I must be insane because I prefer the LB7. I own 2, and my brother owns 1. The LB7s do tend to be a bit cheaper to buy, but you're doing good to buy one much under $10k here in Idaho, and it will...

You'd still need a delete tune. Those just let you remove the modules without breaking the CAN bus loop and losing communication with downstream modules. If you put these on a stock truck, it'd throw...

Pretty sure that is the turn signal switch (also does cruise control, head lights, wipers), and the top plastic cover off the column.

Yeah, that part number could work. Shoot me the VIN and a price shipped to 83705. I'll look up the VIN. If it has the features I need, I'll pick it up from you.

I have a 300A modded AD244 on my GMC. I was thinking the L5P alternator might be cheaper than a modded AD244, hence my interest. A high quality AD244 in the 200+ amp range is $300+, and it looks like...

Hmm, I think you're right. Thinking about it more, on cold starts, the voltage comes up to 13 right away, then jumps up to 14 once the glow plugs are off. I bet that's the voltage drop across the...

On the LB7, you could just invert the sensor table (like when swapping a LB7 -> LBZ with the fuel level sensor). Not sure if the newer motors have a table or if it is a hard coded formula. Hopefully...

If an injector was stuck open, you'd have smoke out the exhaust from that cylinder, and it would probably make a knocking sound while cranking as that cylinder tried to run.
