So, I have had my 2004 silverado since 2008, and it has seen quite a bit of action. It started life as a 4.8L v8, with ~300hp. I also added a touch screen in-dash GPS / radio, remote start, automatic door locks, a CB, and some other fun toys. It also had a 2400 watt amp with a rockford fosgate T-2. Since, I enjoy going fast, within two years of obtaining it, I installed a supercharger on it, as well as a custom exhaust system. Shortly after, I blew up the transmission. Here is a video: So, After I drove it for a few more years, I ended up melting a few pistons... Normal Piston: #6 and #8 So, by this time, I decide to go all out and rebuild the truck piece by piece. The first step was to get rid of the old... And build up the new. ^ 390ci LQ9. So, once I acquired a new engine and transmission.... It was time to get started. The transmission is a TCI 6x warranted at 1200hp. http://www.tciauto.com/tc/6x-six-speed-transmission-package-gm-bellhousing-outlawtm-shifterhtml So, lets toss all of this in! And, lets get it fired up! Stay tuned for part 2!
