I've done to the truck since it was new.

That will be a long post.

BTW just turned 55,000 miles on it. 30,000 of that lifted.

Sad thing is, those handheld tuners don't really even change that much because they are just pre-built calibrations very specific changes to get a desired outcome.


They can help but still so much could be done if they were able to go in and change things after each specific gear change. Like shift speed/timing, pressures, on-coming clutch pressure presets, torque converter lockup settings.



Hey @CamGTP would something like the FlashPaq allow me to better tune the shifting? So that I'm not putting in a new transmission again, anytime soon?
