Well, a 6.0 will wax a 5.3.. Hold on there. I have a 200 z71 which has beat a BMW z3, 2 new Ram Hemi's and numeriousa so called rice burners. I don't know who your racing but I have an SS under my bealt as well and he was easy. I am under the assumtion that most of us who drive Z71's take our truck seriously. I had "Steve Cole," remap the puter after I installed the headers, GS Maf, HiPo Ignition, Nology and had the 80mm TB Cleaned and intake P&P'd. I am well over 360hp at 120k. I have babied this truck, yearly Flushs from the Rad to the Rear, Duralube each OC. My service record is 2" thick. I am going to now get the Tranny re-built to head off the problem with some cap that GM has an STB out but won't do anything about. GM has replaced under warranty the: Driveshaft, Rearend, Heads, Parking Brake at Rear Hub, 4 rotors and front boots. I expect to get another 200k from this truck. Me and the Wife are so pleased to find this Forum. I need some help finding a good shop in Orange County California that knows how to stroke my 5.3.. I'd appreciate any email or responces.
