Mechanic thought so. I was on the fence with the smoke machine. But he seemed sure. So I did them. Should be able to tell tonight if the bank 1&2 codes are gone. In addition ill re scan and send logs .Its too icy tonight for hot laps.
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.

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
