    Howdy from Texas

    I have more projects than one man should = ADHD. Current projects are a running and driving 1972 Suburban, I have a 2006 6.0/4L80E that I picked up a few weeks ago destined for the Burb. I also have a 5.3L/4L60E combo out of a Tahoe that I have been storing for the last 8 years...I recently got it running on the stand. I had to swap the injectors as I figured I would. Luckily the 6.0 was a willing donor. I am also building a couple of 67-72 C10 short beds, and a 1951 Fleetline special. I have a couple of 2 door SUV's a 2wd Tahoe and a 4x4 Blazer... as if I don't already have enough stuff going on, I want to learn the tuning side of EFI. I may want a cam in the Burb as I would like to tow with it.

    Thanks for letting me in, I will try to play nice. Darryl

    Honestly for towing with a LQ4, would suggest a set of 862 heads and something like a 212/218 cam. 5.3 heads will give you more bang for the buck than the cam alone.

    Thanks for the suggestion. I will start looking around. I haven’t given it much thought yet.
