Upgrading the sinwgon

Like the title says FINALLY getting to start my upgrades and building upon the SINWGON! 😀My official upgrade/build thread;🤔! Any and all input welcome and appreciated. Some of you know a little bit already about what I went through just to drive the truck and get it compliant to my area. Had a heck of a time with transmission,clutch and emission bs when I bought her in 2016 with 124k miles, partially deleted had to return to stock and deal with alot of issues related to no real maintenance, brakes, filters,fluids, lots of front end work..... Now she is paid for(2 years early) registered in a emission free county 😉,and I have boxes of parts anxiously waiting to be installed 😁. Front bumper is on its way(I am hopeful to do all the front work at once while the bumper is off) Anyway I got the diamond eye 4" tbe on over the weekend along with the mini max that came with the truck."Holy cow what a difference" I have it on tow now, but anyone with minimax experience please share your thoughts.

Buy the transmission unlock code. One of my biggest regrets and probably lost 50K miles off the transmission life. I still got over 200K out of it. Even on tow setting you can make it slip from 4-6 gears. Back out of throttle or you are taking life off of it fast.

Believe me I am well aware of transmission woes, I bought a truck that was severely abused. Did not own it two weeks and was in almost 10k in a rebuilt trans and new clutch(bell housing and adapter plate broken in half)
