6.0 chevy

What are my option for adds for additional hp? Pulling 13k 5th wheel, only travel 1000 miles a yr with the trailer, that why I didn't go diesel.

what gears does your truck have? There are some good tuners out there for the 6.0

that's a big plus right there. I would look into a tuner. That will give you most bang for the buck. Exhaust will give you a few horsepower, but not anything you will really notice. Maybe in conjunction with a tuner it might make a difference. I traded my 6.0 truck for a diesel last summer. I only tow maybe 2000 miles a year, but don't regret it at all. The power difference it unbelievable. The torque is exactly double, and it feels like it. Fuel economy much better too.

the 6.0 can be tuned, but premium fuel will be the requirement for now on, getting regeared above 4.10 could be a option, but milage would be affected everywhere. if only 1k miles towing just deal with the crappy mileage and no power towing in any hills. Every chevy HD with the 6.0 is standard with the 4.10 you can get the 3.73 in the LD version but that is even worse towing, not sure it even comes in the LD version anymore. Is it a 1500 or 2500??

I am a member of Denali Trucks and most everyone on that site recommends Advanced Products 2/12/2005 and their custom tunes...I will be going that route if I experience any issues with my power. So far my SUV has not shown any lack of power. Good luck....
