I tried looking for something close to what I was asking but I had no luck so...
What is the difference between the 04 and 05 besides the 5.7 and then 6.0
I heard the 04's had some bugs but I could be totally wrong. I just want to know if it is worth spending 3 grand more for an 05 besides the fact that it is newer and has 50 more hp. By the way what ways are there of putting the 04's 5.7 close to the out put of the 05 6.0? Anything else you feel like tellin me about mods and or pros and cons of the 04 to the 05 also tips for buying a used one would be helpful ...Thanks
- LS2 Engine versus LS1
- Larger brakes (significantly larger) with painted calipers
- Split dual exhaust (instead of both pipes exiting the driver's side)
- Hood scoops (non functional)
The LS1 5.7 engine is a very nice engine with tons of aftermarket mods. It can easily be made to make more HP than the LS2 (with money of course, and a voided warranty). I think the 2005 or 2006 would be the better bet, but the 2004 is still very nice.
I've owned my 04 since 6/04 bought it brand new. The only problems I have had were minimal. The door lock actuator needed replace on drivers side and a plastic cover on passenger side under dash came loose and was replace all under warranty.
Mine is an 04. I just feel a little more comfortable knowing that my gas pedal is actually connected to the throttle body and a software gremlin isn't going to mess with me. I'm not too sure about that fly by wire stuff.
