    Where to get SS Grille??

    So, I'm looking to swap to the SS grille, but don't want to pay $300 for a new one from GM. I can't seem to find them for the SS, aftermarket. Anybody know if there's any place to get aftermarket ones (or good used)?? I'm also not opposed to the LT grille, but by the time I get the grille and...

    When Did Your Fuel Pump Fail (or has it yet)??

    I've got a general question about how long fuel pumps last, these days. Used to always be that they failed around 140k miles, but I'm not sure that's the case on post-2000 vehicles. So the question is, when did your fuel pump fail, and/or what mileage is currently on your TB or other post-2000...

    '02 K2500HD 6.0 Idle Issues...

    OK, so my truck (2002 Chevy K2500HD 6.0L gas, NV4500) is having idling issues. It's just as easy as anything to quote what I posted on a fullsize site: So I got home from vacation and did a capture with HPTuners. See the following: Here's the startup. See RPM slowly find its way to...

    How to get Silicone Radiator Hoses to Seal?

    So I finally got around to putting on my Jetttstream radiator hoses, when I did the 100k maint. a couple weeks ago. The upper hose was really hard to get on (to the point that I lubricated it with some coolant), and it seals just fine on both ends with the stock spring clamp. The lower hose went...

    Buzzing during shifts when cold after tune?

    OK, so a question... '07 5.3L 4x4 SWB TB with 97k on the clock. I got a PCMforless tune a few months ago, got shift trim #2, and since then, any time it's below freezing, the first time I take off, during the 1-2, and the 2-3 shift, there's a buzzing sound like "weeeeeooo". It's lower pitch...

    Busy weekend for AJ and I!

    You'll all be happy to know that AJ (Hotness) has taken possession of the "Let's see if we can make a bumper" bumper (originally on Kyle's, then on Matt's), but it's... uh... Had some modifications... AJ also has a "Mikepeters" style tire carrier with a Hi-Lift mount. As of 9PM on Sunday...

    Well, I took the boards off the TB and put the spare in the cargo area, while we were in central VA (vacation all last week), and the wife and I took Friday afternoon and did one part of the trail that JamesDowning showed before. I took his map and circled in yellow the part that we did. We...

    Tekonsha Prodigy P3 Brake Controller Install How-To

    OK, this is the Tekonsha P3 brake controller install How-To with pictures that I did for the "Articles" section on the OS, several years ago, that hasn't been posted yet. I made it a PDF and hosted it on a friend's server. It doesn't look quite as nice as the web view layout (page breaks), but...

    Official Thread: CAN 5.3L SWB Scangauge Codes...

    OK, so there's surprisingly little information about this, so I thought I'd start a thread about it... This isn't really an engine mod or tune, and it isn't a transmission mod, though it monitors both... It's not an OEM issue, so it doesn't go there... Because of the lack of a "general" 5.3L...
