    Just had mine done on my Express van, has the 4.8. Was misfiring on cyls 1 2 5 6 and 8. I checked the old gaskets and didn't see anything obvious either. Van had a constant p0300 since I've had it.

    So the code cleared. And low end idle is allot smoother. After a hard acceleration to a stop. Idle would bounce a little. That seenms fixed.
    I wint jnow for sure until i send log files in.
    Side note. I like the ride with the drop springs.

    I love how it drives. I have new tires on order. Once those are on and aligned next week. Ill do my final logs and send back. I haven't since I did the intake gaskets.
    Honestly doesnt get driven much.

    So i have been dragging ass in doing much of anything, but i did do another scan the other night with the larger wheels on and with the vacuum issues resolves. I sent it in to Justin and asked what else we could safely push based on my milage. He said that he is " frankly surprised " how well it is running for the miles and that i am pretty much at my limit for the miles it has on it. So all in all a good day. I will upload the new tune to account for the wheels and call it good until i get the bug to push further into internal mods.
    I would love to gain some low end power some day. But for now i am astonished how hard it pulls from about 3000 rpm up.

    - i did however put in the magnaflow muffler that has been taking up space in my kitchen
