Ok, here's a report on the gas mileage.
The owner is happy to report he went from averaging 10.5 Mpg
to now ~12.6 Mpg the last I heard.
A 20% increase.

That was a relief for me as I recall Ron mention 20% as being the expected minimum for the groove.

Looks good to me JV glad you ok from deer -- as for PCV re-route after working on locomotives for 30 years I see a need for crankcase vents always be in place for fresh filtered air entering crankcase -- our small gas engines need fresh filtered air going in and same inbound air steam pull air from crankcase thus burning bad vapors

oh did notice drawing tool -- green color on pictures -- Is that available somewhere?

Concerning the colors on the images, that can be done with a number of different 'Paint' programs.

All computers have a simple paint program, or you can download free ones as well that give you more artistic control, such as 'Gimp'. Gimp is a wonderful free program pretty much capable of doing things that $500+ programs can do. I use that often, But requires a rather steep learning curve.

But one can simply use what's comes with Windows.
Start--> Programs--> Accessories--> Paint

Good for you, JV! I figured it would get a good MPG report, and so it did...

Just a hunch, but based on all the success stories w/ big Ford's w/ 2-barrel TB's, and my own success on a '89 Nissan Maxima, that also had a 2-bbl TB, I am thinking that there's an inherent advantage in applying the Groove to 2-BBL type TB's

Anyone else got any thoughts about these?
