  1. getting a custom tune will be very noticeable...with TMGt and the PE delay a tune can feel like 50hp
  2. Good Day all! I used to be on this site for hours at a time and learned so much when the LQ9 was all the craze. I had a L92 Swapped AWS 2003 SSS that was stolen 2 years ago. sad times and I was truly going to walk away from performance cars... even my HPT was lost in the truck! So now I am coming back to see who is here and see if I can find out the info I need for my next project: Project Blue Turd. My kids named it sorry 2002 Blazer LS 2 WD 4.3/4L60e so I think dropping my extra LQ9 into it would be good tribute to all I learned on my SSS and also give me a new sleeper project...and after all the looks the SSS gets having something less flashy and more go'ie would be fun. -joe
  3. yes, it was almost stolen at target before...It was the 7 SS they stole from that parking lot. I parked for work, saw the guys casing the area and my sspider sence was going crazy but I was running late for a meeting at my new job, so I just push thru my gut instinct. came out after work and the truck was gone. Anyone have tips for getting the best value from the insurance company?? they offered me 12K...but that is not enough.
  4. we dont have emissions in MI. they ended up estimaiteing the mileage at under 100K, so they only got me for 15,000 miles
  5. Hello, dont visit here much anymore. But wanted to let you know my SSS was stolen 3 weeks ago. feel pretty shitty about it. Dealing with insurance now...any tips or advise in getting the best value for the truck?? I am having a hard time documenting mileage, or that is what the insurance company needs...anybody know how I might be able to document it having done all my own maintenance?? So if you see some silverado ss 15" vette brakes for sale...they are probably mine.
  6. yep, two piece rotors...not cheap update; not going to rebuild both caliper using the SS pistons, it was $130 EACH side...found a part from Harmonclassics (ZO6 caliper kit 170931868523) on ebay to rebuild one caliper, pistons, seals and dust boots for $79. So I will only have to rebuild one side and do pads on both. Still have to call Baer and upload pics...mudt have lost my ability to post pics when the demoted me from MOD
  7. So I was riding home and lost all brakes on the freeway...fun in after work traffic. Figured I lost maybe a line. Ran tbe rest of the stop signs home. Pull it apart and I shot a piston out of the caliper, lost a puck. Inside face of rotor is done, rotor is done! Been nursing this along since I got it, was scored and never really got a good mating of the pads and rotor. Dust boots. Carlson 41290, need a set for each side. $10 Caliper pistons. RBperformance. $138 Pads. Autozone wtf? Duralast DG1419. $59.99 Rotor surface. R-baer 136-6910312. L-136-6920312. $282.50 ea Total-773.95 Still trying to run down better deal on the rotors. The caliper pistons will be stainless and are better that be stock aluminum ones. Will post pics later.
  8. you need to list a price, it's a rule in the F/S section. I have seen them go from between $1000-$3000 gl with the sale
  9. the new dodge hellcat or what ever it is, is sweet. Powerful and cool to have the power unlocked with different keys. The new CTS-v is sweet too. I was hoping for a better GM truck showing but the new SUV's are nice (too expensive) The auto show is lame compared to the autorama. AWD FTW
  10. Forgot to mention I am running the stock muffler and have the corsa in the garage, it was on the loud side so I put the stock one back on to chill it out a bit.
  11. I am looking to sell my truck. Know it will find it's best new home from a place like this. It has under 70k miles. The mods are in my signature. It is a really clean truck with tasteful mods that bring the performance up and dont distract from the original look and style of the truck. This truck does not have either of the roof mounted horns (Onstar or XM radio) I have recently replaced a failing Throttle Body with a 90mm unit, a slight upgrade to the truck 87mm that I had been running. I recently replaced the Z06 Brake pads. I also replaced a wheel bearing that was bad. The tires are maybe 2 years old, bridgestone duelers. One owner, and babied! You can see alot of my life with the truck on here, it has been great but I drive alot more with my current job and am looking to get something different. Given it's age I would rate it outstanding, it has not been used and abused as a truck. The interior is very clean, non-smoker, no tear or rips in the seat, has always had rubber mats on the floor. The exterior is very clean, it does have a few dings (maybe one on each side). I will try to get some pics up but wanted to see if there is any interest here first then list it on Craigslist...worst case trade it in $15,000/best please PM me if you are interested. thanks -joe
  12. wow, very cool. GLWS. this seems like a decent deal for the parts you are getting.
  13. do you plan to make the down pipe two piece?? Kyle and Rick both seem to be using a 2 piece down pipe to make it easier to work on...man that looks great, I love "ulgy" turbo's. I say ulgy b/c that is what they called Allen's turck manifold kits, but they always seemed to run good cant wait to see it run and better yet get the fastest SSS !
  14. None of the parts you list are needed to upgrade your motor to a 427. Your fuel system and exhaust will be severely undersized for a 427.
  15. Does your radio lose the correct time? Radio preset? Might be another power issues?? Maybe your TAC box is going out??
