    No De-tuning on Mine

    I don't know about your friends Colorado, but my 2009 4WD, 4 door, Z71 with the 5.3 runs just fine. In the 1/8th mile, I have never lost to a stock full size Chevy, Ford, or Dodge truck and yes the ones with Hemi's too. The only thing that I have done to mine is drop the "Y" pipe and replace it with a dual inlet, dual outlet series 60 Flowmaster muffler and run Mobile 1 oil and filter in it. If you are ever in Fort Worth and see a black one with plates that say V8COLO, line yours up at a stop light and we will see what you think!

    The part with the 350Z definitely overtakes the gas mileage problem.

    Before getting my Silverado, I looked at both a V8 Colorado and a V8 Dakota. Honestly, if I could have gotten a better deal on the Dakota, I probably wouldn't be a member here. I wasn't impressed with the Colorado's space, even with it being a crew cab. I guess I shouldn't say much since I have an ex cab Ranger which is even worse, but I digress ;)
