    All depends on how many miles and how well the engine has been taken care of. If it's a bit on the worn out side you don't want to add to much power to the top of it and blow out the bottom of it. But if it's still tight and runs strong you should be ok with all those goodies.
    [/SIGPIC]07 Silverado LS factory 20's, spray in bedliner, in-bed cargo managment system, matching tint on front windows, K&N CAI, and Hypertech Max Engery Tuner and yet even more mods to come.

    Default ok

    thanks! i bought her with 90k miles and she is at 115k now but i havent beat her, i bought the truck then the trans blew and so did the rear end so they have been replaced and should be fine. the motor i take great care of but am unsure of the previous owner, there are no tic's or noises of any sorts, so hopefully it will be good. thanks again. but would you happen to know exactly how much the block can hold? (with out me needing new rods lifters and so on)
