Def! An awesome hardcore badass truck. Tuning these trucks is not an absolute necessity. They are BA as they come.

Tuning just takes it to another level.

Honestly. And most people don’t believe me. But I have never had to smog my truck yet and it’s a 2012. Maybe this year. But it’s all about who you know

I live in a non amish state, but decided to keep them for now. Added mbrp hotside pipe and down pipe as well as 4"cool dual which delete the muffler. No in cab change in sound with windows up, slight rumble from exhaust and a noticeable change in turbo whistle with windows down. I run an Edge Evo CTS2, love the gauges and could return to stock program if emish nazis invade.Still noticable by dealer if they bother to check. Level 4 full throttle makes me an A hole driver as it burns all 4 rear tires going into 2nd gear. 1st gear stock turbo won't let me spool up fast enough to lite up 1st gear without a boost launch. 4wheel high 8-10 psi launch is stupid, but hard on the tranny.Thinking about a Batmo or wicked wheel to fix that. I would like to see them find that... Looking to go with a lift pump next as I drained the fuel rail at wot and 110mph and my fuel filter milage went straight to 0% with only 3000 miles on new Parker/Ranco filter. For the most part I drive like a civilized person but can't resist the urge to flaunt it sometimes. Also no black smoke whatsoever, not to into that as it seem like a waste at the current cost of diesel. All in all I am happy with my 7000lb hot rod when I am not playing family guy pulling my 38ft home away from home.

2009 Silverado 3500 HD CC LWB DRW LTZ 6.6 LMM Edge Evo CTS2, MBRP 3"hot side pipe, 3" down pipe and 4" dpf back cool duals.4 wheel disc slotted and drilled rotors carbon ceramic pads., Dmax store extreme tie rods and extreme diesel sway bar end links.2011 Navi GPS upgrade w/factory USB port in dash.All led upgrade lighting, highs,lows, fogs, interior and bed lighting.2009 Denali wood grain cupholder upgrade.

Sorry, I know I posted on the wrong thread, but thought it might be relevant since I am smog legal.... for the most part.

Also, you may want to check your wheel wells periodically. See if there's any Priuses lodged in there.

ok so I stopped at my normal muffler shop today and they told me they won't put a new tip on my exhaust. I picked up a 7"x18" MBPR black tip and figured since I can't make it sound better at least it doesn't have to look stock. So he said that changing the tip could put out to much heat and melt the rear bumper plastic. does this sound right??

Just buy 5 inch inlet tip and bolt it on top of the factory tip. The gaps between the tip and exhaust are there to help cool it during regen.
