That 6.2 is an awesome power plant 404HP straight out of the box, and 16.4 mpg. Love my 2010 Silverado, the exhaust note is sooo sweet. :wink:

While its in there, you really should go for the supercharger pkg. Its only $17,000 or so more...Ed

It all happened so fast, lol.

I wanted a truck to replace my 07 3/4 Suburban

I started to fantasize about adding a super charger like I talked about I would do on this once the factory bumper to bumper expired but I never did.

Then I found out that Callaway and GM entered in to this deal less than a year ago.

Then I found out that the frame and the transmission on the 1500 is the same as the 2500 and the only way to get a 6.2 in a Suburban type vehicle is to get the Denali. The 3/4 ton comes with the 6.0 because of the stronger work cycle.

So, figuring, I was paying for HP, I found a WHITE 2012 Denali XL in CT not far from Lyme where Callaway.

Deal was done on Friday and the car was delivered today. Tomorrow I'll know what day I need to be in CT. to get a tour, pick up my vehicle and drive it back to the Hoosier.

This thing is gonna be sooooo funny to go beat up tuners and "sport" cars with. haha

Oh yeah, it'll get better mileage when towing because it won't be going in and out of gear. At least that's how I justified the purchase. :kingme:

I'll get pics once I pick her up, I'm just having a hard time waiting.

what supercharger do they use?

I got a new '93 Burb 454 3/4 in late '92 right after Hurricane Andrew.... first thing I did within a month was wheels, a Whipple, headers, and exhaust,,,, man, that thing pulled like the Budweiser Clyde's...

I got my truck yesterday. Oh my, is this thing badass! I showed up at the dealers with my temp plate, insurance paperwork and a Valentine radar detector, lol.
