    Thanks @Opiewho I just hope it didn't hurt the truck. Very rare for a modern vehicle to back fire randomly.

    Update on my truck: while starting it today it sounded very rough and the idle was weird, it went away in eventually but it was weird. Even the exhaust was shaking from it it sounded like every once in a while it would surge then return to norm. Also smelled like unburnt gas.

    Finally installed my Volant Ram Air Scoop! Ended up removing the lower few inches off the air dam to get it to fit proper, but it all turned out quite well! Need to put about 100 more miles on the truck and then see if I'll need to retune the truck.

    Today I:
    • Removed my AVS Aeroskin hood protector (bug guard), removed the OEM double-sided tape from it, cleaned and degreased the hood and both sides of the hood protector, added 3M heavy duty double-sided tape, and replaced the hood protector on the hood
    • Installed a custom-fabricated coalescing filter bracket
    • Shortened the hose from the coolant reservoir to the radiator so that it doesn't contact the coalescing filter or the filter's bracket
    • Evacuated the AC system
    • Removed the flange nuts that hold the accumulator in place
    • Replaced said flange nuts with lock washers and custom-fabricated aluminum posts
    • Bolted the front air manifold mounting plate to the custom aluminum posts


    @Conlan Rose, here are some pics of the front air manifold bracket, as I know you were interested. (I'll get pics of the coalescing filter bracket, the coalescing filter, and the front air manifold when I'm ready to mount and plumb them all.)

    Here are the custom-frabricated posts for the bracket:

    I was too tired and cold to recharge the AC system, so it waits until later this week...

    Installed a new passenger side window crank handle to replace the broken one! Yes...my truck has crank up windows.

    Attempted to refill my AC system but the high side schrader valve stuck open and absolutely would not jiggle shut. I spoke to a stealership, as the high side port did not appear serviceable. An OEM replacement is 81 bucks and is in stock, locally ... and requires replacement of the entire line from the condensor to the connection near the low side. (This also means grille removal and the like to replace the line.)

    The worst part about the situation is there's a TSB out for this .. and the replacement part STILL DOES NOT have a serviceable valve. WTF? If you know there's a problem then design a part that fixes it ... or design serviceability into the replacement solution.

    Sometimes GM makes me mad...
