    Mine is awd, 2wd would be better in a performance aspect. But this is just a dd, that my wife will drive as well. The stability control, traction control and awd make it a pretty safe vehicle for a girl to drive.

    Doing a little cleaning and tinkering.


    Heres the small hole in the middle of the headlights to let in air.


    Here it is after I enlarged it a bit.


    And here is the K&N air box getting modified.

    I drilled out the 3 spot welds and removed the front shield. It still seals up to the hood nice, but now is open to the incoming cooler air.

    All back together here. Need to clean that airfilter still.

    I dont even get on it to know the difference. Next day drove to DSM for the weekend and fully loaded at about 75mph with cruise on I only averaged 17.5mpg. I drive it like an old lady, looking for toy to take my rage out on. Maybe a 240 or miata or motard.

    Vette 1-2 servo is here, need to get that put on, trans cooler, and change fluids.

    If you can find the stock air box lid for it I think you will find it works better than the K&N open one.

    Nice looking truck. Did you buy this in Chicago ?
