    Talking Hello from Cincinnati

    Hi, I am just introducing myself to the forum. My name is Adam, current project is a 1999 K1500 Suburban 5.7 Vortec that is getting head gaskets and possibly new heads/exhuast. Motor is currently stock with the exception of a K&N. Truck has 175K and has become like a member of the family. My wife, kids... even the dogs love this truck. Any input or suggestions about how to budget build for more power/MPG are greatly appreciated. Was wondering if upgrading heads is worth it without a cam and what the best route is for getting some headers on it and a more free flowing exhaust.
    Thanks in advance,
    Adam

    Welcome to the site!! Unless you are ready to do a full tune, to try and delete the 4 O2 sensors we have or invest alot of money in getting the full exhaust reworked to be able to add long tubes and keep the sensors then its not worth it, shortys will work fine but wont get quite the numbers of long tubes. I have done exhaust from cats on back, K&N and a hypertech III and am pretty happy with the results, nothing tremendous but the tranny likes the update form the hypertech and so does the gas tank and wallet
