Where\'s the Power???

I have an 04' Z71 Silverado 5.3L 3.73 rearend 1/2 ton supercab. I have 295/75-16's. JBA's, Volant intake, 3" Flowmaster turned down after muffler, programmer. It dynoed at 246HP and 264torque. THAT SUCKS!!! My brother has my old 03' 2wd 5.3 and has same exhaust. Nothing else. He kills me in a race. He smokes the tires even in 3rd. What's my problem?? I know it's 4wd but does it make that much difference? What else can I do? MAFS? Throttlebody? Injectors? Plugs? Wires? Please help! Thanks

Sounds like you don't have enough bolt-ons.

Hmmm.. 295's vs. 245's... I wonder.

Swap gears, or live with it.

Dude.. or dudette, whatever..

Chilllllll


Like I said, you pretty much have one really good option to go with. Re-gear.... you'll gain what you lost from the larger tires. Not all the power that hits the asphalt comes soley from the block. Well, in a way it does.. but it has some factors thrown into the mix. You can chase your tail looking for bolt on horsepower.. or you can gain it by correcting your tall gearing... no sweat of my arse. you do what you want.

Oh, and neon adds at least 87 hp, not 50. But, what do I know.. I'm just a fag.. wee .. a fag...

Oh, and wipe that Kool-aid off your face before you come in here calling people names. Otherwise I'll be likely to rip your keaster out and snap it down over the top of your head like a little brown sweatband. Now run along, boy, ya botherin' me...
