    Got no problem gettin' to 60. Gas wise...it sucks! Course with the 5.3 V8 it's going to do that. What I hate about it....it cuts off at 90! I want to disconnect the govenor but I think it voids my warranty. I wouldn't know how to do it anyways. Any ideas? I would also like to add a K&N to it. I heard that it gives a few extra HP, but I also heard that it doesn't do anything.

    An intake doesn't do anything unless you get a tune that encorporate's that into the equation, and you don't have to disconnect the governor to get that problem fixed. ANY programmer/tuner out there can take the governor/top speed limiter off of your truck, when you take it in for service you shouldn't have to remove that feature but just to be safe you would put it back to stock. It is the easiest feature to use on a programmer, they give you step by step instructions also.

    Heavy Chevy let's put it this way, my truck is so slow I KNOW my mom's 2006 Aveo can kill me all the way no matter what speed. NO JOKE! I love my truck for slow or slower, till death do us part!

    My gas mileage is pretty good I get around 22 to 23 on the highway. My 0-60 is about 6.7 seconds and that isnt bad to me for a 4.8

    0-60 probably somewhere around 10 min lol. But that's ok because who wants to go 60 over rocks and through mud anyway. MPG last I checked it was getting around 15 mpg on the frwy. Same here love my slow Suzie and already decided that I will need no coffin cuz I'm getting buried in my truck.
