Josh's 08 LMM

Hey guys, my name is josh and im 20 years old. I run my own tile business and just bought my first diesel 4 months ago! I had a 05 gmc half ton before but didn't want to keep sticking money into a gasser.

I found the truck and fell in love. I paid 30k for it with 106k miles and it had all of this done to it.
-Its a 08 sierra slt 2500hd greystone in color
-Has sunroof, nav, and rear dvd player
-It had 20x9 dick cepeks on it with 285/55 hankook dynapros
-Tonneau cover and bed liner
-4" MBRP straight pipe down pipe back
-Cranked stock keys and fender mod

Since i've got the truck ive done the following
-Demolded
-Rough Country Tie rod sleeves
-Bilstein 5100's in the rear
-Hellwig air bags in rear
-Efi Live by Kory willis dsp5
-Transgo Jr Shift kit
-Kicker 500w amp
-Sundown audio sd-12

On tuesday im getting this installed,
-Fass Titanium 150
-EGR block plate
-Nicktane fuel rail race plug

My future mods are
-Suncoast tranny (hopefully mike l)
-Different turbo (thinking a dannville stg2 68)
-Hot side intake tube
-3" mbrp down pipe
-PCV reroute
-Nitto trail graps 285/55/20
-Fuel mavericks 20x10 -12
-Tow mirrors

Im sure im forgetting some stuff but this thread is just to help me document and get some info from ya'll. Thanks for lookin!

Got my FASS titanium 150gph installed today along with a egr blocker plate! Brought it to a guy thats about 30 mins away and is probably the best diesel mechanic around. Charges me $750 for the pump installed and $80 for the plate installed. Im sure i could have done them myself but didn't want to mess with it. Especially the egr plate lol. He had the plate done in about 30 mins and couldn't believe it!

The truck runs sooo much better! I'm in love all over again lol, it actually pulls hard through all the gears and shifts so much smoother since it's holding rail pressure. I asked the guy if he wanted to put the race valve in and he recommended that i don't do it unless i absolutely need it as there is no where for the excess fuel pressure to go.

I have a resonator plug coming in the mail then will probably just do a pcv re route, and edge cts with pyro. After those few mods i'll be done performance wise for a while. Will probably do a few apperance mods then it's saving for a transmission!




Oh yeah and when talking with the mechanic he said my truck had the newer hard fuel lines. We were also talking about injection pumps and dual fuelers and he was shocked that my truck had dual alternators! He said it was the first truck hes had that came in with dual alternators. He then said that my turbo had been taken off before but said it was a stock turbo so maybe it's a new oem turbo that was under warranty?

Yeah there dick cepek gun metal 7's. They came on the truck, im not too sure how i like them. I want to go with something different but i really need tires soon. I might just get some mt's and throw them on these rims. Ideally i would like to get some mavericks or something though.
