No doubt, I ready to mount front set #4 before winter on my GXP w/45,000 miles. I dont know why I cant keep a decent set of shoes on her. It must be an engineering anomoly. Ya, thats what I'll tell the wife........

From time to time, it'* age and a converter lock quirk makes me a little hesitant these days. I dont want to take it in to Mr. Goodwrench untill it fails or nears the end of my extended warranty. Besides, I have to get it all out and plug the hole to take her in. I figure a new tranny, one more new IM shaft, and whatever else pops up in the next 3 years or 25,000 miles will help soften the $1600 I shelled out for the GMPP when it was new.

That'* the cost for just the SC..no harness, no PCM, no belts, no intake, no gaskets, no etc.

The MP112 is also for the 4.6 to 6.5 liter ported injection engines. It wont work on the 3800.
