I finally got someone to try out what I know to be the greatest upgrade anyone can do to their ride. The Groove will be going on to this navigator tomorrow, as I get closer to the (6) vehicles Ron spoke about in training to get others talking.
Will be doing research on the MAF and ITS upgrades to see if I can do them at the same time. This vehicle is driven 70 miles one way to work 3 times a week, so mileage is very important when you're filling a 35 gallon tank once a week.
Comments and suggestions are welcomed, i'll be posting pictures and maybe a video if I can get the vehicle owner to go along with it tomorrow evening. Most importantly though I believe this vehicle will do well with the groove and get the vehicle owner talking to everyone else they know about it.
Groove went well, tough little throttle body though and I spent a lot of time making sure the bit was nice and cool.
Will upload pictures as soon as I can, was a bit of a crazy day with me getting my truck towed back home on the way to the vehicles home. Luckily it was only a 20 mile tow back to the house. Looks like a fuel pump is in my future.
Hey Ken, sorry 'bout yer fuel pump, hope the Groove job went well. Murphy sure likes to toss in his monkey wrench at the worst time...I've thought about doing the Groove as a mobile gig, having all my tools and other stuff at hand here is like a security blanket I have trouble letting go of...

Vehicle owner called me tonight and stated that he is seeing a 10%-15% improvement in fuel mileage on the hwy. So put this one down for a success, if I can convince him to replace the o2 sensors maybe he can get a little more out of this 5.4 with 227k miles on it.
As to murphy getting the best of me Tracy, i'm not letting him bother me. At least I wasn't 50 miles from home, and the mobile rig is something i've been messing around with for a few months. Need to get my truck running so i can start doing this for other people once I get my first 6 grooves out of the way.
