Thread: Hi there!

Hybrid View

    Default Hi there!

    Hi everyone! My name is Mike. I live in Southeastern Kentucky. Living in this region means there is only one good paying occupation around, Coal Mining! I am a proud coal miner, but hate the hours i work. Having two kids to raise as well, I seldom have time for anything else! Who hasn't had that problem?

    Anyway, I have a 2005 Chevy Silverado 1500. Ive had the truck for about two years and am starting to need a little bit more out of it. The truck came with a 4.8L LR4 engine. There is not a lot of info on aftermarket parts and fittment for those parts that i have found yet, and thats why i am here. I know i will be asking some rather entry level questions, so please be patient.

    Beyond that i do have one more vehicle that i am working on. i am trying to restore a '91 Mustang GT. Yeah i know, im not crazy about Ford either! Thats why im putting in a 383 Stroker down in that little body. It might be Ford tough, but it will be Chevy stuff under my hood! LOL!

    I look forward to getting to know you guys, and learning more about my truck. Lord knows i sure am gonna need the help!

    Have a good un!
