Re: engines. 4.9 VS. 5.7
My wifes '01 Tahoe has a 5.3, and my 97 has a 5.7. I know that the 5.3 is supposed to make more power, but I can tell you right now that my truck would whip that thing up one side and down the other. I know a Tahoe probably weighs a lot more than a pu, but I also have the 33's, toolbox of junk, full grill guard and rear pipe bumper etc,. So, I think right now we are about fair in reguards to weight. The only thing engine wise that I have done to my truck is a K&N...and I do have that "Jetlike" tranny. Still, the Tahoe is fast, but it aint gonna outrun my 97.
