    I did a job today. It was an 07 Yukon with only 112,000(no pics:oops:). Steering wheel needed some color.
    Before.. 20201121_154905.jpg
    After.. 20201121_172116.jpg
    This is what the color should be--Titanium Gray. It took me forever to tape up the steering wheel. I tried taking out the airbag so I could take off the inserts instead of taping everything. I tried 45 mins! Said F**'it.

    Thank you guys, I appreciate the kudos.
    Mark--I buy my supplies from the school I trained at in Michigan. I know they buy it from different sources and put their own label on it, but I don't know who made it originally. It is water based and I apply it with a mini spray gun--what you would use to paint a car. Once I spray it I have to use a clear gloss coat which will seal it. 20201122_014333.jpg
    Overpriced at $9.95 for 4 ozs tho. 20201122_013801.jpg
    School I went to.

    FF injectors are 33lb.. 5.3 and 6.0 share the same 28lb injectors. The difference in the lq4 and lq9 is the lq9 has higher compression.. i wouldn't risk the stock injectors with a cammed 6.0. I would stay in under 80% DC is possible.

    Thanks so much for the details! Looks like the 8.1 injectors are quite handy..!

    I think I'd get a set of FF injectors. Does anyone know how to tell them apart from a non FF injector?

    You are 100% right I totally forgot I had to turn in my Gen 1 so they could program the new one to have licenses for everything I've tuned with it. :beer:
