  1. What ever happened to a simple " No thanks, I would rather sell them with the car"
  2. Sounds like your vent tube is clogged. Also try filling the tank at a slower rate. might help burp the tank.
  3. VIP RV. Jim’s customer service truly is next level
  4. You need a " Cough Cough, Special Smog ". I have only heard about these, never any first hand experience.
  5. I have been using a hand me down Weber q for the last three years and it cooks great! I say hand me down because my brother used it for 4 years before me. The problem with many portable grills is the do not get hot enough and or cook unevenly. I have never had either of this problems with the Weber. Also the cast iron grate is a nice bonus.
  6. Hi Everyone, My current commute from the inland empire to Irvine is about 55 miles each way. On the way to work there is very little traffic, but on the way home it is about 70% bumper to bumper traffic. I currently have a newer Honda Accord with the standard gas engine. I am wondering if I get a newer hybrid how much I will save in fuel. I spend on average $60.00 a week in gas just to commute. Has anyone seen any savings by going with a hybrid?
  7. Great looking car and smoking deal!!
  8. Good Morning Everyone, is there anyone on the board that can provide a Carfax copy if I give you the VIN? Thank you!
  9. In my honest opinion I would look at PPEI Tuning. The Mini Maxx is older technology and H&S Performance went out of business. I have heard great things about PPEI and there tunes are supposed to top level. https://www.ppei.com/vehicles/lml/
  10. To be 100% honest with you, the truck will stink pretty bad if there is no breeze and if you within a few feet of the truck. I have heard if you leave the cat in place it significantly reduces the smell, but I have removed both the cat and DPF. Having the truck not smell is one the best parts of the DPF system.
  11. For the exhaust you should be able to leave the cat in place, but I am not sure. I went with a down pipe back 5" exhaust and I know it is a bit of overkill. By only doing the delete pipe that will save you a lot of install time. My only concern with the higher sulfur count would that it could possibly clog the cat, but removing the cat does add a couple of hours to the job as you have to remove the transmission cross member and also move the Transmission over to the side to get it out. For the EGR, I left everything place so it could still pass smog when I need it to. You do not necessarily need a boost gauge, but I would install a high quality EGT gauge. Install is not to hard (Drilling into passenger side exhaust manifold) and its a nice piece of mind to have.
  12. I have a 2011 LML that I deleted. Truck runs better and my mileage went up. The toughest part is doing the install, then having to put it back to smog every two years. After you have swapped the exhaust once, its pretty easy the next time. I bought my tuner used (H&S Mini Maxx) and found the exhaust on Ebay. I did add a lift pump and guages, so for the total delete in parts alone I am into it for about $2300.00 I will say that it was money well spent and the truck is a whole different animal. Please let me know if you have any questions.
  13. X2 for SoCal Super Trucks. They did my 2011 2500 CC long bed and it was perfect.
  14. I have had really good luck with Meguiar's Back to Black trim restorer. Takes a bit of elbow grease and can get messy, but really darkens the plastic to where it looks new again. https://www.meguiars.com/automotive/products/ultimate-black
