I just want to modify mine to beat 4.3's, then I'll be happy with the ****ty motor.....It just needs turbo, or nitrous, and some new pistons, and some this....and that.......and, its so much work, but it'll still be putting the smack on 4.3's

Why did you go with 3.42 gears instead of 3.73 or 4.10's?

Cause the only gear you can get with the auto in the 6 is the 3.42's:thumbup:

Lower temp stat does nothing for engine life. engines are actually calibrated for higher temp. if you dont reprogram the ecu for the new therm will not see any change in performance. can actually hurt performance becuase truckwill never go to closed loop mode..

2.2 I love it

I also have a 2.2 xtreme and don't care if I can be faster than a 6 cyl equipped car or truck. But I do want to slightly modify for more city acceleration so as not to be so easily passed. What gets me is my auto transmission wants to redline the puppy if your into throttle at half or beyond. And the shifts are'nt positive enough to hold constant acceleration through shifts. Robbing the high reving engine of horsepower. I am running Mobil 1 to keep the engine happy for years. I would love to keep this one until paid off. I bought it brand new 8 months ago. And now it has 6600 mi. And its already had a new passenger door and repaint of the right side. Got to love those insured drivers and companies who fix your car when the things hit the fan. Or in my case the right side of your truck. Anyway I think this site is cool and I am going to pay particular attention to this section.
