  1. Hello all, I am fixing to bite the bullet on collecting parts for a swap. The truck it is going in is a RCSB v6 2007 classic (03-06 body style). I am very picky about my truck and want it to be a clean swap so when it is done it looks OEM. This is pretty much the only forum I trust about doing things the right way so I figured I'd ask. For those of you who have done this swap before or have any pointers I would love to hear about it, perhaps it will help me and others down the road. I am curious as to which accessories will work/not work from my v6 along with other issues to watch out for. A parts list would be great! Thanks guys!

    Transmission Output Shaft Swap

    Before I start this I should point out that I am in fact not a Transmission specialist. I am a general tech who just happens to dabble in everything and try new things. That being said, if any actual Transmission Techs out there want to chime in with pointers, correct me, add stuff, whatever...please do so. I'm not a genius and i'm also writing this up months after i actually did it, so i may have missed something or typed it wrong. I'm not going to cry if you criticize me, I care more that the correct info is out there for the people who need it. The following how-to is a step by step process of how to change out your transmission Output Shaft. This is actually part of a massive retrofit I'm doing over HERE to swap AWD into my RWD SSS. In case you didn't know, the only major difference between an AWD and RWD transmission in your SSS is the output shaft. The RWD has a longer Output Shaft because it has a tail housing going directly to the driveshaft. The AWD has a short "stub" shaft that goes into the NV-149 Transfer Case adapter, then T-case, which connects to the driveshaft. Anyone who has tried to put high HP into their truck knows that these transmissions are actually utter crap and can't handle power. Quick bit of history. The silverado used to use the 4L60E, but due to increases in power, especially with the SS version, they revised it into the 4L65E. A few revised parts here and there, and boom a transmission that can still barely handle the power being put into it. Most everyone has had their transmission go out or had a friend's who's did. 70,000 miles here...intake, exhaust, daily driver. Don't get discouraged though, a good reputable builder can build you a 4L65E that can last. Anyway back on point, one of the many weak parts in this transmission is the AWD output shaft. So the long RWD shaft while put under stress actually flexes a bit to help alleviate said stress. The shorter AWD shaft though does not, so when said stress is exerted, say hundreds of pounds of torque suddenly applied, the shaft will just straight break. Luckily you can find shot-peened, cryo-treeted, electrical induction treated, billet, etc shafts all over the internet. Now if you decided to tackle an output shaft replacement/swap you'll find that the ouput shaft is actually close to the back of the transmission and 3/4 of the guts have to be removed to get to it. A real pain, but not all that hard. Much easier than a full transmission rebuild. If you have a manual and patience this can be done in a few hours. For my purposes though i have to replace the RWD long shaft with the short AWD shaft for my build.

    led gauge cluster conversion

    Hey guys. I am looking do a red led conversion on my gauge cluster. has anyone just bought a kit and if so where did you find it? anything I should know or pay extra attention to? Any info would be helpful. Thanks in advance guys.
  4. I think its time to tackle the LED swap and I was just wondering where you guys would recommend ordering LEDs for the cluster and the AC controls? I'm not sure if it would matter or not but I'd hate to order some cheap ones and they burn out lmao. Thanks!
  5. Okay guys I have a lq9 6.0,and I want to swap out the intake manifold and slap on a ls3 intake manifold. I heard around the block that its just bolt on and a simple plug n play. I know I'll need ls3intake manifold of course with a ls3 throttle body. And the fuel rails. If I'm missing something here please do tell me and if its a simple plug and play. Thanx
  6. So I am planning on swapping to a 4L80e and a guy is selling a built one, but it has a stand alone ECM and wiring. So I am wondering if this is a good way to go or not. Also if I did go this route would the transmission Temp Gauge work or would I have to do something to get it to work. Any info would be great. Thanks!
  7. I have been considering a 4.3 V6 to 6.0 Swap for my 2007 single cab classic but was wondering if any of you who have done this knew around how much labor and costs this could add up to? Also how much money would I be able to make back up by selling the parts taken off along with the V6 motor when replaced with ones for the new motor (Transmission, PMC, Motor Mounts, Fuel Lines, etc)? My truck as of now has around 43k miles on it so that might give you guys an estimate on how much I would be able to sell the parts I took off for. Thanks!
