    4.2L Turbo Build

    I would think it's much less work to add a turbo then doing an LS swap.

    NEED HELP Ignition Coils

    QUOTE="Mooseman, post: 583441, member: 6163"] What year is your truck? 02-05 bolts into the head deep into the plug well. Later years bolt into the valve cover. Mooseman, that's what I thought. Mine is an 03 and after doing more research, the coils do bolt into the head.

    NEED HELP Ignition Coils

    How thick is the valve cover in those spots? I thought of a Helicoil but I'm concerned about drilling all the way through. Looks like replacing the valve cover is a lot of work too.

    NEED HELP Ignition Coils

    I was cleaning my engine bay and I notice that 2 coils were loose. I tried to snug the bolts down but they're both stripped. How can I fix this problem?

    NEED HELP Exhaust drone

    That's what I was trying to figure out. Since the muffler installer was willing to replace the Magnaflow muffler under warranty for free, I decided to go that route. I still have the Magnaflow resonator and Y tol. The sound is still good but no drone inside the truck. It's not silent but I like...

    One question though, where is the muffler? Was It completely removed?

    NEED HELP Exhaust drone

    This us really getting close to solving my issue. Like I said before, I want to keep this muffler and resonator. I've received many many compliments on the sound of this system on the exterior. I will take a close look at your design MRRSM. I'll need to figure out a way to explain this to my...

    NEED HELP Exhaust drone

    MRRSM, that sounds like a great idea. How about a sketch? You know that old saying "a picture is worth a thousand words". Not only do I hear this horrid harmonic drone, I also feel the floor under my feet vibrate. I never expected any of this at all. This system is already installed so I'm...

    NEED HELP Exhaust drone

    Actually no, the drone was much louder without the resonator. This is also a Magnaflow resonator. If my calculations are correct, I would need a 36" "J" pipe if I would go that way. I wonder if covering the floor with soundproofing material and foaming in the pillars would silence the drone?

    NEED HELP Exhaust drone

    I just asked the guy at the custom exhaust place I went to to install a good sounding system. I'm not sure what size he installed or which Magnaflow model muffler either. It comes out the rear just beyond the rear muffler. Thanks MRRSM

    NEED HELP Exhaust drone

    Thanks for the quick replies guys. I'm not sure which Magnaflow muffler he installed. I'll try and remove the "Y" tip and go with a straight pipe from the Magnaflow resonator. Should I go with a larger diameter chrome tail piece? If this doesn't work, I'll have to try the "J" pipe. I also...

    NEED HELP Exhaust drone

    I just had a Magnaflow muffler installed and ran a straight pipe in place of the resonator into a "Y" tip. the drone was unbearable. I went back to the shop and had them install a Magnaflow resonator with the "Y" tip. It cut the drone down substantially but it's still there. It doesn't sound too...

    2003 trailblazer 4.2l I6 will not start with remote when cold

    They do. Tapping the brake pedal without the key in the ignition and turned on will cut the engine. How can I go around this?

    2003 trailblazer 4.2l I6 will not start with remote when cold

    Just an update here. Turns out that the problem wasn't the remote start unit at all but rather the rear LED running and brake lights. The wierd thing is that after the new remote start unit was installed, it worked fine for a week. Then it began not keeping the truck running after it stated...

    2003 trailblazer 4.2l I6 will not start with remote when cold

    It turned out to be the remote start unit that lost its settings when I pulled the fuse. I had to do a system reset (not an easy job) to get it working again. Thanks guys

    2003 trailblazer 4.2l I6 will not start with remote when cold

    No security light and I didn't check codes because it starts right up with the key. I wonder if this has something to do with me removing fuses to check continuity. It also starts with the remote after the tb warms up a bit ...... like when I start it with the key, let it run for a few minutes...

    2003 trailblazer 4.2l I6 will not start with remote when cold

    I recently did a visual inspection of all the fuses in the engine compartment because a check engine light showed a fuse issue. I replaced a bad cigarette lighter fuse and the check engine light turned off. Now the engine will not stay running when I use the remote start. It stars and dies...
