I have a tough time with FI on an engine not designed for it. Way too much shit to go wrong. And the heat management isn’t there ....
All depends on the boost level and the tuning. That's why I'd lean toward a company that has more resources for tuning and development like Edelbrock. Edelbrock makes a ton of different supercharger applications. If they were making them unsafe for stock engines, they'd be out of business fast.

Hard to say if heat management is an issue or not. The cooling systems are pretty beefy on these trucks to achieve high tow ratings, it's probably adequate unless under heavy load.

The systems do have a water to air intercooler, which will help intake temps.
It is certainly a name I’d trust. Let’s say it’s fine for street driving because frankly anything is overbuilt due to safety margins and being sold in Phoenix in the dead of summer. However how about towing ... a supercharged motor uphill grade 6000lb trailer ... yea um... that shit will not be ok unless you have a bigger radiator etc, pistons may have some issues with that as well.

Occasional freeway hooning no problem.

Agreed, but I'm sure Edelbrock takes that into account. They're claiming 340 WHP when Mallet claims 360. Sounds like they've already tuned it back a bit from what's "possible".

My guess would be that Chris took some time off because he has read the dialogue on this page 1,345 times and decided to spend some of his free time doing something besides beating a horse to death.

Yep. Turbos sound cool too if you can actually hear them.

On the bright side, a Deepwood green ext cab LT truck is super rare.

Why? Because a forumbreh with HPTuners can't figure it out?

These things are super complex. Not that it's an excuse, but it's a known issue. Odd that it hasn't been solved yet, but it's being actively worked on internally.

The fact that OE engineers can't "figure out" an issue for 2+ years is extremely :|

I mean, I get it. If they mess with TC engagement points, they'll lose MPG, which means they'll need to recertify the vehicle with the EPA and issue new window stickers, etc. They'll also increase NVH, which will :triggered: the :fatty: republic by shaking the titties about too much on shifts.

I miss my Frontier. And I really liked my Colorado but the repeated transmission issues were the final :triggered: for me.

Dplac (or hive)

By vin, mine is showing the trans shop 4CBA, 5CBA OR 4CCA.

Whats the differences?? :iono:

vin is: 3GTP1UEC7EG141320
