  1. I have a 2003 Blue one with just under 90k miles and new engine at 62k miles just after I bought it. If I was to sell it (I have been toying with the idea), but I would need to get closer to $20k, maybe a bit more of less depending on the market. I have not offered it up officially yet. Just thinking about it. I have a 75 K5 2wd Blazer with a LQ4 in it and they keep competing for upgrades!
  2. Are you looking to stay within a certain price range? Jim
  3. Thought I would raise the question about anyone running the LSA supercharger on our trucks, since there are now kits out for our trucks that include the head to supercharger adapter plates for the cathedral port heads. I got the pleasure of driving a 2017 Chevy SS with the LSA supercharger and it was a pure adrenaline rush. It had a cam and a few other goodies and made 715 whp on E85. With kits for our trucks running as low as $4300, it might be a viable way to boost our trucks. Of course, I am not trying to take away anything from the Maggie, Whipple, or any other supercharger. Just curious to see if anyone had made plunge since the past posting in 2013.
  4. Thanks Shannon! I appreciate following up on this. I will definitely keep you guys in mind if I decided to go with the 2.3 Whipple. I might even consider some of the other brands or even the Procharger. Still trying to figure out if I want to invest in mine or move up to a 2014 or newer truck. Thanks again!
  5. Not sure if this is appropriate place or topic to post, but I will give it a shot. I was contemplating a supercharger for my SS and I would prefer the Whipple 2.9 Liter unit you see on the SS sedan and other direct injection LS engines. When doing internet searches, our SS trucks seem to only have the Whipple 2.3 liter unit max until I ran across a kit on Black Bear Performance website that says it is the 2.9 unit, but looks like the 2.3 in the picture. I have reached out to them on their website, but not heard back. I apologize to Black Bear if I am being impatient (in a good way I hope), but I thought I would make that inquiry here, hoping they might see the post or other SS owners might comment. Here is their link. Let me know your thoughts on whether this is the 2.9 or 2.3 liter unit. Their claim for HP and torque increase sure sound like a 2.9, but the pictures and part numbers would indicate 2.3. I sure hope it is the 2.9. http://store.blackbearperformance.com/Whipple-Superchargers-29L-TruckSUV--2003-2006-48L53L60L_p_1359.html
  6. Are you still looking for a blue SS?
  7. Do you have pics showing their condition?
  8. Here are some pictures. Still trying to decide if I want to hang on to it or sell. I currently have two 3 inch Dyomaxx Race Bullets that go into a 3 inch dual in/dual out Dynomaxx UltraFlo X. It then goes into my original y-pipe and tailpipe combo. The y-pipe portion had to be broke down and reclocked so the pipes were horizontal to line up with the UltraFlo X out pipes. You probably remember that the stock muffler out pipes are cockeyed compared to horizontal as you can see in the pictures. Are you going to try and hook back up to your stock y-pipe/tailpipe combo?
  9. Just for my edification, were the 8.1 injectors the 36 or42 lb GM injectors? I have seen both referred to as 8.1 injectors. I currently have the GM 36 lb version in my SS and have been wondering if they will be big enough for a supercharger or if I will need to get bigger injectors. Thanks for any info you can offer. Jim
  10. I still have my stock muffler. I am not sure long the input and output pipes are. When we took it off, we tried to keep as much of the pipe intact of the mid and tail pipes. I will try to take some pics and then decide if I want to sell it. Jim
  11. Hey Travis,I am thinking about selling my blue SS. Not a done deal, but I thought I would at least test the waters. I am thinking about a new truck or a Chevy SS sedan, so my SS would have to go. Let me know and I can share more details. It is a really nice one, with 82k miles (20k on new GM installed long block due to catastrophic failure after possible oil pump issue). I am in the Tulsa area, so I am not too far away. Jim Reynolds Forgot to mention thoughts on price. I was going to advertise it for $22k with a little wiggle room depending on offers.Jim
  12. I had the Dynomax Ultra Flo X with turndowns. A really nice deep rumble, but it was a bit much for the highway. I recently took that off and put in Dynomax 3 inch race bullets (two) and ran them through my original tailpipe. Similar deep tone, but quitter on the highway due to the tailpipe I believe. I have a 1975 K5 2WD drive Blazer with a 6.0, long tubes, Brian Tooley cam running through 2.5 inch Flowmaster series 50 delta flows. Ran 40 series before that. The 40 series were more tinny than the Dynomax. The series 50 delta flows were deeper than the 40 series, but not as deep as the Dynomax. I wish my Dynomax were a tad quieter, but I still prefer over the flowmasters.
  13. Thanks for the input, especially on the fitment of the headers on our SS's. Please don't take this a me being argumentative, but are you sure about the ceramic coating flaking on stainless? I am an engineer by education and have a metallurgical engineer who sits next to me and I asked him a few questions. Stainless steels will rust over time, but way slower than mild carbon steels. I did some reading about the coating and most sites seem to recommend coating, even on stainless, and I didn't see any complaints about flaking. I wonder if surface prep is critical to avoid flaking or if these people have not had them long enough to see flaking. My turner just bought a set of Manzo 2 inch stainless steel long tubes for his G8 and he is sending them off for coating. I will keep researching for a good place to do coatings locally and see what they recommend. Like I said, please don't be offended. I just want to be sure and do the right thing, even if it is to leave them alone or buy a different set. I do like the price of the Speed Engineering components but want to have them last. Thanks again for the input. Jim
  14. Does anyone have any experience with Speed Engineering long tube headers and mid-pipes? The mid-pipes come with mufflers and turn downs, but I will likely stick with Dynomaxx race bullets and factory tailpipe for now or give them both a try for comparison. These are a more affordable header and mid-pipe combo over the ARH headers and mid-pipes, but I know that sometimes you get what you pay for. I currently have a custom tune, CAI, IAT breakout harness and sensor, and 36lb GM injectors. Thanks in advance for any input you guys can offer. Thanks!
  15. I talked with my G8 buddy who also owned a GTO with the LS2 cathedral port heads. He said the GTO guys have put on LS3 heads and intakes on their LS2 engines for years with an increase in power at lower RPMs with a smaller cam due to the increased flow. The L92 heads and intake should respond that way too. You will that small increase in compression as stated above. I hope that helps!
