I'm still on the fence for the entire platform. I got really excited about the Z06 having had one years ago.. but I sat in a stingray and my biggest complaint was the plastic roof. Felt like 1/4" cheap plexi roof. aside from that.. the tech specs on the z06's motor seemed less impressive than the ol...

That really sucks. I've always wanted it but cost was prohibitive. Especially since I already have PPE tuning. Now I've got a new 4094 w/ billet wheel and I NEED it.... I tried to upgrade but apparently I had the autotap+efilive setup not V1. So that was nixed. Buying used doesn't sound like a good ...

I just jack one side up and get in the truck and see if I can drive off the stand. .

My G80 held up to 600+ hp for 185k then started to click click click click if you got on it hard from a stop.. It's a trutrac now. ;)

Cleaning leather/vinyl seats and trim

I got a tip to use scrubbing bubbles and they weren't kidding.. If you use like a finger brush lightly then wipe off the product, no joke it'll remove everything and get rid of shiney used leather.. all the gunk, black, brown nasty crap GONE. I wouldn't do this often.. like once 100k... But I bought...

fwiw I've had merchant's kit in there for some 60k+ Miles and I'm just over 180k now with no failures.. Driven like it's stolen since 0 MI.

Good quality part - Wouldn't be surprised if PPE's was Merchant's anyways.. Quite a few of PPE's items are other folks..

you could ship them to jethot but I've never been wealthy enough to justify it. they also sell precoated headers too, in the popular brands.

I'm curious to see the results. I want to build an LML duramax to replace the LBZ.. Be nice to coat everything and see how much friction and heat I can reduce.

Probably need to pull the fuse in the driver side interior fuse panel. It runs the door chimes and gauges. If there is any data on the bus it will lock up... In my case locked the ECU and I had to restore to factory and pull fuse, re program a tune again.

The part # is on rock auto. The legit ones are the most expensive, in my case $140 for fronts. If they squeek/squeel, Not sure if you read the threads here or even on dieselplace about squeeky brakes. Relating to rusted or non-greased sliders. In some cases worn/dry slider bolts. If they are clean a...

The rears didn't wear heavier on mine but could be because the SSBC's. The stocks would go 200k no doubt.. i dont know what they're made of but they barely eat rotors and they wear extremely slowly.. Mine were cracked though, so regardless needed changing. Most of the guys on the diesel sites run st...

the proportioning is done in the ABS module based on engine load and some other factors. I think mainly the fronts do all the work anyways. I'd like upgraded rear calipers but I dont want to fork over another grand for them..haha.. Actually I was looking to see if I could simply get the larger rotor...

Does anyone have experience with Wagner Thermoquiets?

I've got a set on the MAX.. I replaced them under warranty in Feb... Bought them in April? '11. They were cracked all 4. (front only) I'm pretty sure I've over heated them again to the point where I had brake fade. The only reason I can think that the front's don't hold up well is I have SSBC calipe...
