IPR replacement

so i finally got around to changing my IPR today.
some symptoms ive been having are hard starts when the truck is warmed up, rough idle at a stop, and ive noticed my fuel mileage has been suffering.
it only took about 15 mins to do, and i used a mac tools 1 1/8 socket, i read around that you need a special socket but the mac deep socket worked great.
ive noticed significantly smoother take offs and more power throughout the entire power band. easier starts when truck is warm also
i also noticed atleast 3 more psi of boost, i saw an average of 27-28 psi on my 140 ext tune from php. it spiked once at 30 psi for a second or so.
i have a first gen wicked wheel also.
thought id share my good luck

I did mine a couple weekends back and also had great results. MPG's went way up, truck is smoother and quieter, more power too.

Lots of money spent at RiffRaff
Holley fuel pump, in tank mods, crappy riding leveling kit, DP-F6, 5 Gauges+Edge CS in dash, CB radio in Dash, over 100 goofy little mods
Still pretty slow, just less slow now.

my truck runs so much smoother its incredible.

i replaced my EBPV sensor too cause it was bad so i hope the combination of those gets me some better mpgs.

im getting ready to do this myself - i got the 1 1/8 socket and the IPR
anything specific about removing it? how much oil leaks out? do you worry about air in the system?

make sure the socket is deep enough.
its easy, its more pleasant to do this when the truck is cold, cause everything gets hot down there.
put some rags underneath before you pull it out.
i took the sensor out walked away grabbed the new one off the bench and put it in and not a whole lot of oil came out
as far as air goes i didn't worry about it but you could purge it if you wanted to by pulling the icp out i think.

ive already noticed better mpg and better running
