Basic Performance Upgrades. These modifications are: A full length three inch down-pipe (with or with-out high flow cats), 3″ (75mm) or bigger cat-back exhaust system, raised boost (18psi), and the required boost cut eliminator (GReddy BCC) needed to achieve that boost without activating the factory fuel cut-off at 14-15psi. These are the modifications that have proven to provide the best HP-to-$$$ ratio.
Finally, you need to check the engine compartment. You need to check the fluid levels. If the oil is dark colored it should be changed. If the automatic transmission fluid is not bright red the transmission is likely in bad shape. A major expense and not worth the time and trouble.
catalytic converter price guide – Fitted to a cars exhaust, this device helps to reduce the toxicity of emissions produced by a combustion engine. It ‘converts’ toxic gases into less-toxic ones.
All v8 equipped models come standard with electronic stability control. This includes the impressive proactive roll avoidance system. Safety is certainly priority as evidenced in their number one placing in front and side crash tests. Top that off with being ranked number one in initial quality, and I’m sure you can see the benefit of checking out the 2009 Chevy Silverado.
Attach the new hangers to the parts, and bolt them onto the underside of the car from the front of the car. Do not tighten the bolts all the way. This step will wait until after all your pieces are fitted together. Fit the pieces together with the use of new gaskets. This will ensure your new exhaust is free of leaks. After all the relevant pieces are fitted together correctly and securely, you can start tightening down each section from manifold to tailpipe. Make sure the bolts are tight.
Yes, the stock fuel system is very safe and reliable to 450RWHP, although I would recommend a fuel pulsation damper bypass. Anything over that, and I would highly recommend having the car dyno’d, and using a wide-band O2 sensor (not a cheap A/F gauge connected to the stock O2) to check the fuel ratio at your high boost setting. 11.5:1 would be a safe fuel ratio.
So the side effects of HHO are good additions to any engine. Not only do you improve your MPG, you’ll reduce your harmful emissions and gain horse power. Sounds like a no brainer. These kits are completely reversible and you can turn your cell on and off. The components to fabricate an HHO cell wont break the bank, and will quickly pay for itself. Go green and save some cash, the Earth your wallet and the EPA will thank you not to mention the IRS rebates.
