    ok so ive heard alot people say i shouldnt tune my chevy up until it starts skipping. I have 97,000 miles on the original plugs and wires. should i do a tune up? also heard these vortecs is picky about the plugs you use, not sure what brand to use. and to make everything else aggravating my truck is the 07 classic body style with the 4.8 in it.

    my ride is a 07 silverado classic crew cab with the 4.8. 2 1/2 drop in the back to level it up, got two custom boxes built that house two 10" fosgate p3 subs and a mmatts 1400 watt amp to drive them puppies. custom painted interior pieces to match the lovely green color on the outside. custom air intake, bypasses the air warmer in the throttle body (to flow a little cooler air) jet power programmer.

    now on to me well, 24 engaged about to have my first child and just a chevy fan. nothing like a rock. after three fords down i had to get a real truck!!!! i work 2nd shift at a plant that produces air handlers and chillers. im an industrial mechanic and electrician, that plays with cars for a hobby :lol:
