iamdave0887 Thankfully the engine tear down pics is not my engine, just a college auto shop engine. 04-30-2009
dualinchevy awe bummer man! I say swap in a d-max, have you seen the editor of DP mag's truck? its a standard cab 90's chevy, but he swapped in a d-max, and Allison, and it is sweet! Love the stacks by the way! 04-28-2009
iamdave0887 Got a good deal on those stacks. the old one the chrome was starting to crack and peel. I wish the engine in the teardown was a spare. it's still at my college in the auto shop, collecting dust. What a waste huh? 03-22-2009
JD4440 Awe man, can't believe you traded out the single for some dual stacks. Great pics of the teardown 03-21-2009

WhiteK2500 Ok, I gotta ask... What's "Kyrie" have to do with the rig? Name? personal value? 02-13-2009
F.B.I with the heat PCM GL4 did you notice more power feel on the trottle ?
what is the purpose of harmonic balancer ?
heavyhauldad do you have any pictures of the bed with the exhaust? I have seen a couple of dude's beds and this is the only thing keeping me from installing my stack(single). 11-23-2008
chris4521 Nice truck! Very similar to mine. what made you buy the harmonic balancer when you first serviced it? 11-15-2008
98BuickRegalgs Search "6.5 Turbo Diesel" on youtube and sort by view count. Me and you have videos that are #5 and #7 in views. Neat huh =P 10-23-2008
iamdave0887 it had just the american flag. i added the dead jester on the passenger side the GMC logo i did a few days ago, the "real trucks don't have spark plugs" cuz its true, and the few others were also added by me. i've got some cleaning up to do on them however. 06-08-2008
dreamer7 Did it have that many decals on the back when you bought it? 06-08-2008
