  2. Love the truck. My first SS. 05 AWD. I lowered it, put 24's on it, BTR stage 2 cam, trunnion kit, push rods and lot of other stuff. It had .660 valve springs, headers and intake. Feels like it has a shift kit but not sure. I ordered a speed engineering exhaust but wont be available for a few weeks. Waiting a bit to get it tuned. I'm not sure what else I want to do. I think I'm going with AutoCal V3 Tuning System from Black Bear performance I work from home so its doesnt get drove much. Currently somewhat stock exhaust with gutted cats and flowmaster muffler.

  4. Back together! Aside from the rear bumper I didn't have time to put on. First I POR15'd the brackets for the cladding Made sure to test fit everything before I drill any holes I felt bad drilling into these nice clean rockers haha But I did make sure to spray lots of rust proofing in the holes even though it will never see salt All riveted back on Back together! ?? backed it out of the garage to see if outside

  6. Long time no updates! Just have been enjoying the truck! It is put away for the winter to I intend to do a few things to it. First of which is a Trans cool 40k cooler which I installed yesterday. So much bigger than the stock cooler Also looks super cool behind the grille!

  7. Update. I got the Black Bear Performance EFILive AutoCal. Black Bear tuned it and made a huge difference. They did a great Job with the tuning. Then I installed the full speed engineering dual 3" exhaust with headers. Hated it ! Tooo loud and lost major low end torque. I changed it up using a single 3" pipe and much happier with the sound vs dual 3"s. Still lost some low end torque but I have no cats now and it is flowing way more then the previous exhaust. Put in bigger injectors recommended after the tune to help the stage 2 cam. Waiting on Black Bear Performance to help me get it re-tuned. The current tune is not liking the 42Lb marine injectors at all or the exhaust swap.

  8. Hey everyone! It's been YEARS since I've been on the forum. So I guess I'll reintroduce myself lol. I've got a 2004 SSS that I bought new. I've lowered it and put on an exhaust but that's all for performance mods. Recently I installed a Retrax tonneau cover and Yakima Overhaul rack system. Hoping to get more active in the forum since I've got the mod bug again.

  11. As I was replying to another thread here, i was searching through my virtual pile of SS related photos and thought I would dredge up a few of the funny ones. Some of these I photo shopped myself. 1) I seem to recall somebody with a Red SS wanted more bass in their stereo, so I put in a bigger sub for him 2) Not sure why I did the riced out version of the SS, but it was funny looking. 3) The Lemon Fresh oil if from the internet. 4) It must be a bit hot where this guy lives. 5) Dual Radix super charger. Had a bit of fun photo shopping my single Radix in to two ;D 6) Ash all over my SS from a brush fire long ago (Southern California). 7) And we all know that Joseph was a carpenter, so he needed a fast truck to get around, that is why he had as SS.

