    Added a ton of motor work to my LQ9 in my 03 Escalade.........

    Hey everyone!! I haven't posted in a long time so I figured I would touch base. I have added a cam ( Comp Cam LS1 XR265HR-14 ), Gibson headers valve springs, valve seals, ported and polished the heads, as well as dyno tuned it all in. This paired with the Corsa cat back and Magnaflow high flow cats and the Volant cold air intake really paired wonderful. This truck is rockin now!!

    The cam is mild enough for stop and go, as well as get up and go. It lopes pretty good in deed. I just wonder what is next. I do have a little trans work as well. Torque converter I would love to bump to 3000. I added plates in the trans already. i was getting a hesitation between 2-3 band at WOT. That with a body tune made it shift soooo much better. The Superchips Cortex has a nice feature for shift points and pressures.
