Thanks for the info. I think I will play with 2.5" from the headers to the cat area and then 3" the rest of the way.
I would get an OBD II reader and confirm that the oil pressure is really this low. Seems these gauges are not that accurate. I have also heard of the oil pressure sending unit going bad/out.

Part number or link?

Can you tell me more about your exhaust?
I see you have a 3" single in and dual out. After the headers what do you have? OEM cats? Cat-less? What size of piping from the headers to the cat and...
Too thick and you won't have correct protection. Pretty much ALL oil is too thick at startup. Even a very good zero weight oil is too thick at startup to provide adequate protection. Until the oil...
Radiator is super easy to remove:
-Remove upper and lower shroud (15 minutes)
-Remove the upper mounts, two bolts (one on each side). There are two bolts holding it on but your remove one bolt...

What size of piping are you running? Is it the same size all the way back from the headers? I'm looking at long headers and then removing the cats and running a cat back custom built by me. I am...

Just bought a used 1999 GMC Suburban 1500. Power locks worked when we bought it from both switches on door. Remote unlock fobs were lost before we bought it so I don't know if they work.
Honestly, You'll be able to tow it, but controlling it will be the biggest problem. If you are even going to attempt it, I would have airbags on the truck. Drive slow, plan ahead.

I have found cheap remotes but there is no real point in getting a remote until the power locks work.
Sorry but this is about the worst advice I have ever heard.
You are crazy to NOT use synthetic oil. They cost more but they do a much better job and last much longer.
What exactly is "a...

Looking at the long headers with the Y-pipe, going to build a custom cat-back. Thinking a 50 series muffler with 3" cat-back, eliminating the cats.

Looking at Pacesetter longtubes for a 5.7L Burb.
Vehicle will be used to tow.

Any update? I have a 1999, when I bought it everything worked fine. 1 Week later, NONE of the locks will work. Just the inside switch, the original owner lost the remotes.
No sound , nothing.
I am sure it depends on cost. I would say your best bet is to buy one from a parts house that has a lifetime warranty on it. I have a Taurus that has a coolant bottle that always has problems. I...
Fort Collins here...
To each their own but this seems like a horrible idea. The money it will cost you and the trouble you will create cannot be worth the weight and fuel economy. Sell and buy another vehicle for...
Are these much of a change if any over stock? What is the size of the OEM headers? I have heard that shorty headers do very little to nothing for the 5.7l
I honestly don't know if they do or not. I assume they do. Most newer vehicles have side impact airbags in the seats, or at least the front.

Anyway I can get this procedure to check the locks? milehighassassin at gmail
My 1999 suburban just stopped working, like the buttons do nothing. I don't have the remotes, prior owner lost them.

Thanks guys. I actually already have the fuel filter ordered. I ordered a MANN filter. My other primary car is a VW TDi, MANN makes all the OEM stuff for VAG and are great quality.
I was just...
My instant thought is also no. but I have seen on many other makes of cars that the seats are a simple bolt in mod, even between generations. The hardest part is usually getting the airbag plugs to...

I don't know about Lowes, but Home Depot's bolts are junk. Very cheap Chinese garbage. Ace is the place for fasteners. Actually I've really grown to love ace. Good service in everyone I have been...
Is there a decent fix to the sag? I don't really want to go to a heavy rear end springs mostly because the trailer I tow right now if pretty light, 1700 lbs popup and about 900 lbs of snowmobile...
