    That's a great tip as long as the throttle still closes all the way when you let off the pedal. I've never looked at my Suburban, but I've always verified on my carbed vehicles that the pedal opens the throttle plates all the way.

    Ford Exploder, sry couldn't resist. Well, I think maybe that 50hp is a little over the top estimate.

    But good find I guess. Sucks when your cars are engineered so poorly that you have to resort to things like this just to get it operating to your liking.
