So now that I am not buying the 07 escalade, I will be leaving america before the new ext comes out, I have decided to modify my own.
I just bought lambo doors and I am painting the truck candy red, I am also going to continue the red throughout the inside of the truck. Also, I am going to lower the truck 2 and 3 inches in front and back respectively.


Now the last two things that I want to add are a super charger and an upgraded tranny.


How many miles is too many for a supercharger? also what tranny can I buy?
Car has been kept in very good shape, no engine trouble, nothing other than synthetic has been used, nothing less than 91 octance has ever seen the gas tank (I did experiment with 87 once or twice), In other words engine is still close to perfect.

Thanks

How many miles are you talking about? Any shop can check compression and see if the motor is still tight. The tranny...well...depends on what kind of HP your laying down. I don't know much about the 'lade trannies yet as I really haven't started to mod anything just yet. Just went in for window tint today!

I currently have 60k miles on it. If you find anything out about trannys please tell me. Thanks

In doing some reading today, I have seen several posts about this tranny problem, however I have yet to experience it, nor have I found any evidence of it. I have true dual exhaust on the escalade, and a chip modification. I am looking at either a forced air induction or supercharger next, so an answer to the mileage question would be good. However like someone else said, any shop good enough to do the super charger install, should check the compression and advice from there.
