It wouldn't be any effort on my part to stop.
    for clarity - you hit "troll" when you bold faced a statement then claimed you were saving it for posterity. Suggestions are great, but you crossed the line.

      tomorrow I'll call and get them to send more parts... ah well, the IAC replacement is easy and under warranty

          • *sigh* found it, someone should mention to the warranty dept. at FiTech to plug ALL the things in. IAC was unplugged... works great now.

              • Someone once gave me grief about wheeling in my yard.... it's a good yard, and while I work on it, I keep having to remove rocks... eventually the entire island will be a rock garden with rocks I've pulled out while fixing my yard





                and the corner... I keep putting rocks there because the delivery guys just can't drive 2 extra feet before turning and it creates a huge hole at that corner... now it creates huge scratches and dents :D

                • I know the feeling! Added 6 feet to the width of my driveway so I can back trailers out. Few days after fixing it, school super's wife backed a brand new Blazer in the ditch.. I never shifted an auto transfer case before, she wanted me to unhook trailer and pull her out. Naaah. Switch in 4by and jumps out.."My husband will never know, will he?". Nope lady, unless you tell him. Garbage truck turned around in neighbor's driveway. Wider than mine, MISSED IT! Took 2 huge wreckers to pull him out... I laughed too hard!

                          • I've owned this 6 years, tomorrow. thinking its next upgrade will be diesel and (sadly) an automatic.... too many years racing and biking and my knee is saying 'enough'... it'll be a bit, but that is the next goal.... likely it will be a 6.5 turbo diesel but who knows, if a 2.8 cummins fell from the sky; I'd love that right in there too.... but at this point 7k for a 2.8 Cummins vs. maybe 4k in the Detroit diesel and there we go. (not just that but I have a 6.5 and manifolds....

                            • Are you staying clear of the smoke up there? We've been "fogged in" the last week with heavy smoke. I finally got outside all day yesterday to do a few repairs. It was still smoky, but I just couldn't stay indoors any longer!
