Well I don't know if they salt the roads in Wa. But they load em up here in STL. Look like my caliper is stuck. I should be able to loosen it up and lube it up real good. Is it just the rears on your car ?

Sorry I was thinking about the pins on the rears.. I do think the fronts slide back and forth also ? If so they should be kept lubed so they do not get stuck...Its late and I cant picture them LOL

They are studying datalogs and improving the tune a bit at a time until they get it where they wanted. They watch reactions to fine tune.

Rocco is that BOV too close to the maf? Is it able to read good?

No , we had a start up tune . And a couple of cruise tunes.
Nothing to exiting to write about. Now that the engine is broken in. We are gonna hit it.
