Nice! I just ordered some ARP head studs with HG kit. Idk much about the CP3s, just started reading about em, i'm sure some of the other fellas on here will chime in on that!

What tunes are you running from Rob?

let me know how it goes when you do your HG and studs.. it doesn't look fun haha.

the only thing I really know about the double CP3s are that it splits the work load in half and if the main CP3 does fail the secondary one will then continue to work but will have all the work load. hopefully someone can expand on it more.

im running his custom ones so I have optimum stock, heavy tow, light tow, economy, and race tune.

I've been running it on tune 4 which is 90 or 100hp plus. So around 450-60ish? The kicker is I've only put 3k on it since buying :/ guess that's what I get for buying a tuned truck. It's ok tho, she'll be good for more hp now haha

here is my 0 to 100 video I eased into it
dang. That's just rolling on it on the econo tune? she must boogie when you turn her up. Looks like you'd be doing more spinning if you were hammering on her haha.

and hot dam does she whistle on that high idle! I want one right now! haha.

Would deff like to see her in action on some hot tunes :poke[1]: :drink

Yeah I cant really get on it anymore because the roads are always coverd in snow and ice so it spins even worse. I only put it on my hot tune once so far and it spun tires in every gear going down the road.

haha I had it on high idle outside of the grocery store the other day and I got a lot of looks from people :rofl
