I am new to this forum, I have been reading it for a while and wishing for an 06 lbz. I currently drive a ford but I really want to get back in a chevy. Anyway, I was at a chevy dealership and they said they could chip the truck and bump the hp up to 600 and to as much as 800 if I wanted them to. They said it would not void the warranty and that the engine was capable of it. What do you guys think? I would think that they would have to do a lot more than a chip, I think he was thinking intake and exhaust too. I didnt really get to ask any questions, a salesman I have previously bought from caught me when I was driving through and dreaming of a new truck. I appreciate any info and love this forum, lots of great info on it.

Hah... Stupid dealers.. I'd love to see their faces when you take them for a ride in a real 600RWHP truck.. They'd crap themselves.. and immediately dishonor the warranty :)


I can't stand that.. Well stock is 350, so we'll add 120 with an edge and 120 with a predator, plus about 50 hp for exhaust, intake, gauges and stickers...

Yep.. That's 640hp allright :lol:

tell them they have a bunch of guys coming to buy new trucks if they are going to do that. He won't be able to keep them in stock!!! They would be the highest selling dealer in the states!!

800Hp

I would call them. I was told that it is the same exhaust as the LLY with the turbo back. removes the cat. or you can call 505-266-8373 and ask for Eloy. Just tell him that Steve Force sent you and he will know. They call me that since I was on a Top Fuel team building engines. :ro)

i had to install a muffler with a baffle. it is the same muffler that I had on my Peterbilt when I put straight stacks on it. I guess that you can go without but will get EGR codes. I am getting them as well but am looking into fingers products to kill the light and block off the EGR

Yea i get codes now too with my straight pipe but only when i am towing. I am probably going to get the Banks Tuner or Edge when it comes out and look into deleting those codes or blocking them like you are...so i think i will go with 5 inch straight pipe and no cat or muffler.....you get a real deep thoaty sound when you getting on it with that exhaust huh?? and i bet that turbo whistles like a mother...:eek:

my turbo sounds pretty good now. I had the same exhaust on my 2002 LB7 motor and it was loud. this one is pretty quiet. I am amazed on how quiet it is. It sounds like a built big block rather than a diesel. Once I can trick the PCM for the codes, I am going to cut the baffle out of my muffler. I would go with EDGE. I know a guy that worked for banks and they admit there is a problem with EGT temps. They don't tell the public that but it happens.
