    This applies to all vehicles...not just Chevy.

    Honestly guys, what is the point of those huge, loud exhaust pipes? Especially the ones that sound like there's water in them. The U.S. has enough noise pollution with subwoofer bass and now more noise.

    The reason neighborhoods are not zoned commercial is to keep a sense of quiet and calm which we all need after a stressful work day. Now, I can't walk outside without hearing a neighbor's truck roaring by sounding like a dump truck or eighteen-wheeler.

    And it's now constant, all day, all night. I'm starting to hole up in my house on the weekends even though the noise comes through the walls.

    Why can't STEALTH become a new thing on vehicles? This has affected so many lives in a negative way now. The sounds of nature are a thing of the past in my life.
  • does any one know the cheapest most reliable way to make a 4.8 beat a lightning? who has done it and what mods do you have. I have a 2003 4 door 4.8 arrival blue ss clone. ARE intake, magnaflow exaust, and super chips programer and i removed the MAF screen. The truck only runs in the low 15's now.

    Forget it unless you are willing to add a supercharger and NoS.
  • Well the ford does have a supercharger wich came factory , cant believe chevy never done it to keep up. and i have thought of a supercharger along with the dry nitrios added.

  • What is the price range I'm lookin at for a body lift done at a shop?

    Why would anyone want to lift a 4x2???

    Just curious.
  • Just for looks and I wanna put bigger tires on...no mountains in L.A. But seriously, do you really think every lifted truck you see is a 4x4???
  • jreaganjreagan Posts: 285
    Yep, here in Minnesota they are.
  • Cool...More a necessity there. I lived in Oregon for a while so I know what you mean.

    I was cruising the Outlaw Power website for and intake system to get better MPG for my Silverado. They said customers report a solid 1 mpg improvement and even more power and torque as a bonus. The link to the intake system for our trucks is here: http://www.outlawpower.com/productdetail.php?sc=1274 They are ARB 50 State Legal too.

    Well, I found this cool dyno video of the new Super Duty, it's good to know what we are up against at a stop light :) http://www.outlawpower.com/productdetail.php?sc=1474 The dyno video is at the BOTTOM of the page.

    First of all

    Ditch the Hypertech. Deprogram your truck and sell the hypertech on ebay. Then, go to Westers garage for a replacement PCM. Leaps and bounds better than a hypertech.........truct me, i did it and will never look back. This Westers guy is amazing. The install takes 20 minutes and is so worth it I can't say it enough

    Beyond that, As far as taking out a Lightning, you WILL need to supercharge your chevy absolutely..........or have twin turbos installed. Pulleys, Cold air intake, headers, 3 inch exhaust, a new cam, lower it for better wind resistance profile. After that, its just tiny steps to get you where you want to be. Whether you can take a lightning after that is up in the air. Maybe, maybe not. A shift kit is essential also. If you are looking to run a quarter or thereabouts, replacing the Z71 gear with a 4.10 will get you running. it will kill your mileage but its better than the stock 3.73 for your purpose.

    I've read of people working an exhaust with a shortcut that is manually enacted. Basically, when you want to run, bypass the cats and the muffler and the 7 feet of exhaust piping. Its just a simple install upstream of the cats that can open on demand. Makes your [non-permissible content removed] loud as all getout but will make your truck run like a scalded ape

    beyond all that, good luck brother................if you fall short, you can look into better heads and consider a valvetrain that won't burn out on you after a few runs. You are at a disadvantage if you have the 4.8. Obviously the 6.0 is the way to go and the 5.3 is also a better option to start with. You can bore the 4.8 out. But after doing all this, make sure you have someone that understands how to repair your truck and that you trust not to take you for a ride if you know what I mean

    goodluck, and you better have deep pockets

    I did a search on seat covers, and have another question. I have an '07 3500 w/ leather seats. I'm gonna cry like a baby the first time I get into the truck when wet/sandy/muddy after hunting/fishing. I'd like seat covers that are really waterproof; are any mass-produced, or do I see a customizer? Will sheep skin covers do OK if I am not absolutely saturated? Can/should you put waterproof covers over leather, or does the leather need to breath? (I know: Shoulda stuck w/ cloth!) Thanks. john

    I have an 06 Z-71 silverado with the 5.3HO. It has 12k on it. I tried putting an S&B cold air intake, Jet chip stage one module, and Gibson dual exhaust. Power increase was nill and economy didn't get better either. Mileage got better after pulling the chip and intake. S&B cold air systems are a joke! I had to modify the intake tube, buy hardware, and use some of the factory tube seals because the kit was either incomplete or had incorrect hardware with it. If anyone wants this stuff let me know. I think I may have tranny and engine pcm issues.

    JK:
    Don't shed a single tear. Here is your solution. I purchased a pair of authentic GM made seat covers custom made just for the new Sierra. The quality is tops and they list for only $169. Your GMC parts man can order them and he should give you jobber cost on them. I think I paid about $141. plus tax. They are very handsome and even have a GMC logo. I first bought an aftermarket set and was not happy with the fit or the $225 price so I returned them. I found these covers and am very happy with them. The part number for buckets is 12499918, number for split bench is 12499928 By the way, GM also makes a fabulous set of black rubber floor mats (aka Weathertech) with the GMC logo in red. The part number is 12499644. They fit perfectly, stay put, and hold water and debris in the grooves. Enjoy your new baby!
    Here is what the narrative for the seat covers states: Seat Covers - Front Set - Bucket Seats (A95), GMC Logo, Ebony With Ebony- Upgrade your interior with these custom-fit engineered fabric seat covers. Available for bucket or bench seats, they're designed for exacting fit and luxurious feel. Fully tested for compatibility with Passenger Sensing System

    Im looking for a Tonneau Bed Cover for a 2007 silverado with extended cab and 8ft bed. Ive looked at Leer, snugtop, are, centry, and a few others.

    My truck is on order and should be in by the end of next week. When I ordered the truck the dealer told me that Chevy had a Tanneau bed lid that should be out 2 weeks from the when I ordered it. I ordered it 6 weeks ago. Now he tells me that Chevy still doesnt have the lid. The truck is useless to me without a bed lid. I need to carry Items in the back that cant get wet.

    If you know of anyone that has a bed lid for this truck please let me know.

    thanks

    Anyone had any experience with leveling the front end of a 2004 Silverado Z71?
    My torsion bars are maxed out. The torsion keys seem like an easy way to go but I hear they can cause front end problems.
