Looks like they are interchangeable terms, also looks like you must have the vehicle in park/neutral. That's not good because my ECU thinks the truck is always in 3rd gear lol.

Got the steering wheel button harness installed and now my DIC works! ;)

A good tech tip for getting the steering wheel buttons out is to take a pencil with an eraser and use the eraser end to push the button out from the backside, obviously not pushing on the portion of the button with the pins for the connector. In all the videos I watched people were prying them out from the front which puts a lot of unnecessary strain on the pretty face of the wheel.

Removed and replaced the pump/bucket with a Delphi unit but I dint think it solved the problem, I’m getting the same fuel pressure readings of 50psi when primed then dropping to 40psi. I’ll know more when it sits a bit and then I try to start it again.

Got the airbag back in and wow these LEDs are bright, maybe a little too bright tbh, the steering wheel buttons are so bright it’s like I’m whirling a glow stick when doing tight maneuvers, I’ll probably run with the dimmer at half to avoid going blind. Seriously they look great but are a tad bright for me.

Super pumped on the DIC working! Never realized I’d have the MPG monitors, range, and other features like owning something not old lol.

Pulled the intake to inspect stuff and noticed what seems to be excessive oil around the intake ports and valley. Going to order a new valley gasket along with intake gaskets and install new injector Orings while I’m there. Contemplating running a second $20 catch can in line with the current $20 catch can to reduce the oil going into the intake because I can see the line going to the intake from the catch can is wet and oily inside.

Pulled the plugs as well and they all look good except #6 was kinda oily around the threads and all of the gaps had opened significantly to around .060 or more which could have significant effects on startup! I typically have them at .044ish, so I closed them back down.

Lastly my dumbass bumped the heater connector at the firewall and of course it broke so I gotta find the best solution for that. I would love a metal T with hose clamps if anyone has a link to something.

Just put an OEM T on there and you’ll be good for another 150k. That one looks original.

Is this Dorman replacement considered OEM or should I get the clear/white colored replacement?

Also ordered one of these other cheap cans to run in-line and possibly run as vent to atmosphere.

No do NOT buy a Dorman. Replace both of them also. GM Genuine 15055342 and 15055343 , one is black and one is white. The angle on them is slightly different from each other.
