I will. Can't wait. I probably could have put it on myself on my back in the driveway, but the local Car Quest has a lift and the cost to use it is to good to pass up.
It's getting to the point where I'm not going to be able to do a whole lot of maintenance on my vehicle. It just causes way to much pain. :nonod:

Half way between here and there.
I figures I would post this. It was a little louder on start up right at first. Not sure if the iPhone cuts out loud noise like that on purpose or not.



It isn't loud at all for the most part but gives the truck a nice exhaust note.



The thing under my truck is my scissor lift. Funny thing is that it will live my 2002 Silverado with not problem, but now that the new vehicles are heavier, it will not live my new Silverado or my wife's Suburban.

According to the dyno run after the CAI install it lost HP and torque. Not much but some. I'm thinking it was due to disconnecting the battery for that 45 minutes it took to install the CAI. I want to put it back on the dyno, but it will not be a good reading now since I put the exhaust on and the weather conditions will be different.

I'm hoping they will be able to tune these soon. Then I'll have it dyno tuned to get the most of both the CAI and exhaust.

What gets me is the Corsa muffler is "HUGE". So I didn't save anything weight wise. :)

HP tuners can tune it now. But, you have to physically send them your ECU. They have to open it. They're the only tuning option at this point. Justin doesn't think the 2020s will even be tunable.

That doesn't sound like the best way to go. How can they adjust real time data like on a dyno or street tune like Justin does? Sounds like a can tune for the most part.

Did Justin say the 2019 will be able to by him any time soon?

He’s not expecting it to be. GM is not playing nice with the aftermarket anymore.

My understanding is, after they open the computer then you can use HP tuners to adjust tune like on our older trucks.

That’s how my SRT is anyway.