  17. Due to an over popular cam spec requesting this is a new cam help guide and posting. If you want to review the cams here, feel free and ask all you'd like in this post. Want a cam recomdation or have a question on a specific cam, just post it in here. Info for cams needed is... Year of truck: Model: Trans: Converter: Gear: Tires: List of current mods: Possible future mods: Goals for truck: Uses of the truck: Cam list: Comp Cams: XR259HR...206/212 .515/.522 112LSA. Great cam for a stock truck looking to make big low rpm torque and use a stock torque converter. Better suited to a 4.8L or very mild 5.3L. Recomended torque converter would be no more than a 3000 for a 4.8L or 5.3L and stock or 2600 for a 6.0L. Recomended valve springs would be LS6 GM springs. XR265HR...212/218 .522/.529 114LSA. Great cam for a stock truck using stock truck exhaust manifolds and either a stock converter or low rpm stall. In a 4.8L or 5.3L I'd recomend a 2600 to 3000 stall. In a 6.0L I'd recomend a stock or 2600 stall, but the 2600 would be better suited to the job. Recomended valve springs would be GM LS6 springs. XR269HR...216/220 .525/.532 114LSA Decent cam for a bolt on type truck running shorty headers or long tubes. Stock manifolds could be used, but headers would be a bigger gain at this point. For a 4.8L this is a fairly agressive cam and I'd recomend at least a 2800 to 3200 stall. For a 5.3L and 6.0L a 2600 to 3000 stall would do the job nicely. This cam isn't really recomended for gains with it's low lift and bigger duration. Other than great valve spring life there isn't much reason to run it. Recomended valve springs would be LS6 springs. XR273HR...220/224 .530/.534 112LSA Decent cam for an LQ9 for someone worried about valve spring life. With this much duration and this low of lift I just wouldn't recomend it as a choice for any application. XR277HR...224/228 .534/.537 112LSA Agressive cam for duration and LSA. Not enough lift to make it worth recomending at this duration. XR265HR...212/218 .558/.563 115LSA Very nice cam for a truck with mild exhaust upgrades. Not a recomended cam for a 4.8L or 5.3L as this much split with the small intake valves isn't the way to go. For a 6.0L this cam makes for a nice and mild dail driver with very little lope at idle. Stock converter can be used, but a 2600 stall is recomended. This cam can also be used with a blower or nitrous with decent results. Recomended valve springs would be LS6 spring or Comp 918. XR275HR...222/224 .566/.568 112LSA Very strong cam for a naturally asperated setup. In a 4.8L you'll need a 3000 to 3400 stall. In a 5.3L you'll need a 2600 minimum and best results at 3000 stall. With a 6.0L I'd recomend a 2600 to 3000 stall depending on how agressive you want the launch. This is a very good cam for torque in the middle rpm range. Recomended to use shorty headers or long tubes. You may also need an injector upgrade at this point. With good tuning the idle will be a bit choppy, but yet still very streetable and will make for a nice daily driver with some bite. Not recomended for nitrous or Supercharger. Recomended springs are LS6 springs or 918's. XR281HR...228/230 .571/.573 112LSA Very strong cam for a naturally asperated setup. Not recomended for a 4.8L or 5.3L. An L33 5.3L H.O. could run this cam with it's increased compression, but would require a 3200 to 3600 stall to be happy with it's results. In a 6.0L I would only recomend this for an LQ9 with it's increased compression and it could be ran with less stall due to it's cubes and compression. In an LQ9 I'd recomend long tube headers, LS6 or Fast style intake, and larger injectors. I'd recomend a 2800 to 3400 stall behind an LQ9 with this cam. Idle even tuned in perfectly will be choppy and will make for a decent daily driver as long as you aren't in heavy traffic. Not recomended for supercharger or nitrous. Recomended springs would be 918's. XER273HR...224/230 .581/.591 114LSA Very similar power band to the XR281HR, except with a better idle and better drivability. I would not recomend this for anything smaller than a 6.0L either. Recomended to run a shorty or long tube header. Larger injectors will be needed. I'd recomend a 2600 to 3000 stall for this cam. If it is well tuned in the idle is lopey, but not unacceptable for a daily driver. This cam will also work ok with L92 style cylinder heads. It happens to be one of the cams that Livernois has chosen for it's L92 package. Will work nicely with nitrous or a blower. MP122 or bigger for Magnacharger or D1SC for Procharger. Recomended springs would be 918's or 921's. XER281HR...232/234 .595/.598 112LSA Pretty much a cam built for no smaller than a 6.0L. If you want to run a cam like this you'll want more than the stock compression of an LQ9. I'd say no less than 10.5:1 compression. You'll also want a car intake for this rpm range. With a 6.0L you'll want a 3200 stall or higher. This cam is better suited to bigger inch such as 6.7L and bigger. Not recomended for boost or juice. Recomended springs would be 921's or Partriot Dual Gold's. XER287HR...238/240 .605/.609 112LSA If you want to run this with a 6.0L, shoot for 11:1 compression or higher, a stall of 3600 or higher, 1 7/8 headers, and a Fast intake. This would make for a nice agressive cam in a 6.7L or bigger that can still be daily driven. More cubes of course wouldn't require as much stall. Recomended springs would be Patriot Dual Golds. Texas Speed: Thunder Racing: Trick Flow: TFS-30602001...216/220 .560/.560 114LSA TFS-30602002...220/224 .575/.575 112LSA TFS-30602003...228/230 .585/.585 112LSA Still updating...

