    Not be a let downer, but the stock 5.3 in the colorado dyno's at 240hp at the wheels. 300 hp is at the crank. Mine isn't stock either, I'll post a video here in a minute.

    Here's a video for you, cammed, stalled, TBSS rear axle swap, still in the process of being finished. This took over a year to complete, I'm pretty sure we can take down a 5.3.

    We are going to the Carlisle truck nationals this year for sure, last year we were going to go but an electrical gremlin reared it's head the weekend before the show....
    [MENTION=35420]Alex[/MENTION] ha ha!! Well If an old man is driving it, don't worry he's harmless but If you see a young girl driving it then BEWARE!!! I love a good street race, and the truck sound wicked at WOT!! Once we get the truck all finished, I will upload a video of us trying out the line lock!!

    I don't believe the Colorado loses 20% of the 5.3L horsepower through the drive train.

    The Silverado has 315HP at the crank and 275 at the rear wheels with a 5.3L. That's a 13% loss in the drive train.
