    Default Getting more HP's outta my pickup!

    I have a 2005 silverado4x4. 5.3l. I have been looking for ways to get more power out of it. I think I finally have the right set up! I had a built catback dual exhaust made, K&N drop in stock filter replacement, And a diablo sport predator tuner. That all work out very well. Then I found out about having a custom tune built. Did some research and found out about Diablew tunes! It so far has been the best bang for my buck. My truck runs great! It now pulls like you would not believe. I am very happy with it. The only other thing is that I have put a 2in truxxs leveling kit in.

    It sounds like you have made some nice changes to your ride!! We would love to see some video of a dead stopped pull and rolling pull. A custom Dyno tune will an even bigger difference.

    does the 2005 have a mechanical fan?

    cause removing that and going electric will give you about 10 HP easy.... theyre big fans
    Gas was $1.83 when Obama took office.....
