I have to drive it a few days first for the ecm to adjust for any change in quality of fuel. I will post my results.
    awesome, i will follow your update, as it just seems like such an easy accessory to install, that isnt too expensive, that even 1 mpg, or like you say smoother idling, or anything beneficial out of it would seem justified for the cost

    I have been pulling all of my front end appart. lately for the past couple weeks anyway. havent got no pics yet but i will get some up. also the reason why my front end is tron apart is because i am putting new cv shafts in, ball joints. and well i guess pretty much the whole front end.
