    Thumbs up

    When I took our 1990 GMC Suburban(329,000 miles) in last time, the tech said that it looked as though it was going to fail, but when he revved it up a bit, it passed. He told me that the blended gasoline with ethanol made a big difference with these engines, (5.7L) and suggested that before I bring it in to get inspected the next time, that I run at least one tank full of pure gasoline, not that blended ethanol stuff.

    Whooee! Ran it through the Cajon Pass HP test and it ran great. Before the cat back / magnaflow I could not use the cruise control to climb the 4% grade. It would start to slow, then the cruise would drop out. This time I set the cruise for 70mph and rode it all the way to the top without missing a beat.
