Tuner and shift kit questions

Just bought a hypertech max energy tuner for my 5.3 vortec. And the guy that had the truck before me put some kind of corvette part in the tranny to make it shift firmer. And the tuner says not to adjust shift firmness if you have an aftermarket shift kit. I was wondering if I shouldn't adjust the firmness or does it not matter. And does anyone know what the corvette part is he put ...

thinking of getting my first new chevy

Alright Guys and Gals, I'm new here and I need some input...

I'm 19 and in the Navy. I just got a pre-approved loan through Navy Federal CU and I am moving to Whidbey Island, WA next week. I plan on buying a truck when I get there and I've narrowed it down to a 00-06 Tundra 4x4 Access cab with a 4.7 or a 99-06 Chevy 4x4, preferably ECSB with a 5.3. This is ...

Seeking advice on auxiliary trans cooler

Bought a 2007 Silverado Ext Cab, V6, which already had a factory installed hitch. This is good because about 4 times each summer I will be pulling a 1500lb popup, about 400lbs of gear, and about 500lbs of people. That's about 2500lbs for a truck that has a tow rating of 4700lbs, so I am just over 1/2 the trucks tow capacity. The camp grounds are pretty close (within 40 miles) and mostly flat lands, ...

2WD to 4WD

I have a 2003 Silverado 4.8 2WD RCSB that is probably the most dependable trouble free vehicle I have ever owned. It was a fleetside when I bought it, now a stepside. I have installed leather interior from a Intimidator with a console. I absolutely love this truck and will never sell it.The only thing I would wish is that it was 4WD. My question is can the 2WD frame be altered to 4WD or ...
