    P107 code

    P107 code

    Had the Lil red straw n sprayed Lil bursts around upper/lower intake gasket. Yeah sorry was running. Idle never changed. Somethin went PUFF under the box n couldn't replicate it. Slightly warmed. Man n I'm the one usually jumping people for not givin details. Oh and no flame. Almost like it...

    P107 code

    After swapping out faulty #5 injector I'm finally runnin on 8 cylinders again. But now I'm getting map sensor low voltage code.

    Best lowering option

    I did coils up front n hangers/shackles out back. Came out to 3 4 drop cuz I didn't use the rubber spacers that came with springs. It settled a Lil so looks better especially in the rear. Rides pretty good n handles good too. I had to go with 20s though cuz I've been after the look for years...

    Stock Ubolt Replacement

    I lucked out. Went to local semi brake/hydraulic hose shop. Told dude what I needed n he said "oh chevy half ton?" 10 min later had a full set of square u bolts for less than I could have ordered em for. All he needed was length incase I was liftin or lowering. Think was $31 bucks after tax.
