see I don't get that world record stuff with production trucks - I think the only reason it got that is because they didn't put a speed limiter in it. Period. You really think im on par with a an SRT10? hell no. a stock 4.8L w/ 4.10 gears and 32" tires and bolt ons with LS1edited features. i didnt m...

I'd put money on it, that it would hit 130/140.

My silverado has hit 152mph pin nailed down on 100mph, before i backed off (didn't feel like blowing a tire at that speed.)
granted - it took it a little while to get up there. vette did it in a blink.

I always ran synthetic in my '01. and around 35k when i switched out my gears & carrier. re replaced the seals then (said they were weeping) same thing with yours, you just got a...

I'd assume since it's 8 lug - they aren't as popular. Your vast majority of people who want the bigger wheels are buying base - LS models 1500 (tahoes and silvy's) which are 6 lug. There isn't THAT big a market for 8 lug 20's by comparison to 6 lug. Chevy just thinks its a work truck anyways..why fa...

a note on the gapping.

supercharged/ high compression = smaller gap

lower compression, N/A = bigger gap.

depends on coil and engine type too.
I experimented with this some on a v6 best was just stock gap... woopee. but idled better +/- ?

ignition boxes work like this... like they say about headers, intakes, exhaust "improves gas mileage!" depends how you drive it. Personally I've had 3 msd boxes. - depending on the vehicle, it will change the exhaust tone. It will lean the mix because you are actually getting a complete burn as it h...

Since its new.. and just a gear swap. You can look at about 250-350 per axle. + parts. on average. always depends on the shop. if its low-low price be careful. It is NOT easy to install gears, and 4.10s will whine normally (only gears that don't are factory GM and even then they still -can-) my rear...

Just curious what software you used to get those figures? On my 99' Tahoe I ran EFI Live v5 and i get + 15-19% LT fuel trims, about equal. (which assumes im running lean.) vs yours running rich and removing fuel. to me both are pretty extreme. I hope its just because EFI live was built more for Ls1 ...

autozone did that to me too. and often times the seal is not set right on the tube. Make sure you remove the OLD seal in the transmission too..... often times guys dont do this. or dont realize its a seal because its metal on the outside rubber inside. it can be a pain to remove if jammed in there a...

you need remove that bracket. Its got torx key bolts. A typical universal torx tool (multiple sizes) works great. Ive removed it 3x without any problems. you wont need to remove the y pipe just that bracket.
