    Hey all,

    Just bought a GMC Sierra 03' with a 4.8l and I havn't a clue on what to do next other than pipes and intake. She has a good start on her already...drop, headers, wheels, and sound. Just need to know whats good to do around the DIY area. Don't want to go to a shop for something I could do myself. Like I heard around that you can change the gear ratios fairly easy on these??? Or cams??? I just need help in general =p

    Thanks buddy.

    Beuller??? I did a look around the site and feel at a loss. To clearify, I come from the "economy class racers" =) I havn't a clue on V8s and trucks at the moment. I could tell you how to take apart a Ford Focus with just a 10mm socket and a hand full of hopes and dreams...LOL

    First, Welcome to the club Trav! Second.... like what do you want her to do? Move lower end power? more high end? you gonna hook up a super, or a bottle? What you want seems a little vague, and what you can do to a 4.8 litre is endless possibilities....
