    Definitely a possibility.

    Needing help getting 454 with 4l80e to move again.

    Unplug everything from the trans, you should have reverse and 2nd, if you don't, something is BAD wrong.

    The wastegate should be pretty stiff. I cannot move mine by hand at all.

    No boost

    The most common problem is the power steering line rubs through the intercooler tube by the pump. If it's a northern truck the actual wastegate shaft can get seized into the housing.

    Updated tsb proportioning valve

    If it was done by a dealership they can look it up.

    Any news on the 3.0L I6 Duramax?

    Fiat kept it pretty quiet trying to avoid all the bad publicity like VW went through when they got caught. The sad part was they swore they didn't use it when asked, but they got caught.

    Any news on the 3.0L I6 Duramax?

    From what I've read, this isn't GM's fault. If you want to blame somebody, blame VW and FIAT. This is the EPA holding it up certifying the engine. The same thing happened to the Colorado because the EPA just KNEW GM used the cheat like VW did. It was found even though Bosch put the cheat in ALL...

    Updated tsb proportioning valve

    It was a technical service bulletin because as many know, the rear brakes on the burbs SUCKED! There's a post here somewhere where they tested the stock valve and found GM capped rear pressure at 600, but started tapering it off alot sooner. The new valve caps rear pressure at 800, but keeps...

    Updated tsb proportioning valve

    Not sure, they look the same from the outside.

    New 2.8L Colorado Duramax

    I found my sweet spot to be in the 60-65 range, and it dropped off on either side of it. Running 55 I could eek out 21, but 63 got me 23 with a good bit of stop & go mixed in.

    Updated tsb proportioning valve

    The valve is in the end of the abs unit where the lines from the master screw in. None of the 2500's got the revised valve. The 1500 6 lugs were supposed to have gotten it, but several had swapped this valve in and seen braking improvements.

    Steering/brake pump EVO Conversion

    The bulb could be burned out as well. And my 99 doesn't show a u1000 with vats disabled, but it's a gasser.

    SAE #3 vs GM Bellhousing

    Keep in mind the ALLISON needs a high flow cooler. It uses -10an cooler lines which are 5/8" id. Most radiator coolers cannot flow enough fluid for one as they move a couple gallons a minute of oil through them.

    No bueno

    It was running away completely on oil from the turbo. The turbo came apart and shredded the tubing after the turbo. The air shut off was before the turbo which is how most run them, do it was able to get air from the shredded intake tubes, and all the HOT oil was enough fuel to make it run away...

    Updated tsb proportioning valve

    Cost me $203 delivered from Arnold Oil Co. out of Texas. This was the superceded part number for the last combination valve available. It was listed as the oem part for half ton gmt-400' for 99-00. Starting in 2001 GM stopped using this unit and switched everything over to the style that used a...

    SAE #3 vs GM Bellhousing

    The Allison needs a SERIOUS cooler. Several have found that dual 10x14 earls coolers on electric fans were bearly big enough to manage temps on them. They really need a liquid to liquid cooler to knock the bulk of the temp down in them.

    The racing body(nhrda seems to be the most common) wrote the rule book.

    2008 GMC Envoy Denali

    You can always decap them. That should get you around 80-100 lb/hr out of them. I'm on the hunt for a set of L59 injectors to put in mine. My marine intake uses LS1/6 style injectors, but with ev6 plugs. So the L59's are drop in's, but flow 33 or 35 lb/hr which will handle anything I will do...

    Front brake upgrade

    Everybody else that has done it has swapped the whole spindle, hub, calipers, all of it to get the much larger pads and calipers.

    Steering/brake pump EVO Conversion

    Unplugging the solenoid should default to max steering all the time which will be pretty soft st highway speeds. The kit reverts back to the old style valve which uses a small orifice which is in between the variable system's min and max outputs. I had s 95 pump sitting on the shelf that I took...
