I've had really good luck with my '02 Sonoma SLS 5spd. with a 4.3l V6. It's definitely a fast little truck with only a few small/cheap parts. Cold air intake and a hypertech chip and you've got a sport truck. I love blowing away the occassional sport compacts and full- sized "accessorized" trucks! Power-to- weight ratio...you do the math (275hp+small, light truck= HOLD ON!)
Sleek, light, well geared truck (3.08 rear).
Make the stock exhaust more throaty. It's too quiet!
