I was curious cause i'm new to my 06 lbz. Where should i start when wanting to build my truck, is there any good way to start or is it just here and there till your done. Cause i've heard of efi live and actually saw it drop a boys trans this weekend and don't want that happening to mine. Any tips and advice would be nice like products. Thanks

From what I've gathered, there's an order most use to do basic mods. Pump rub, egr delete or block, cat fuel filter adapter, exhaust and downpipe, transgo jr, efi live. That's enough to occupy my spare time and keep my wallet empty for awhile so I haven't looked much further.

What do you want out of your truck??? that is the MAIN question

with the amount of miles on your truck, BEFORE going anywhere else, if you want plan on wanting more power, do the sensible thing and pull the trans and transfer case, have the pump rub kit installed and have the trans gone thru and depending on if you want your ultimate aims are, I would drop an upgraded kit in the trans just while it's out.

Once your trans is fresh, you can do other mods. I would not bother with the cat filter adaptor and go with a lift pump that has filters already on. You need to have positive pressure on the CP3.

you can run a nice turbo back exhaust and kill the kitty.

You can decided to block or delete the egr and also re-route the PCV.

after all that, you can decide to either use a canned tuner or EFI-live. the choice is upto you.

That looks like a good list, although some may put in a FASS or Airdog in place of the CAT Filter. As well as a set of Boost and Pyro gauges is a must.

As for EFILive it all depends on what you want, you can't expect a stock trans to last on a 225hp tune for very long, or at all. But a good tuner knows the limits of what your truck can handle, so can have tunes that are realitively safe for your truck. If you talk with Idaho Rob, Kory Willis, or Nick at Duramaxtuner they should be able to set you up with what you want as they are highly recomended. I personally got mine from Idaho Rob.

It all depends on how far you want to go, but there is alot of information on this forum all you have to do is read.

Just remember you got to pay to play.

I was already thinking of rebuilding it, but i have no idea on what could be a good match. i want the power and speed but building my trans and trans case seem to be a must so any tips on the kit to rebuild with? Or site to find one thats good?

You best bet is to give mike L a call at inglewood transmission.

He is a vendor on here and an allison guru if not god

Inglewood Transmission

He will talk you thru what your options are.

Other option would be to contact Merchant automotive as they are a vendor here too
