Couldnt one change the intake? Also always could get a Qjet heater lol im joking
For me this is my hang up. I'm in western Wa. but the farm does have some elevation so there are penalty of winter mornings that start out in the upper 20's, we typically see a few upper teen nights. That's about it I can count on one hand the number of times in my life we have gotten into single digits.I agree with this. When people talk about "cold weather driveability" I don't apply it to any operation here in the willamette valley. We don't really even get truly below freezing for any amount of time. It will have a tougher time starting up and warming in cold weather.... but for it to be a real problem it will need to be MUCH colder than we usually get around here. If you are getting feet of snow and it is staying near zero temps... you're going to have a bad time with no heat crossover.
I can live with some issues on the colder mornings if I had too. I'd run a thermac which might help.
But what happens when I need to make a run over the pass in the winter, I'm either going to be coming back loaded or towing my trailer. The last thing I want to do is to be up on the pass or on the east side with the trailer in bad weather and the truck won't run right. If I had a good used Vortec fall into my lap, would I install it, you bet. Roller cam is very appealing though. As would the power increase. If I knew someone with a carbed vortec and could drive it around for a bit that might help too.
No LS for me. Not my thing. I work on those at the shop and have zero interest in owning one.
