For all the fear mongering change your oil every other month clowns here is yet more proof my engine is not sludging up. Both of the oil ports on the cooler are spotless at 475,000 miles with extended UOA up to 40,000 miles.
Have about 1,100 miles since install and still no leaks. I might have picked up 5 PSI in hot oil pressure. Right now I have 50 PSI hot highway cruising. I did not double check beforehand but I remember it being around 45 PSI in the same conditions.
Not to bad except for being a little messy. You need to go slow so you do not dump coolant/oil on your head. When using the 17-19 L5P cooler you will need 2 longer bolts but all the gaskets are the same.
So rumor has it the van will get the 6.6 gas for 2021 to replace the 6.0. Looks like the transmission will still be the 6 speed. I am wondering if this combo will push 20 MPG on the highway ? The highest I have seen so far in 4x4 trucks with the 3.73 gear is 16-18 MPG highway.
Time for tires for my tow vehicle. We tow with a 2012 Chevy Express 3500 Duramax.
I've used Michelin LTX A/S on everything I owned in the past. I'm pretty loyal to Michelins, never had a tire failure and they gave me a ton of miles.
I have to admit we've been on a ton of gravel roads...
For the first time in 5 years I just noticed today my Edge Insight CTS2 has 2 oil pressure pids. I have always just looked at the one at the top of list labeled "engine oil pressure". The 2nd one was labeled I think just "oil pressure". While driving down the highway I switched back forth...
I need to find the right tool to force exhaust regens. Here is the kicker, this is for four short buses with the LGH, not your regular silverado LML. I tried an edge CTS2 I had, but it didn't work. What others might there be?
