      Tricking the OBD2 test is alot easier than getting a canned MAF tune to run well.


      Delete checks for emission related codes, set readiness at key on, and wire power ground and k-line. Done.

      Looks like the Coolant bubble is mounted low enough that you are getting an air pocket trapped in the rear line to the head.

      That is the worst logic/advice I have heard on here in a while.

      If you think you should change your oil viscosity based on season, you are not in the position to be giving advice on the subject.

      Non LoBro inner joints are worthless. There is a very good reason you can buy 2 brand new junk axles for the cost of 1 inner LoBro joint.

      The only reason to go with 262's is if 268's are out of your budget. You NEED to replace valve springs with 268's as they reach bind.

      If you think you can feel the difference, you are recieving a placebo effect. There is more of a difference if there is a 25 degree temp differential run to run.
