fine69, how can you be on the fence? It is about the best thing you can do to your truck. Go ahead and do it, you will not regret it at all. By the way, do you have any pictures of your billet grill?

I'm only holding off cause my Wife is pregnant with our first child, so I'm slowly saving up the money. I don't have any pics of the grille yet, I'll get some and post 'em.

I just purchased the entire package as well. Did the upgrade on the intake and exhaust AFE and purchased the TCM as well. When I get home it will hopefully be waiting for me to install. Will post how well the install went when all is done. Great Christmas present.

I daily drive on the 250 tune, trans feels good, good power...

I wouldn't DD on the 310 mainly bc of the transmission (not bc of the touchy throttle). I want to see how much longevity I can get on this setup. I drive about 30K miles a year, and 3 with the spartan stuff on it. No issues as of yet. Knock on wood!!

I hear the tcm + 310 is really rough on the transmission, be safe with it.
I dont know where you heard that... But I have been around here a long time and havent heard a thing along those lines. The 310 is tough on the tranny WITHOUT the TCM... With the TCM its a whole different story!

Add a set of traction bars you got yourself damn near stock longevity unless you beat the **** out of your truck constantly.

so you're saying, it is terrible on it, unless he buys the traction bars.



well, i didn't see traction bars on his list for one, and 2 years on an internet forum isn't that long LOL. Now if you had a 2005 or early join date, i would take this into consideration (but i don't know how long this forum has been around)

I understand all that, I was one of the 3 adminstrators of one of the largest forums on the internet (LS1/fbody/corvette forum) that has been around since 2000.

some people have heard of it, it is called www.ls1tech.com. Hard to say 2 years is a lot when you have been on a forum for 8 years and the countless amount information.
