Aftermarket upgrades

Asked by Aug 22, 2016 at 03:49 AM about the 2016 GMC Sierra 1500 SLT Double Cab 4WD

Question type: Car Customization

I'm considering installing an aftermarket tuner, a
cold air intake, and an exhaust system in order to
improve my gas mileage. Will these upgrades
really improve my gas mileage? Could these
upgrades cause damage to the engine?

Been there and tried that, several times. The only thing those upgrades will do is make a very few extra horse power and fuel mileage will be the same, slightly less if you utilize the horse power. Save your money.

It's a brand new truck? and you think you can improve on the efforts of a team of GM engineers? Be careful- messing with the truck may void your warranty-
