    Questions about cam and other upgrades to my 5.3?

    Thats what I was told also, that really I didnt need the gears, that a retune would be ideal instead because of money mostly. And then later on since I would go with blackbear anyways I could get a new tune from them when I had the money for a gear swap. Right now I dont have the money to do...

    Questions about cam and other upgrades to my 5.3?

    But thats also not with 35s and a 7.5 lift. I mean I know for sure that I will need new gears. Its ridiculous to even try to run 3.08s on there with that setup. At first I had originally wanted to go with 3.73s because I had researched the rpm gears and tire size chart and that had matchd up...

    Questions about cam and other upgrades to my 5.3?

    So what then 4.11s? I know that is what I want to go to at the highest for sure because I know with 3.73s on the highway the truck will be searching to find a gear at 70 mph. Ive experienced it in my dads truck. He has 4.56 and 4.11s before that and the 4.11s were fine but he went to 4.56 to try...

    Questions about cam and other upgrades to my 5.3?

    Yeah I havent ever driven a GM with a custom tune on it. And from the factory I have 3.08 rear gears, like WTF is that? I am gonna go with 4.56 when I lift it and put 35s and rims this summer along with either a tune or speedo recalibrator from hypertech. Been thinking about just the recal and...

    Questions about cam and other upgrades to my 5.3?

    And also I have thought about it as well. I want to try to find a 6.0 around town in a salvage yard or something to try and rebuild it while its on the stand so that way I am still using the truck. Ideally I want to find a wrecked 2500 6.0 so I can have the 4L80e transmission to be able to...

    Questions about cam and other upgrades to my 5.3?

    I just want more all around power. More torque at the bottom end to get off the line and more ponies to keep going. I also want more torque to be able to haul trailers that "i cant haul because theyre too heavy" says me dad.

    Questions about cam and other upgrades to my 5.3?

    I was told by another guy that maybe I should look into getting a set of heads off of an LS1 from a vette. He said he has tons of guys come in and thats one of the first things they do to their vettes and he has bolted them onto his 5.3 in the past. Would that work instead of getting all new...

    Woman's Vine Captures Exact Moment Truck Flies Over Guardrail

    I can promise you guys that did NOT end well either, if you notice when he first jumps there is a nearly 6 inch to foot thick concrete wall, which means on the other side he is going into that head on at a very fast rate, not to mention with that big mower flying, who knows what happened. Hope...

    Long tube headers MPG with bigger tires

    Thats a very good point man. But dont go too low or that will defeat the purpose of getting better gas mileage because it would go down. Stock on my avalanche is 3.08 gears. Like what the F*&K is that?!?!?!? :fume: I think it should come standard with 3.42 and have an upgrade of 3.73 for the tow...

    Long tube headers MPG with bigger tires

    Going up to 285 isnt really that big of a jump. I know that stock I had 265/70R17, currently I have 285/70R17 and it didnt do that much. The tire is only about 1.5 inches taller and doesnt throw the speedo more than 1-2 mph.
