Hey there, my name's Chris. Just got an 05 LLY CCSB. Spending a lot on maintenance items right now, with a couple goodies thrown in. I'll be using my truck to tow an off road crawler and DD duty on weekends. Stepped up from an overtaxed Nissan Titan.

I'm having a little buyer's remorse with the amount of maintenance I'm doing on a new to me truck, but thats the way it goes sometimes I guess. Hopefully I get it all tightened up and tuned up. It feels really sluggish off the line as it is, but pulls hard once I hit second. Anyway, thanks for providing me with another way to find out how to spend my money!

You shouldn't have buyers remorse from doing maintenance. If you think you aren't going to like it, sell it. These trucks require some major maintenance over a gasser and parts are more expensive. It will feel sluggish until 2nd when its stock. Mine was like that when I first got it. Welcome and enjoy!

I don't mind maintenance, I was just hoping I wouldn't need to do this much right off the bat. That and a few other things just make me wish I had gotten a little cleaner duramax. No big deal, it's only money! Haha.

I'm getting a tuner soon so hopefully that will wake it up to meet my expectations haha

I think that's the year the intake and turbo inlet or something like that needs to be uncorked or replaced with LBZ stuff . I'm sure some one will chime in and give you the details on what I'm talking about .. And don't worry your gonna love that truck once you get it dialed in you'll wonder why you waited so long to get one

I'll be getting an LBZ mouthpiece soon. Just spent a ton on maintenance stuff (full steering, brakes, tranny flush, fuel filter, etc) so i'll be doing it soon. It has a K&N intake on it that I hear I should be getting rid of, and not just because of the oiled filter, something about a smaller diameter tube speeding air flow and fooling the mass air sensor?

Well, got a Quadzilla Stealth 2 for cheap to try out until I get some proper tuning, and MAN! 135hp DEFINITELY woke it up off the line, and then once the turbo spools its insane. Welcome to diesel tuning! haha.

Got the MAF code again last night, need to find a stock intake now to replace my K&N...

I would be carful with that tune if you want that tranny to last.

Without gauges or a built tranny it wont be my everyday tune, just had to give it a shot. Ill probably just stick with 50-90 for now.
