Back to stock

Just put my truck back to stock so I could put it in the shop for some warranty work. Left the S&B intake on since it is more of a pain then the exhaust to change. Let me tell you it sucks. Saw my milage on the lie-o-meter go instantly from 16.4 to 12.4 in just driving round trip to work which is a total of 20 miles, not to mention I had forgot what differance the spartan and DPF delete makes. I actually notice myself pushing on the petal now. I wont be able to get this in and out of the shop fast enough. I will never doubt the benefit of a spartan tuner.

Minor stuff I hope. Oil leak or more like drip, door ajar message wont go off, and blue oval sticker on one of the caps for the lug nuts came off. Figured I would try to get all of this done at one time. The oil leak I am hoping does not turn out to be a long drawn out problem. They can sometimes be a pain to trace down to the source. Would like to complain about the leather seats showing a little more wear than I think they should, but doubt I doubt it would do any good.

Watch the o-ring on the crankshaft sensor... They replaced mine twice before I recommended that maybe they spend 2 minutes checking the threads. Sure enough they found a bur and #3 hasn't leaked in over a year.

Thanks I will make sure they check that. This leak that I have runs down to the external transmission filter and accumulates there and then starts dripping dime size drops all over my drive way. I could play connect the dots on my drive way.

Let us know if they say anything about the S&B. I'll have to bring mine in for a pop in the front suspension (at 2K miles... come on now). What you said about the S&B being harder than the exhaust is seconded here!

Well, listening to all of this pretty much makes up my mind on the S&B vs. AFE question I've been pondering.

Hearing repeatedly (not just in this thread) how difficult the S&B install is has about made up my mind to go AFE.
