This pristine 2009 AWD TBSS visited from Massachusetts for an installation of a Magnacharger TVS 1900, PCM of NC Stealth Cam (also our Brian Tooley Deluxe Cam Kit and Melling 10296 oil pump), Kooks Headers, Pickup Tube Relocation Kit, our Spal Fan kit, RPM Transmissions Level 5 Transmission, and lots of other goodies as well! Turned out to be one incredible sleeper! No dyno results as it was AWD but the seat of the pants difference was night and day.
This very clean TBSS might look familiar (previous post HERE), it’s visited before for a 402 shortblock from TSP, along with our custom cam to go with the TVS 1900 he already had. This go round, he wanted to install a set of LS3 heads, so we set to work swapping the lower half of the supercharger tub to fit correctly. At the same time his transmission was waving the white flag, so that was remedied by a freshly built Level 6 from RPM Transmissions. We also added in an FSR radiator with our fan setup for additional cooling. A set of 8 rib Innovators West, Inc. pulleys went on to nip any potential belt slip in the bud. AWD means no dyno numbers, but it was quite an animal on the street!
This sleek 2007 TBSS was ready to replace his tired rob-cammed LS2 with something new…so we went with a built 402ci shortblock from Texas Speed and Performance, LTD. We topped it off with a 232cc port & polish job through Advanced Induction – Cylinder Head Development on his 243 heads, and used our HellCat cam to tie it all together. Final results were 102rwhp & 72 ft/lbs gain over his previous set up, ending up at 490rwhp & 454 ft/lbs tq!
We also utilized our Brian Tooley Deluxe Cam Kit, along with a Melling 10296 oil pump and a COMP Trunion Upgrade. The fuel system was updated with 33# FAST injectors to cover the extra power. Our one piece fenderwell intake really topped off the project and made sure it was breathing as best as possible!
“I’ve gotten several compliments on the engine and the NASCAR sound it has. Great job by you guys. I am really happy on how it turned out!”
This 2008 TBSS definitely wins the long-haul award, coming to visit all the way from Massachusetts! This customer enlisted our help to install a Magnacharger TVS 1900 along with a few other bolt ons such as our 3 Relay Spal Fan Kit, and our Oil Pickup Tube Kit as well. The truck turned out excellent and felt very punchy and responsive on the street. The Magnacharger, being a roots-type blower, is a great modification for a heavy truck like a TBSS. They are incredibly torquey down low and really wake up the truck!
This slick black 2007 AWD TBSS made the long haul to come visit us from Alabama! This build included our Rob Style Cam, Brian Tooley Deluxe Cam Install Kit, and a Melling 10296 Oil Pump for starters. We also installed a set of Kooks Headers for better breathing, and our Oil Pickup Tube kit to eliminate the oil slosh issue. To make sure the build stays together for years to come, we also installed an RPM Level 5 Transmission. Being an AWD model, we just street tuned it, but the difference in sound and power was quite noticeable! The Rob Style cam is perfect for those looking for extra power without sounding too rowdy or losing any driveability.
“Hey just want to drop you a quick message to thank you and Alvin again for mods on my TBSS. It turned out exactly how I wanted it and it’s so much more fun to drive. “
We were excited to put together another great TBSS package for this 2008. We ground a custom cam to the tune of 234/242 and paired it with a set of Advanced Induction 232cc ported and polished heads. We also topped it off with a FAST 102 intake along with our One Piece Fenderwell Intake and a set of 33# FAST Injectors. It already head headers and a larger torque converter installed, so we added our Brake Duct Transmission Cooler Kit to help keep the temps under wrap. This truck put down some serious power, weighing in at 475 rwhp & 413 ft/lbs tq!
This 2006 Trailblazer SS already had our Attitude V3 cam, along with a set of headers and our Brian Tooley Deluxe Cam Install Kit. He decided to step it up a notch with a 232cc port and polish job through Advanced Induction, along with a few bolt ons like our One Piece Fenderwell Intake and our three relay SPAL fan kit. After installation and tuning, the truck put down 449rwhp and drove excellent!
After having a catastrophic stock engine failure that required a complete rebuild of the bottom end, this customer decided to go with a Texas Speed 364ci shortblock. The build stayed mild as we reused the stock heads and cam, but we did also add a few bolt on upgrades along the way – such as our DIY Intake, LS1 Fan Kit, and our Transmission Cooler Kit. Internally, we also added our Oil Pickup Tube Kit and a Melling 10295 to make sure it would last a long time. These few mods coupled with tuning made a noticeable difference in the way the truck responded!
This 2007 TBSS was interested in picking up some power, along with fortifying the truck for future modifications. To insure there would never be any transmission problems no matter what he decides to throw at it, we went with an RPM Level 10 transmission build. We also installed our Oil Pickup Tube Kit, Kooks Headers, our Spal Fan Kit, One Piece Fenderwell Intake, and a few other goodies to round out the build!
This ’08 TBSS came back for a Rob Cam install (with our Brian Tooley Deluxe Cam Kit), along with a oil pickup tube kit! We had previously installed a set of Kooks headers and y pipe, just doing a street tune the first time around. This truck picked up 59 rwhp & 47 ft/lbs tq from it’s initial tune a year ago (with just a cold air intake) until now, with the cam and headers. Unfortunately the custom catback is on the small side, which we think is holding back it’s full potential as a cammed set up. However, 380 rwhp & 383 ft/bs tq still moves out pretty well!
