2013 vs 2014 v6, .5 seconds?
 
On chevy.com they say the 2013 does 0-60 in 6.4. The 2014 is rated at 5.9. Is that not all its cracked up to be or would it be awsome to have the new setup?

:sad0147: Feeling depressed.

How can I make my 2013 6.0 flat? Looking at injen cai but that may not get me quite there...

D cai's hinder power for short cold drives, say back and forth to work in the winter?

Are you sure you aren't looking at the 2013 2LS 0-60? Fairly certain that the 1/2LT is still 5.9. The 2LS is 6.4 because of it's 2.92 gears, where as the LT cars are 5.9 because of the 3.27 gears. Pretty sure nothing has changed, you should be good to go as long as you don't have a 2LS

Have to agree with RacnJsn.

No way the 0 - 60 time has increased in the 2014 models versus the 2013 or prior models.

Look on page 15 of the 2014 brochure:

2LS: 0-60 6.4 seconds
1LS & LT's: 0-60 5.9 seconds

No change from previous years.

That sheds light on it
 
Thanks for the post. So youre saying my 2013 lt will always show what gear its in if i have it in M? When i used tapshift before it wasnt but i guess it was in drive then...

Yea it will appear on the DIC in the lower right hand corner

It shows in your DIC/HUD if you use the paddles. Just moving the shifter to M puts it in Sport Mode (S in the DIC/HUD) until you touch a paddle.

Using the paddles will show the gear no matter if in D or M, but if in D it goes back to showing D after a few seconds (10 maybe?), whereas if in M it will continue to show the gear after you use the paddles once.

Not cool I have a 2ls how can I make it to 6 flat or lower?? Can I change the gears or the whole setup to the ss setup and how much it would it be? anyone have an idea.

You can switch over to 3.55 gears or yes you can get the SS setup. The SS setup will set you back at least 1000 dollars if you can do the work yourself. If you have to pay labor you're going to be looking in the 1500 dollar range.

And supposedly the 3.55 gears will not fit the 2.92 2LS carrier, so even if you went that route, you would have to either just buy a 3.27 carrier from an LT trim car, or the whole A6 LT rear w/ the 3.27's and then swap in the 3.55s...

Either way, you go, you're probably only saving a couple hundred bucks IF any savings at all by swapping to 3.55's vs swapping in a whole SS rear end.

That's true, forgot about that. Yea, then you might be better off going with the v8 stuff if you really want to go that route

i have a 2 LT. i earlier wondered why it was rated at 28 i hwy but LS was 30. i guess becuase of marketing reasons, too. you gotta read the fine print. i finally noticed that the gears are different in the 2LS verses the LT, same engine, but the 2.92 gears thus higher mileage over the 3.27 gears, which i think the auto SS is too.
