    just need to know

    Looks like the eBay rail you bought is from an 8.1l truck engine with 32# injectors. Looks like you will need marine injectors if you want plug and play. The rail also came from a latter truck with returnless fuel rail. Might be better if to look for an early truck rail, or a marine rail Sent from my HTC6545LVW using Tapatalk

    2500 with the 8.1

    That's what towed your wife's SSS to Houston. Ask Joe about it. Sent from my HTC6545LVW using Tapatalk

    Spraying nitrous on e85

    Yes. I've done it with good success. On e85 I lean out the fuel side a bit Sent from my HTC6545LVW using Tapatalk
  4. you need this https://www.radioshack.com/products/radioshack-1-8-stereo-panel-mount-phone-jack?variant=20332184005 adapter form radio shack, it has 5 pins to solder in. You then need to cut the three audio wires coming from the xm module. when an aux cable is plugged in, the xm feed will be cut out and your aux comes in, when you pull the aux cord out, the xm reconnects and you have XM again.

    2003 SSS Fuel Pressure Spec

    while your pressures are a little low, they are also with in spec. Have you calibrated your gauge to verify that its reading correctly??? I don't know if the dealer will perform the Crank Relearn Procedure, but it can be done by anyone with descent scanning software/hardware. I.E. EfIlive, HPtuners, Snap on solaris, Tech 2 and so on. it only takes a few minutes to complete. Id start there.

    2003 SSS Fuel Pressure Spec

    Base fuel pressure should be 58psi. You have a vacuum referenced fpr. So your final FP will be 58-vacuum. It sounds like you have normal operation. Has a cam position relearn completes on the truck after the engine install. It's important once a cam or engine is installed. Symptoms are just as describes. Sent from my HTC6545LVW using Tapatalk

    need input on pe tuning

    12.5 to 12.8 is a good target on good gas. Watch for lean kr. If you start to see it. Richen it up a bit. Also make sure your commanded and actual AFR match. If they don't. You need more tuning than just looking for a value on a wideband. Sent from my HTC6545LVW using Tapatalk
  9. Idle airflow. That's a big cam, you need big changes Sent from my HTC6545LVW using Tapatalk

    e85

    I have had good success with it. I also run it in my 8.1l truck. Even in n\a form it's a good difference. But there won't be much of a savings with the worse mileage. Sent from my HTC6545LVW using Tapatalk

    Aftermarket vs GM MAF Sensor - Any Real Change?

    On gen 3 pcm, you reach the hard limit of the pcm before you can max out the sensor. Sent from my HTC6535LVW using Tapatalk

    What's your favorite SS Model Year?

    The 03-05.5 had a unique grill to the sss where the 05.5+ had the same grill as any other silverado. And the dic had more features like instantaneous fuel economy. Plus nicer door panels. The seats also had the two way lumbar support Sent from my HTC6535LVW using Tapatalk

    3 bar map sensor

    gi.ss you have a lot of miss information on your post. the 411 pcm is actually smaller (memory wise) than the 03-07c pcm. they are all available to run up to a 3bar o.s. from factory they cannot, they need a custom OS from either hpt or efilive. as for 3 bar map sensors, the DMAX sensor is a plug and play just like the cobalt 2bar sensor. The dmax sensor is actually a 3.3bar. the ls9/a is also a good one, but twice as expensive due to the corvette tax, and requires a change in wiring. Also, an 06 OS will not work on a 03-05 pcm... unless you are willing to swap the TAC module and throttle pedal.

    experienced tuners help***

    No, the 05 truck has a different TAC and pedal assembly. The 05 os will not work on your 06 truck unless you use the 05 TAC/peddal assembly.