  18. Hello everyone, I'm here across the world working in Saudi Arabia and stumbled upon a 1995 Chevy Suburban 2500 4x4 with a beautiful red Lingerfelter engine. The Suburban has only 31,000 miles and is almost perfect on the inside, but shows signs of old age and sun fading in some areas on the outside. I was wondering.. is it worth shipping back to the US and selling it there, or that is not worth the trouble?... Thanks for your thoughts...

  19. It has been a long time since I've been an active participant on this site, but I have come back as I feel that my truck could be most appreciated here. I am looking to sell my 2003 Red SS with currently 80,055 miles on it, I bought it as a leftover in April of 2004. It is clean with no body rust, garaged pretty much it's whole life except for a most of a year when I was building. Mostly stock, besides painting the grills black, tinted windows and a bedrug. I've probably averaged 1500 miles a year in the past 5 years and it is time to update it to something that I can use to tow, I've only used this once to launch a buddies freshwater boat. It has a couple of flaws that I think are pretty minor, I just have never gotten to fixing them, a small scrape on the edge of the front bumper, a couple of very small dings/scuffs nothing major. The oil pressure gauge hasn't worked in years and the tranny temp gauge followed suit awhile back, I'm assuming it is just the senders. It has lead a relatively pampered life so I didn't really worry about them. I believe the Carfax shows an issue when it was brand new, someone smashed the driver's side window when it was on the dealer's lot. I would say wear and tear is pretty normal on the interior for it's age. If someone is interested in it and wants a video I am willing to do that or a FaceTime as well. I am in southern Maine. Alan

  22. I have been a lurker on this forum on and off over the years and finally decided to join. I am the original owner of a Black 2004 AWD SS. It's just about 100% stock except for replacing old fogged headlamps. The only other mod I've done is to install an ARE hard bed cover and do spray on bedliner - both of which were done when new. The truck spent most of it's life in Texas even though I bought it in Jacksonville and now I'm back in Jax. It was my daily driver for about 5 years then I started driving sports cars as my daily ride. Right now I've got a Jeep Wrangler (2 door with a 6 speed) as my daily driver. Since I only drive it occasionally, it only has 138K miles on it. I keep thinking about selling the SS but when I look at new trucks, I don't see anything I like better than the SS.

  24. Hey everyone, my name is Mason and I’m from Texas but moved about a year ago to Denver, CO. I purchased a 2002 GMC Sierra Denali quadrasteer with a supercharger and 90k mikes a little over a year ago. About six months ago after a trip up flagstaff road my transmission gave out on me and since I love this truck I decided to do a 4L80e swap which has been a very long and relatively costly mission. I can contribute almost all of my success to these forums even though I never interacted until now that I am looking for someone to segment swap for me. Just wanted to say hello and thanks to everyone that makes this a great source as well as a bit about my truck.

  26. Well, if you have the budget, I can highly recommend a supercharger I have had the Magnacharger Radix on my truck since new and it really wakes up the truck. I think they don't make this exact Radix now, but a redesigned version is on their website.

  27. Hi Richard, i did follow your thread on the rebuilt of this intimidator and the silver birch you got for your wife. In regards this intimidator you have done a beautiful job bringing her back to life. this is a great example of what a rebuilt should be, you did NOT hesitate on putting money and quality work into it. There is an intimidator for sale in virginia beach with 98,000 miles and certificate. I live in California and thats 2,750 miles away from my home. I want it, but the drive is too much for me. I would have to fly to Norfolk, Va and drive it back and i don’t think it’s a good idea, i can do Texas though :)..
