Got my 56mm Impala tb Tuesday, and I'm gonna put it on tomorrow. ll check to see if it made any difference performance wise. I've heard that it will make a difference, and I heard it won't. I guess I'll find out soon enough.

I got it on today after. I couldn't get any results with Torque. It was raining heavy, so I couldn't get traction. It does feel a little perkier though, especially at highway speeds. Hopefully I can get a run tomorrow so I can see what kind of difference there is.


Your GP sounds great!

Changed plugs, wires, rad hoses and belts. Had Belle Tire fix a slow leak in the right rear tire (nail). Finally fixed my ABS system. I was getting an error code for open or short circuit to the right front wheel speed sensor that a new hub did not correct. Used an ohm meter and a long piece of wire to check for continuity from the WWS connector to the EBCM connector and read open circuit on both wires. I spliced and soldered two wires into the wires at the EBCM connector, routed them over the engine, and spliced and soldered them into the wires at the WSS connector. Cleared codes, started the car and the problem was fixed. No more "check gages" in the HUD, lit brake and ABS lights, "service stability sytem" in the DIC and I can turn TC on and off again. I have no idea where the break is, but running the redundant wires fixed the problem.

By the way, the only difficult part about pulling the back plugs was getting the wires off. I place a folded over heavy blanket over the engine and lay on top to get at the back plugs. Put some good light back there are it'* pretty easy to get at the plugs.

Lesson learned. When you are changing plugs after 80,000 or 90,000 miles, assume some of the wire end connectors are going to break off and stay on the plugs, and buy a new wire set before you start, not after you get started like I did.
