Bummer. Good news bad news - good news is the 2015 Tahoe I bought has a 12 bolt rear diff, which is much stronger than the 10 bolt. Bad news is, it's unsupported by the aftermarket. Can't get anything but a G80 locker for the rear. Wanted to put 3.73s with a Truetrac back there, but it's not going to happen.

Why 3.73s? The 3.08s in there now keep the engine too low in the powerband to cruise efficiently. It gets better mileage at 85MPH than at 65MPH. It has a hard time with hills. And, I'm about to make it worse. I need to put a lowering kit on it because the wife has a hard time getting in and out of it (handicapped) and the kits I'm looking at look like they will require larger than stock wheels. Since I don't like rubber band tires, that will mean even larger diameter tires. When it's all said and done I'll likely have the equivalent of a 3.42 rear end.

You sure it's a 12b?

I guess you're right.
It's an error in the Car-Parts description

Good news is that they make it in 3.73.
Bad news is that it's back ordered here:

Guess it's a popular conversion. Thanks though. Nice thing is I don't have to do it this minute.

Bleah, March in Oklahoma. Cold and wet. I've only been getting 1 day out of 5 when I can do anything outside. Can't wait till summertime when it only rains once every 3 months.

Might make for a fun project, like a go-cart or some tiny little car like a Miata or something.

Turbocharged inline 4, 272 HP@5500 RPM 295 LB-FT@3000 RPM, and what's neat about it (and what prompted me to post it) is it looks like they combined a turbo with a twin screw supercharger, calling it a twin screw turbo. I may be behind the times, but I've never seen anything like this one before.
