Default My new LBZ ďbuildĒ thread and life decisions

Well guys. Sheís finally home. The first 06 LLY I went to pick up was a total piece. It. Was. Bad. So I found another 06 but a true LBZ this time on car gurus that I had seen before and called the lot. The guy was great. Took me about 30 pics and 3 videos he text me on the way there. I was already 3 hours from home and he was another hour and a half. Got there. Drive the truck and man sheís a beauty. Not 100% perfect but all around a great truck.

Donít have any pics yet but itís an 06 Chevy ECSB 4x4 truck. It says LT but has cloth interior with the jump seat. Not many bells and whistles. Itís white. Stock PYOís with god awful 285 Duratracs. Jut the inside is very clean. Few little dents and dings. Tiny bit of surface rust on the driver rocker. But itís bone stock. Never been tuned or anything. Egr and cat is still in place. Trans shifts good. Only issues I found was the fan motor speed 5 doesnít work. And the dealer said the gas gauge is screwy. But overall a nice stock clean slate. Pics to come tomorrow! Gonna be a slow process. But should be a better truck than my old LB7 was. Already love the stock power of this one.

That "stock power" thing wears off quick. I thought my LML had enough power stock...

Congrats on the new truck.

Previous truck was a built trans lb7 and its no where near the power it had but for stock itís much more impressive than that lb7 ever was stock. Thanks!

Congrats! They changed the trim levels in 06. LT was base, then LT2, and loaded was LTZ. Really if you going to put a bit of money into the truck and really make it nice your better off with a base truck. No cheap GM leather and Bose.

Ohh that makes more sense then. I love the base truck. The jump seat is what sold it for me. That and the charcoal interior. Glad thereís no Bose and less electronics to go bad.

Sounds like you'll need a fan module and new stepper motors to start, but those are common problems in all 03-07 trucks.

The odd thing is the dealer drive the truck as his shop truck for about 2k miles. And never had any issues but he called his mechanic just before I bought the truck to double check any issues and he told him when the gauge says half you’re out but, he had no idea. The truck was on 1/4 when I got it. And I didn’t have any issues.

Glad to hear you got a nice lbz ! And you can start fresh and make it your own the stock power is pretty impressive but yes it's true you get used to it after a while, then next thing you know you're looking for EFI

Step one is tires. Step 2 is egr delete and exhaust. Trango jr. Then a tunemark is definitely gonna get my business on this one. built trans from Evan or mike in the future too. Been looking at marks 3794 turbo. But am confused at some stuff. PPE offers a s300/400 kit with just a pedestal and the lines and stuff. No piping. And itís a fraction of the big name kits because Iím guessing thereís no piping. All that piping necessary? Stupid question I know. But just wanna make sure.

Yes all that piping is required unless you want to build your own.

I would recommend going with HSP for the single turbo install kit.

Your on the right track getting tuning and any VGT upgrades from Danville.

Nicceeeee
I got a homemade egr delete kit for $250 I'll sell.
I would replace the blower motor and resistor for the hvac, mine was pulling too many amps at level 5 and would burn up the resistor and wiring harness.

And they didn't change the trim levels in 06, my window sticker says lt3, ltz didn't come around till 07. My old neighbor has an ecsb 06 lt with cloth captain seats, center console with no bose. Weird combo forsure
