its obviously not gettin a 12v if im asking for more power for the 6.0 and its not gettin a supercharger either. i have a TV7512 for it if i build the truck later. im just talking maybe 50hp.

also, what are good basic upgrades for the tranny? shift kit? dont really want to do a converter if i dont have to.

Basically the same kind of things you'd do for a diesel transmission, tuning, shift kit, clutches and torque converter. How much power you looking to make Garrett?

for 50hp i think the 4l80 will handle it, its not too bad of a tranny, but i agree a shift kit should help make things stay together a little better

EFI live, or maybe a diablosport predator, any intake that you like, and a good 3" exhaust, magnalow makes a nice, throaty but not obnoxious sounding exhaust for the GM 5.3, im guessing it should bolt onto a 6.0

Garrett you should take a look at 496B.B.'s post at the top of the GM gas section, in the SBC post, pretty good info in there for you

the tranny is bone stock and hasnt been touched for the 150k that it has on it. i dont want to turn up the power and kill the trans. its probably time for a trans flush, new filter, and maybe a shift kit.

well, i decided im going to try to find another 4l80e and build it myself, then ill just swap it and my stocker. after that come either just a tune from Blackbear since it since it will have the intake and exhaust already done or its gettin some injectors, a turbo, and a tune. this could get fun.
