Hey guys, been lurking for quite sometime. Figured I should introduce myself. Been a member of PT.net since '07 and have had a few fairly quick vehicles including a turbo'd Silverado 5.3 that ran 7.64 @Kennedale on stock 20s (4wd) with only 8.5 lbs boost. Just picked up an '08 Rc Colorado last week with 3.7 and 4l60, G80 and 3.73s. Kind of wondering if the previous owner may be a member bc it has a K&N and Flowmaster and feels pretty strong. It was the burnt orange truck at Young Chevrolet with low miles. If anyone knows anything about it I'd love some history. Gonna do a few mods maybe even turbo but probably not a swap because I love the gas mileage. Thanks guys! Ted

Welcome. The V8 mileage isn't that bad. Im at an average of 17.85 mpg across my last 60 tanks worth of fill ups. I haven't owned my truck long. Just 7 months. Some have been getting better mileage after a tune. I'm still under GM 100k mile Powertrain warranty, so I haven't gone that route yet. I have seen up to 22mpg on a tuned 5.3l Colorado. Dont fear the swap. Lol

I haven't been to Kennedale since the late 90s. Miss that place.

That's impressive, may need to reconsider in the future! Had to do something, my 2500 6.0 averages 11.5 :( Thanks for the welcome guys!

Wow thanks for the invitation. I'll see what the wife is up to. Maybe she'll be busy with yard work or shopping or something lol. I took a pic today. Forget how to resize it though so it won't upload. Got my Backflip F1, Popnlock and billet grill on today. Settling in to the little truck and I love it.
