Here it is...4 hours of cutting grinding polishing along with some nail biting (cutting the plastic support from the sensors). Honestly, The truck has a ton more snap off the line. After hooking battery back up, it seemed like good old OBDII was real confused. Surging idle, longer initial startup. As soon as she went into closed loop she smoothed right out and started like day one. Not bad for 4 hours and 12 bucks in materials. Also relocated ATS to the airbox in hopes of getting cooler temp readings. Let me know what you think

It looks good, but dude your warranty just got f*ucked! They won't cover any drive line warranty!

But If you already know that, good job! That does look good.

That took you 4 hours!?!?!?!?!?!

HAHA mine took 30 minutes with the right tools!

A die-grinder is the best tool for the job... cutting, grinding, polishing.... you name it and this tool can do it with certain bits you put on.

Granted they are up ther in price, but they work wonders on everything you use it for, and cuts time in half..... or in my case in 1/8ths.

muahaha

Just playin, nice job!!

Real nice job:thumbup: Now if the computer will only compensate
for the extra air flow and add the fuel, you should see a nice gain
but the true test is your 1/4 mile times. You should always do a
before and after to see if your mods work.

Worth an average of about 5.8 horsepower from 3250 to about 5100 RPM on an average of two runs on a DYnojet. Curve is noticeably fatter above 4000 now. Better than 300 bucks for the gran unit.

Now wrap your hose from the air box to the throttle in a heat
resistance covering. It will drop you inlet air temp about 50 deg
or what ever the air temp outside is if you have some sort of cold air kit.

When I was done I disco'd both battery cables for a half hour. Restarted the truck. It took a good 20 - 25 miles of driving for idle to smooth out. made a couple of full throttle run ups to so the comp could get a hold of things. so far so good. MPG went up about 2 MPG since than.

How much difference do you guys think there is between actually "porting and polishing" the MAF and just popping the screen out. I've already popped my screen out and I could feel a difference, but I don't want to go to all that trouble if I won't notice the power increase.
