2019 GMC Sierra Borla ProXS Muffler

The 2019-2022+ GMC Sierra and Chevrolet Silverado 6.2L trucks are nearly silent. This is thanks to dual valves that block up way too much of the exhaust in an effort to muffle the V8 roar. I'm going to fix that with a Borla ProXS 40359 muffler. I'll cut off these ridiculous flapper valves (adaptive valves) and make it sound like a nice V8 again! Who wants a V8 with no rumble? Not me! Any reputable muffler shop should be able to help with this fix if you can't DIY it.


GMC Sierra Scratched Tail Light Fix!

A few weekends ago I scratched up my truck's tail light hauling tree branches. Today I show you how to fix scratches and scuffs on tail lights with minimal effort. A scuffed brake light is a lot easier to restore than foggy headlights due to the robust plastic that isn't scared of UV. With the right tools it's truly one of simplest DIY jobs for a detailing enthusiast!

2019 GMC Denali Oil Change (6.2L V8)

Today I'll show you how to change out the oil on my daily driven 2019 GMC Sierra Denali Ultimate. This truck has the 6.2L V8 L87 engine. The process should be identical on the Silverado and other same generation trucks with this engine. Of course you should check out your service manual to make sure that is correct. You don't even really need to lift the truck if you can just fit under it.


2017-2019 Audi A4 Oil Change (B9)

My 2017 Audi A4 has probably the easiest oil change procedure in the world. It is completely dummy proof and virtually mess free. Anyone can change the oil on their 2017-2019 B9. I used the Mityvac 7201 pump to pull the oil out of this 2.0L TFSI engine.


2019 Denali Ultimate CQuartz UK 3.0

I purchased a brand new 2019 GMC Denali Ultimate and it's time to paint correct it and put on some ceramic protection! I also used CarPro Iron X to decontaminate it and topped the whole thing off with CarPro Reload. I'm loving the new truck so far and it's a huge upgrade form the F250 that had constant issues. The 6.0 did turn out to be a "power joke", lets hope the Denali proves to be a stable beast!


2007 F250 New Wheels, Speedo Correction & Seat Belt Chime Defeat

The old power joke is now officially known as "King Tut" and today it got a set of new shoes. I stopped by the shop and picked up a set of 2019 F250 wheels with Michelin AT/2 tires. This means they're now 1" over the original size and I need to re-write the "As-Built" data. I'm going to use Ford IDS dealer software to perform the reprogramming work to correct the speedometer.


6.0L Power Stroke Injector Replacement

The problems experienced by my 6.0L Power Joke super duty have escalated and it's time to perform the needed repairs. Before we get started we'll also check out Adam's Polishes Mystery Box and see what kind of goodies I got inside. Then back to the truck I diagnosed a bad #1 cylinder HEUI injector. I'll tear the valve cover off and the oil rail. You'll be able to see what it's like to service this six liter rube goldberg contraption.


Power Stroke or Power Joke? Injector Issues & Testing

I've been having an issue with what I suspect is a sticking injector in my PowerJoke 6.0L turbo diesel V8. This is the engine the 2007 F250 SD. It's giving me a rough idle while warming up. Seems fine while driving, but throws a P0263 Cylinder 1 Injector Circuit Contribution / Balance fault. There is no CEL but the code is there and pending.


2007 F250 Speaker Upgrade

The speakers that came with my aging 2007 F250 were terrible. They just felt like absolute trash with the worst sound quality I've had in a car in years. I decided to get some new Pioneers and mate them up to my head unit. This guide should work for 2003 to 2007 F250 Crew Cab trucks, mine is a 6.0L turbo diesel.
