Re: Front brake rotors feel warped

Oh yeah, that's their kind of price. They're good quality too. I always get the black powder coated ones, but that's just me. I have their front and rear packages on my Silverado and Caprice, powder coated, cross drilled and slotted. No complaints here. Just did a rear brake job on a 2004 Buick Cent...

Re: Front brake rotors feel warped

Check out http://maxbrakes.com Their packages are super reasonable and offer regular rotors to cross drilled and slotted, whatever you prefer at a great price point. Their semi metallic pads are their upgrade from ceramic. Long story short I've done probably 10 brake jobs with their products for the...

New whiteline bushings

I replaced every single front suspension part summer of last year, and was not impressed with the end result. After getting an alignment the steering was noticeably looser than before. I decided the only thing left would be hubs/bearings or replace the old rubber strut mounts. So I did it in a coupl...

Re: Foctory Remote Start

Yeah, not achievable without WAMS, there's no option for remote start BCM programming through TIS. It's definitely a proprietary patch done by WAMS.

Easiest is TIS and VXdiag, but yes it could in theory be done by dealer too. But probably for an arm and a leg.

Re: Foctory Remote Start

Smwalker, in my Remote Start adventure thread. I did the same process. Moose and I talked quite a bit about it. Bought new fobs, paired and matched, bought 40 dollar TIS subscription, flashed RKE and Immobilizer modules for yes remote start. Using VXdiag. Bought new hood latch with connector. Car fl...

Re: P0335 Slow Cranking When Hot

Yeah I would also check plugs or just replace them, 80k with that many idle hours they're probably shot.

The factory plugs are usually rated for 100k but that's a lot of idle time.

Plugs are cheap, and make a big difference.

Re: P0335 Slow Cranking When Hot

I know the system does take preference to charge one side first, but I'm not sure which one. I have a second battery wired in, I run a smaller motorcycle battery for cheap insurance for my 1000w and 300w amps. I have mine wired inline, but still separated by the circuit breakers. During the winter m...

Re: P0335 Slow Cranking When Hot

Common sense, but I would always start with battery/alternator load test, and grounds. There are several grounds in the engine bay to check. Also check underhood fuse box positive and ground (behind box and on its side nearest to firewall) for corrosion or loose bolts. Also, if you replaced the cran...

Re: Brake Speculation

Call technafit. When I called they knew exactly what I was talking about.

And it shipped with the Chev-4500 label on the bag. It would be nice if it was on their site, but it's also not a top seller.

I was pleased with the build quality and fit of mine.

Re: Best 6.0 gas tuner?

+1 on HPtuners, would recommend them. Plus not only can you tune yourself but you can turn in your stock tune file to a shop/website and they can tune it and send it back to you. Then you'd write it to the ECM/TCM. Plus I still think they still give you 8 credits, which is enough for 4 individual ve...
