  1. Awesome work, looks excellent. Now you just need to get some videos of it in action!
  2. I agree with what Matt said above, I would start with a simple compression test and make sure you have decent compression in the cylinder. I also agree that there is a high chance it could be just an electrical connection to the coil pack. Let us know what you find!
  3. If you just want the power functions to work just run a 12v constant fused wire to the heavy gauge orange wire on the SS seat and connect the black large wire to a ground connection. It will be the same for both the driver and passenger seat.

    Cayenne Can't

    That was a great overtake! Sounds awesome.
  5. Congrats that's quite a few! You've got me beat!
  6. So have you turned the key yet? Pics look great, I'm looking forward to seeing it in person!
  7. You will need a new Flexplate, bolts and Spacer from say a 2004 Chevy 2500HD pickup to put the 4L80E in your truck weather it is 4WD, AWD or 2WD the spacer is needed for all variations of the 4L80.
  8. Yikes, don't like to see threads like this! I think you have come to the right conclusion, somehow the internal transmission cooler in your radiator must be leaking into the coolant. Not a good situation! I would get a new radiator installed and have both the transmission and cooling systems cleaned out/flushed. If your good with comfortable working on it the radiator is really easy to change with basic hand tools, drain pans, ect. Hope you can get that solved qucikly and I would not recommend driving anywhere with it like that to prevent transmission damage.
  9. I had the same problem with my truck two years ago or so, except for the headlight issue. It is related to your underhood fuse block. I pressure washed my engine bay, inner fenders, underhood fuse block and wow was that a mistake. Truck would always try and start itself as soon as you turned on the key. My fix was to put a fan blowing on the relay/fuse box with the plastics removed and after two nights in the garage it fixed the problem. Basiclly the water gets inside and below where the fuses and relays are and makes connections across things like the starter relay. Hopefully this helps you out.
  10. Looks like it's coming together! Keep up the good work.
  11. See post #2 I have pictures/measurements of where the emblems are placed. http://www.silveradoss.com/forums/topic/58347-replacing-ss-emblems-need-measurements/
  12. Unbelievable to see how many of these trucks get stolen and ruined by thief's. Just kills me every time I see another. You did luck out, they did not take the cladding brackets, door handles, mirrors, and most of the interior! Assuming the drive train still runs fine, you could always get one of these fiberglass kits and have it painted and install it back on there. Probably would be the cheapest fix short of finding OEM cladding. Good luck with your project.
  13. The stock cats flow pretty good from what I can tell. Most people only replace cats when they fail with a universal fit cat like what you linked to. The best upgrade would be swapping over to long tubes and catted connection pipes! So unless yours are giving you major problems I wouldn't bother changing them.
