PostForum: Side Garage   Posted: Fri Aug 31, 2018 5:23 pm   Subject: 37 MPG full size pick up.

Neat. I can see how it would be a smooth engine since each combustion event would put instantly opposing force on the block. But, I'm not going to get excited about it until there's been a few milli ...
PostForum: GM Performance Forum   Posted: Tue Aug 14, 2018 7:08 pm   Subject: 2003-2006 tail lights in a 2001

Working on refurbishing my mother's 2001 Silverado. The tail lights are a little rough looking, so since I need to replace them I was thinking of using the better looking 203-2006 all red lenses. I ...
PostForum: Side Garage   Posted: Thu Aug 09, 2018 8:36 pm   Subject: Concrete advice needed on wenching, I mean winching, please

Found some information. It looks like a single 1/2 inch diameter bolt 3.25 inches deep will support 2500lbs, a single 3/4 inch diameter bolt 3/25 inches deep will support 5000lbs. So, I should be go ...
PostForum: Side Garage   Posted: Thu Aug 09, 2018 3:20 pm   Subject: Concrete advice needed on wenching, I mean winching, please

No, I'd still need to remove the whole thing. I'm the sort that will trip repeatedly over a weave in the floor if it's more than half an inch or so. However, I'm not adverse to the idea of a larger ...

OK, I'll check with Home Despot then. On the angle, this wasn't something I thought about but, the shed is 30 feet deep and the winch will be mounted at the far end. And, the winch will only be at m ...

I need to install female concrete anchors into an existing 4 inch thick concrete floor with rebar that is about a year old. This will be installed the back of my workshed, so the environment is indoo ...
PostForum: GM Performance Forum   Posted: Mon Aug 06, 2018 12:16 pm   Subject: Hidden antenna

I dunno, but I miss them. I always found the windshield antennas to be plenty to keep the stereo playing.

Of course, NOW it occurs to me that the antenna is no longer mounted to the fender but ins ...

Gonna try this one.

BOSS Audio MRANT10 Weatherproof Marine Dipole Hideaway Antenna

Seems to have good reviews. I'll try and remember to report back on how well it works.
PostForum: GM Performance Forum   Posted: Sun Aug 05, 2018 2:24 pm   Subject: Hidden antenna

Working on a 2001 Silverado. Mom's truck, in the process of refurbishing it for her. Part of this involves painting the truck. I'd like to get rid of the fender antenna and put a hidden one in. An ...
PostForum: GM Performance Forum   Posted: Fri Aug 03, 2018 3:43 pm   Subject: Porosity Issues in High Pressure DieCasting of Engine Blocks

They could last quite a bit longer if they would be sensible and start making serial hybrids. We have everything in place for full electric except electrical energy generation and storage. Breeder r ...
PostForum: Side Garage   Posted: Wed Aug 01, 2018 8:56 pm   Subject: Normal Coolant Evaporation Rate with Recovery Tank?

I don't quite understand how setting the entire part uniformly under vacuum would draw the sealant into the porosity areas. I would more understand if certain areas of the part are under vacuum while ...
PostForum: Side Garage   Posted: Sun Jul 22, 2018 6:45 pm   Subject: Truck and camper question

It seems you are pretty set on a cabover slide-in. I've seen them with onboard terlets and outdoor showers, even saw one with a side slide-out. But, they do run about the same as bumper pull trailer ...
PostForum: Side Garage   Posted: Sat Jul 21, 2018 8:01 pm   Subject: Truck and camper question

I asked because if you were an anarchist, you'd be looking at something that can survive a nuclear blast so long as it didn't land on you. For that, you can get a military surplus rig. But, for some ...

What, if I may ask, is the reason you wish to live in a truck? The reasons you wish to do this will help on advise.
PostForum: GM Performance Forum   Posted: Mon Jun 04, 2018 11:41 am   Subject: New Silverado 310hp/348lb/ft 2.7 liter 4 cylinder engine

Nope, no interest. That engine would be suitable for an S10 sized truck, but not a full size. In fact, I really wish GM would bring back a 90s S10-sized truck.
PostForum: GM Performance Forum   Posted: Mon Jun 04, 2018 11:36 am   Subject: 98 chevy 2500 truck 5.7 vortec build

Welcome. There is plenty here on making a 5.7L go better. Look for the marine intake sticky thread. The Vortec's main failing is the built-in injectors that won't support much more than what the fa ...
PostForum: GM Performance Forum   Posted: Mon Jun 04, 2018 10:53 am   Subject: 2015 Tahoe rear gearing

Unfortunately I didn't note the pre-gear RPM at cruise, but 80MPH it sits around 2350RPM, in that range. It's all factory on tire size (Crapyear Assurance, 265/65R18, 31.5 inch diameter) and all that ...
PostForum: GM Performance Forum   Posted: Sun Jun 03, 2018 3:16 pm   Subject: 2015 Tahoe rear gearing

Now that I've run it a few weeks, I think that if I had to do it again I'd go with 3.73s. I just completed a 2500ish mile trip, and am glad to say that on the trip I was able to best my own personal ...
PostForum: GM Performance Forum   Posted: Sat May 12, 2018 3:46 pm   Subject: 2015 Tahoe rear gearing

The Engine Reduced Power error is gone now. I changed the top speed limiter to 240MPH. For some reason the computer allows for 314MPH but doesn't like it if you actually set it for 314. I calculate ...
PostForum: GM Performance Forum   Posted: Fri May 11, 2018 4:26 pm   Subject: 2015 Tahoe rear gearing

Dunno. Definitely faster than it was. I might make a run to the local drag strip on test and tune night to see how it does though.

Of course, I might not. Razz
