Yes, that is the #1 Mod, +10 bhp. I tightened up all my coolant hoses. They must have contracted a bit with the cold weather. I'm just glad it's not peeing coolant and leaving it's mark everywhere I park now!

TigWizard Sprayed my diamond plate rocker covers with bed liner. Treated the rocker rust with por-15, and made temporary patches to cover the damage until spring, when I can do a proper repair.

My 4 banger sits well below the optimal engine temp to long to get the cab heat going well, cardboard speeds it up. The radiator that's in mine is way to big for that engine.

That'd be a lot of vacuuming!....haha

Cricketboy Replaced the rear output shaft seal on the t-case, topped off the lost fluid, tightened a loose exhaust bolt, and did an engine oil/filter change.

It was spewing ATF all over the underside and on the muffler, nothing like the smell of burning ATF to get your attention!

Alright thanks man I don't have any friends who weld that live within an hours drive so I'll probably be having a shop do it
