New intake, new exhaust and an auto program tuner that you plug in and set to 6 different levels of performance. It gives diagnostic readings for fault codes etc. You set it to stock when going into a dealer and nothing shows on their computer. I have had the hardwired performance tuners on other trucks that would void the warrenty at twice the cost of installation
I am very happy with it and the performance gain was awsome. I will let you know how the fuel economy is once I have run it for abwhile

Hi Shane...


I drive it everyday and it was easy to get used to..Steve's driven it a few times on the weekend. I love it we love it!! I have to say the ford had more power at take off but that really doesn't bother me. It's comfortable to drive it's more like your driving a luxury car instead of a beast of a truck. I've got a big 300 miles on it but Steve will be taking it to pick up the RV in Indiana soon so he'll get to see how it handles then. He will not be stopping anywhere along the way :O)
I do miss my Ford and I have to admit it actually had a few other extras in it than the Denali has but not to much of a big deal. I forget all that when once again I have a heated steering wheel here in Ct it gets cold!!!

Isn't it funny when you get options that you think you don't really need. Then once you get used to them, you can't do without them! They go from nice to have, to have to have. : )

I really enjoyed my extra power when I was in traffic. There were times where I had to change lanes or get out of a tight spot and the "Beast" did it well. Ginny had a tendency of holding her breath and closing her eyes though.

In SoCal, the feature we like the best is the air conditioned front seats in our new Denali.

Nice Truck Char & Steve. You'll like the Duramax & Allison trans.
Wait until you get some miles on it. The performance will get even better.


Check your owners manual. Mine said not to tow within the first 500 miles. Can't wait to see it in person at the 2016 Rally.

That not towing for 500 miles is to wear in the differential gears.

And it is good advice!

I bought a new chev in 92 and hooked up my TT and headed to Nebraska. Before I got to Cheyenne someone flagged me down as it was smoking out the back. All of the differential oil boiled out the vent onto the exhaust and it trashed the pinion bearing and consequentially the ring and pinion. When they popped the cap in the shop in Cheyenne they evacuated most of the Dealership as it stunk so bad.

Fortunately on this last Ford, it was 500 miles just getting it home from the Dealership.

Hi Rob....Once Redwood calls and it can be picked up and home safe....we'll get a new signature Getting anxious for it to be back home. Just not wanting him to go through that long trip there and back.

Not sure why hotels are so vulnerable, but they sure are. My buddies whole truck was stolen from the hotel, found the next day burned.

Sounds good Char, I am also want to hear what Redwood did to correct your A/C issues when you get it back.

Before you leave the factory check the height of the ride. When I got my Denali the fifth wheel rode nose high. Had to adjust my hitch all the way down.
