i was kinda used to my cel shift light at 9400 but this thing only went to 6000 or so.. WTF??
Higher displacement can't rev out like the small stuff, it's 8.3/8.4L :lol:

Never messed with that generation.
Only played with the 90's cars & the new GTS.
There was a coupe SRT-10 at Copart recently that I would have liked to check out but the doors were locked. Also saw a convertible SRT-10 that was obliterated.

Not sure if its a gts but it is a black convertible this is the only pic i have of it right now in front of the C7

Thanks but not a second gen. They didn’t offer a convertible and a gts is just their term for a hard top instead of the t top like the rt/10

Ya i know about the whole bigger rotating stuff iv worked on small blocks for the past 20yrs (boats) and they rev 4800-5200rpm's and now have an ls powered truck which spins a bit higher. I just always loved bustin his balls bein he was a v8 guy and i love my high revs of my built lsvt, said i was good to spin to 10000 but set my shift light @9200-9400.

Speaking of Trailblazer's, forgot to post that we got my dad's running again.
Had a collapsed lifter, that was fun.
Now just needs some new tires and figure out what is the issue with that POS 4L60E.

Went to court on Monday.
Got there almost 90 minutes early, just to be the first one up to the stand and done in 3 minutes.
Set it for trial, no clue when that'll be.

Been lazy as s**t with SEMA photos lately.
Got another one done today but still about 140+ to go through.

Haven't done much today, going to go for a drive here in about an hour.
Was supposed to go get some Camino parts today, but pushed it back to tomorrow.




11:30p - Screw that, it's 47° outside. No walk, no drive.
Also, just received my passing notice from the exam I took a few days ago.

What kindof bad noises?
It's this high pitched whirring sound that's connected to engine rpm. At first I just thought it was the cold weather making the engine work harder to warm up, but now the sound persists even after the car's been running for a while. I'm starting to think it's a pulley going bad somewhere.

My guess would be alternator or water pump

How do you like the ss? Currently in between that or a srt8 as a daily

Srt8. Way better.

Thanks, that makes sense.

I opened the hood just now and listened to it, and can't for the life of me pinpoint where the sound is coming from.. It just emanates from the entire engine bay. I guess the next thing is to pull those belts and see if any of the pulleys are wobbly.

That’s what I’m thinking but the ss is quite a bit cheaper

Im working out in Oklahoma now. Definitely a nice place to spend the winter. Sounds like I’ll be back in Pennsylvania/Ohio again soon.
f**k pa and this Cold and snow bullshit. And this state is boring as you had seen

I love it, awd plenty of power with tasteful mods and its an ls motor.. the srt looks nice but the aftermarket for mopar is tougher..

Sent from my boujea ass phone
I’m still stuck. The aftermarket isn’t too bad, But I️t does cost a little bit more. A built trans is 5k instead of 3k. I️ have no clue wtf I’m doing. I️ just know I️ gotta be faster than her x5m in the garage

Do yourself a favor and go to harbor freight, get a mechanics stethoscope. Makes life much easier
