I know its the wrong site but the truck sites I know of either talk about off roading or arent updated as much as this site. Here is my situation:
Just totalled 99 Camaro
Just bought Reg Cab Sht Bed 02 Silverado
It has 5.3 A4, 3.42 Limited Slip/ and aux trans cooler.
Aftermarket is only K&N FIPK and Dynomax muffler dumped.
Im wanting to put some performance into this beast and wake it up. I dont know where to start w/ it. Id like to see some baseline Dyno's and some w/ random mods done to it. any help would be appreciated.

BTW, put 4.10's in it. I picked up half a second in the 1/4 just by switching gears over my 3.23's! You wont notice any change in mpg either. Mine has stayed the same.

Thats some decent track times, I was gonna get some base runs today but it ended up raining, maybe next thursday. I got 3.42's and probably would only notice a diff if I upped to 4.10's but I dont know if Im up for that swap. Id rather start w/ engine rel;ated stuff.

Leave the 3.42's and turbocharge it, run some large-chamber, well flowing heads, and call it a day.

if you want to learn more about mods for these truck engines, check out the truck side of this forum.
i'm still not finished with it. my next round of mods are going to be ls6 intake, ported tb, and u/d pulleys. this is with stock heads also.
