Re: Sierra Club: Excursion is 21st-century version of the Edsel

Bottom line, I think they're just jealous. My Ex kicks ass and gets better mileage than my Toyota Tundra ever did.

Re: Water Injection

Huh, a lot of turbo cars, especially rally cars, have a setup to spray water on the outside of the intercooler core. Obviously it doesn't help a cold vehicle, but anytime after that it can provide a...

Re: free horsepower tweaks

If you go with synthetic oil you ought to pick up between 1 and 3hp. And yes, that one is actually dyno proven!

Re: those 6.0 can pull, from a duramax man

Calling two guys pulling 6500lb trailers up an 8% grade "street racing" is a bit of a stretch SmokeyWren.

Re: Codes Found With Diablo Sport Preditor

I went in to get a reflash in hopes that my truck would then be compatible with the predator (since it's a mid-2003). They did their scan and said we can't go any further (can't reflash) without...

Re: Alright which is better EDGE or Diablo Pred??????

I have had both the Edge box and the Diablo tuner. The Edge box works great, although it did cause my PCM to freak out about every 12k miles. It did not leave any codes behind. The Diablo tuner still...

Re: Nitto's in the snow?

I had a set of 295/75 Terra Grapplers on a Toyota Tundra. Because I lived in Maine at the time I ran dedicated snow tires, but I was quite impressed with the Grapplers overall.

Re: 140 MPH @ 4000 RPM

Having been over 130 in at least 3 other vehicles I have no doubt the Excursion will pull north of 130. It accelerates harder at the 100mph mark than I ever thought possible for a truck, plus that...

Info/horror story

First the info, I can say for certain that at least on my 6.0L Ex there is no secret code left behind by the Edge module. This is because twice now my truck has ceased functioning entirely once it...

Roofeditor, as an Edge box owner, I think Quad has dyno'd at least against the Edge box. I have heard that all the boxes dyno within spitting distance of each other regardless. Bottom line, my truck...

Re: Fuel mileage gains?

You read that right, running 1000+ miles a week, cruise control set at 72ish before and after, I lost 1.5 mpg. It happens occasionally from what I've been told, although those of us that lost mpg...

Re: Fuel mileage gains?

Around town the only way you're going to get 20 mpg is the "cut off the back half of the truck" mod. On the highway adding a tonneau cover is worth between 0.5 and 1.0 mpg from the aerodynamic...
