Seeing your 2 latest postings, you must have a vengeance going with some 5.3L buddy of yours or something! I know you mentioned that you're looking at new trucks 4.8 vs 5.3 and comparing, and I really think that the $1500-$2000 dollar difference for 10HP and 20-30 ft-lbs is not worth it. IMO. Based on the other posting, upgrading exhaust and filter all ready has you close to if not equal to a 5.3L and the nelson tune should get you by a 5.3L with no problem.

No, im just wanting to put up a fight against 5.3's that wanna give me trouble, it's just good to hear that a 4.8 doesnt start out all that much behind a 5.3. I should be well off with my plans.
