Only 9 seconds? You think so? Couldn't they do 9 easy from the factory?

I am pretty sure trofeo is right here. The 5.3, 6.0, and 8.1 are the new gen engines for the Cheverolet/GMC trucks (full size). They replaced the 5.7 and the 7.4 (454). My dad had a 2001Suburban and opted for the 8.1 because he got a 2500 (3/4 ton) and didn't want the 6.0. Turns out that he didn't like the 8.1 because it was using oil (brand new). After 25K miles he traded it in on a Ford King Ranch with the 6.0 PowerStroke Diesel. The Cheverolet dealer said that the oil use was normal for the 8.1. We think it was just a bad engine. They wouldn't replace it with a new 8.1, to he went elsewhere. My dad really wanted a Duramax--but they weren't offered in a Suburban at the time. (I don't know if they are offered to this day).

naw, the sierra is a real dog. It'* really slughish and has no passing power at all. It redlines at only 3,900 RPM too. It has the (205 HP?) version of the 350. The dakota is a much lighter truck, with only a 32 cubic inch smaller engine.

Well our 98 yukon has the big 350 with 265 horse and like 330 Torque (again underrated). I't kinda fun to drive, specially offroad.

Wait the GMC tranny will last longer!

1992 trofeo is on a distinguished road
Default hmm

Another thing I never heard of.. 205horse 5.7L... so its 4x4/ext cab/1500...
Id be counting my spark plugs, Some of those trucks came with a 4.3L and it was rated at 205horse..
A long time ago my father had a 92 5.7 with a manual. When it didnt have power I think we had to retime the distibuter, *if you think this could be it, I think you have to disconnect somthing near the relay center...
but redlines at 4k?

There is no way it redlines @ 4k.... That'* not driveable...Ours doesn't have a redline and it goes to 5k on the tach..
