thanks bud for the info, i had looked into the esky pedal from an 06 prior to buildin the spacer, but there is nothing on car-part.com.and local ads.. very hard to come by a wrecked 06 caddy.. i could easily find a nnbs 07 up pedal assemblies, but they do have a different bolt pattern, and would need the spacer anyways... so for now the spacer will do till something pops up.

any 2006 SUV with power adjustable pedals will work. Doesnt have to be an escalade.

Tahoe, suburban, avalanche, escalade. Has to be 2006 model year though.

Just ran into a snag... the lbz cooling system is too large for the halfton frame rubs the frame even with the 2inch body.... solution... get an lb7/lly rad support with intercooler, rad,fan.

Actually you can use the NBS black plastic power pedal base, the cable will clip into it, we do it all the time.

Ben whats up with the De-power for traction control, PM me

Seems you know quite a few people who have done Dmax swaps, do you know of anyone who has done one on a GMT900?

Pic 1(driver side brake compensator pump has to be relocated as pipe interferes with original location) (only on stabilitrack vehicles)

Pic 2(new support in and passenger pipe is modded) change the 45 to 90 degree on the intercooler (cutting almost an 1 inch from the one end) and cut connectors off lb7 pipes and weld together to make a butt connection

you're going to be getting rid of the pre-charge pump anyways. Stabilitrak doesnt work with the duramax ECM.



EDIT: well, it doesnt work without one of my custom little translator modules, and my translator module only works with LB7/LLY's unfortunately.
