Re: 2014 Altitude parts

Removed and painted chrome grille rings gloss black + clearcoat. Sanded and used self-etching primer. Made some mistakes...not perfect but turned out pretty good. Will see how long it lasts.

Re: 2014 Altitude parts

The ONE body shop I asked said the same thing...wouldn't do it.

So I just painted them gloss black myself this morning. First I removed them, then sanded them with 400 grit and primed with...

Re: 2014 Altitude parts

I don't know why, but the chrome grille rings are only $105 while the "paintable" grill rings are nearly $300. I think I'll try painting my stock chrome ones anyway.

Re: Exhaust upgrade question

Mine was 2.25(muffler size) in and out. The 5.7 is 2 in, 2 out but maybe you could convert to 2/2or get a 1 in, 2 out muffler. You could try running straight pipes in leu of the suitcase muffler with...

Re: Would you delete: muffler or resonator?

Many months ago, I replaced the suitcase muffler with 2 Flowmaster DBX mufflers and an X-pipe. The shop did a very poor job(ugly, hanging low)but the sound was very good: No drone. Last week, I had a...

Re: 2014 cai

I am happy with the Volant. No power loss I can detect in midrange. If anything, there is an increase in power across entire RPM range.

As of now, I replaced the stock suitcase muffler with two Flowmaster DBX mufflers(2.25" in/out) and x pipe. I kept the factory resonators. Sounds very good. No drone cruising, fairly quiet at idle...

Re: Hemifever can now tune 2011 5.7 GC's

I too would love to see that but I emailed Sean about that a few weeks ago, he indicated that Diablosport has to come up with support first. I'm thinking it will be a long time.

Re: Just received my new exhaust components.

Hey, just google "magnaflow 11386 internal view" and check out a couple of the forums that come up. The 11386 basically IS an x-pipe. Someone even refers to it as a "resonated x pipe".

Re: Just received my new exhaust components.

I could be wrong but I think that if the exhaust "mixes" in the duel in-out muffler, you won't need the x pipe.

Sounds like a good plan. Hope it sounds good for you.

Re: V-6 or V-8, regrets?

No placebo effect. I was going strictly by feel. The Suburban(of course much heavier) made 330 ft lb of torque.
