    Whether you’re after horsepower and torque, fuel economy, ride comfort or reliability, the Duramax-equipped rigs coming from Chevy are tough to beat – they hold their value much better than their competitors. New Chevrolet Silverado 2500 6.6L Midnight Edition in classic Black color proves it the best. That's why we've chosen it for our new project and this post is going to be the first one in our build thread.

    We've teamed with our friends at Afe and our first video review is dedicated to their Power Package, designed for our project truck. This package includes 2 most successful and dyno-proven Afe products - Momentum Air Intake System and Scorcher Tune Module. Both of them result in additional 70 horsepower and 138 lb-ft of torque, that wasn't possible with the factory setup.

    Read more about aFe Momentum Air Intake System here

    Find out more about aFe Scorcher HD Module on this page

    Our tech expert Greg prepared a detailed video review, where he describes all the features of this Power Package, shows how it should be installed and tests it on the road.



    We are yet to find out how great this truck can be, once it's loaded with the best aftermarket accessories available. Stay with us – subscribe to this thread and our Youtube channel to follow on the news!

    What upgrade would you like to see next on our Project Chevy Silverado?

    High-quality and durable performance shocks are a must for your truck if you want it to react quicker to imperfections of the road giving you a comfortable and secure ride on gravel or any other kind of terrain. That's why we've decided to make them our next add-on to Chevy Silverado build and narrowed our choice to Fox 2.0 performance chocks, which you can see on the most desert and off-road trucks.

    These shocks deliver race-dominating performance in a hassle-free bolt-on package. They feature aluminum shock body, that dissipates heat three times faster than steel. Each shock has a 5/8" chrome-hardened shaft and valving that's been finely tuned to offer your truck excellent off-road performance without making your street ride too harsh. Its never been easier to ensure stability, perfect handling and superior performance for any truck, than adding a set of Fox Shocks.

    Greg will show you how to do it by yourself in his new video review:

    New video review on our next upgrade to Chevy Silverado build is ready! Quite predictably we've decided to go with a lift kit after Fox suspension shocks that we showcased in the previous video on Youtube. ReadyLift specializes in components for off-road enthusiasts who want get maximum ground clearance and minimum changes in the handling. The main benefit of ReadyLift Kits is that they allow you to add increased tire sizes without compromising on your truck's suspension geometry. Well, this particular kit allows using tire up to 37''.

    ReadyLIFT thoroughly tests each kit to ensure that your truck will be leveled without overloading or adding excessive strain to any of your factory suspension components. Every kit comes complete, allowing you to accomplish the lift properly and safely without buying any extra components.
