Matt, random question here, you ever have to lay the skinny pedal to the floor in the LML with the built motor? While towing heavy...

I like super clean in the purple bottle, probably takes all the wax off too, but it gets bugs and grease like nobody's business

Tarminator works wonders, best I've used... If seen it in a couple random truck stores and truck stop, i think some auto parts stores might even have started carrying it... Usually takes everything off with a good soak... If you have stubborn spots, soak a cotton round in it, and lay It right on top of the tar for awhile, or tape it on with masking tape if it's on the side... Check online for stores near you that might carry it...

Certainly have! ;) Had to try out the CP3 tunes, make sure they were dialed in, lol..... (excuse)

What he said, you'll have to rewax anything you use Tarminator on...

I think GM spec is that the engine takes 1200 sustained... I wouldn't worry if it hops up a little, as long as you don't hold it there...

You back down at 1200? I was 1180-1270 for about 500 miles yesterday. Lol

Lol, if I hammer it to pass somebody, or to make a run for it up some hill, mine usually top around 1400... I've never kept it there long, definitely would be scared for stock pistons, lol.... I can hold 65-70 in 5th gear on most hills, and they stay between 1200-1250... A WOT run from a standstill loaded heavy will take em to 1400 right after every shift, and jump around between 1200-1400 till I back off...

I have to really try to break 1300 usually. But Iv had quite a few trips holding 1250 for ~1000 miles. Oil starts to get warm though.

I should set mine on modified stock and see what kind of EGTs I see... Oval bowl pistons play in to higher egts, as the fuel isn't burning quite as efficiently, I feel...

Wow, I forgot how much love this blue beast! It's been so cloudy, rainy, salty, and everything else the last while I forgot how good it looks after a good hand wash. Yeah, I'm ready to summer now...

Once the time comes for wheels, it's definitely gonna be getting a cut and polish to take care of swirls and minor scratches, and bring back the wet gloss again... Definitely getting it ceramic coated after that...

Desperately need some 305s again, hate how the 265s look. Can't wear 'em out fast enough...

You doing the cut and polish or not?

What about the ceramic coating? I'm debating on doing mine and the wife's this spring.

No, I'd get it done professionally... I want it perfect, lol... I could, but it would take me forever, and I got other stuff I'd rather be doing. Ceramic coating will last for a couple of years if it's taken care of... Pricey, but worth it for premium paint protection...
