There hasn't been this much good smack talk based on new information on DD in years! I love it!

Now that the L5P is unlocked, I'm starting to consider upgrading from my 2003. Not that I can afford...

I thought so too, but had to replace one and it was 100% American thread on my 2003 LB7. Seemed odd to me, but thread gauges don't lie.

It all depends on the tune. I run my setup pretty non-linear, and I'm probably about the same boost at that throttle position. Makes it really smooth to drive around other traffic.

I'd check the...

You said you have a LB7, the first generation of Duramax. It was rated 235 HP until 2004, where they upped it to 300 HP at the crank. We have dyno'd dozens of them stock, and they make 250 HP at the...

I have a Suncoast 6 speed kit in my Suburban, and I love it. The shift strategy is great on a stock motor with a ~200 HP tune. The more modified your motor/trubo setup is, the more you'll need custom...

You can have good luck getting an Allison built at a local shop. My truck's 2nd (current) transmission was done by a reputable local shop, and so far it's every bit as good as the 1st (MikeL build...

I wonder if you are seeing a kit without a torque converter? That could explain the low cost. You will need an upgraded torque converter, the stock one will slowly (if you are lucky) start to slip...

X2, make the trans hold the power, then do the 6 speed conversion. The 6-speed conversion doesn't require removing the transmission, just the valve body, and can be done fairly easily at any time.

X2, that sounds like the fuel pressure regulator didn't get plugged all the way back in. Unplug it and re-plug it, listen for the satisfying "click" as it goes in. If that is unplugged, the fuel...

I'm with Trimox, I think it is a USB port issue. Try a different port (might have to try all of them) and see if you can get one to work. Once the V2 boots, Windows should be able to recognize it.

I never got enough miles on the first set of VCO injectors to fully adjust the tune to my liking, so that adjustment was with the SACs. They could be the reason it likes a little less timing, never...

Yes, a fixed S371 on a motor with a big cam and lowered compression.


And you are right, it is all in the tune. Add some timing, more heat goes into the coolant and less to the exhaust. Remove...

I see 900-1000F cruising down the highway at 75+ MPH in my truck, measured at the passenger manifold. Depending on lift, tire size, weight, etc., 900 doesn't sound unreasonable at high speed.

Smile Purchased!

Bought a FICM and complete engine harness from WisconsinHick1. The harness was something I wanted too, so I went that way.
