my ECSB z71 sucks at power brakes. when i go to spin' em they spin but slow. they catch posi but my rear end is only limited. i have the 5.3 motor and 3.73 rear. my friend has a little s10 ECSB v6 with posi-lock and a 4.10 rear (he also has tires pretty close to my width) and can do sweet power brakes. i figure he can do good power brakes because of the rear end weight to torque ratio.
so here is my question if i get a 4.10 rear put in can i do better power brakes? like will it improve pretty decent? and what else will help me do'em better? beside S/C and T/C. dont have money to do that. o yeah i went to my dealer and to get a 4.10 rear put in it would cost $1500 parts and labor and to get a 4.10 rear and diff lock front and rear $3500.... it sounds too high to me......

thanks

The problem is the tuning, you have pretty much no ignition advance so no power.

Sounds like way too much money for me. Although I don't see the point in going from 3.73 to 4.10, the improvement just isn't worth it. Especially so you can burn out better? :think:

Watch out, those G80 limited slips like to explode. They don't call them grenades for nothing. :read: Burnouts are the best way to do it too.

what type of tuning do you mean? would ppIII make it do better burnouts or would the venom be better? and with pulleys would that make it do burn outs better?


Dude, burn outs are BAD on the tranny and rear axle. Please don't.

what tuning would get me "better acceleration". i dont know why i am talking about better burnouts.....i got new tires so i dont do'em any more. i only did a few burnout on my stock crappy tires and spun'em in the wet pavement a bit.

and o yeah i like killing kittens :evil:

Just get a nelson tune and call it a day :D
99-00=$375
01-02=$425
03-04=$490

If your truck is 99-00 then you won't be spending much more than you would on a hypertech programmer. The lil bit of extra $$$ you have to put down is worth it :imo
