    You don't need to go crazy. Do what I and St. Germain? did. Install the URD cat delete y pipe and after market exhaust of your choice,you will notice a loss of low end torque/power but top end will improve significantly. I installed a 2 1/2" x 18" spiral louvered glasspack in front of my muffler to restore a little back pressure to deal with the low end torque/power loss and drone. I am quite happy with my system now with the added performance and no pesky check engine light ;)

    This accumulator delete. Is it really that big a difference? I bought the steel line and adaptor so doing it the easy way. With the bleeding, does gravity bleeding work well and any advice? My clutch drives me insane some days. Insanely temperamental

    There is a noticeable difference. Mostly in the consistency of engage and disengage. I hear you can adjust the pedal to change the points where they occur but I never made an attempt. Also, if you ever find the need to intentionally slip the clutch, it is easier to do because now, the clutch plate position is directly proportional to the pedal position, all the time.

    I can not speak to the gravity bleed. I had a helper pump the pedal. The pedal did stay down a few times and had to be pulled back up.

    I might take you up on that, I live in Barrie. Any issues with your install, thinking hard about doing this tune. Overall I really love my truck, but it does have some quirky driveability issues!

    I'm not sure what the intent was behind the damned thing, but I can't see how removing it would hurt anything (unless the nut behind the wheel is constantly dumping the pedal). Anyway, number 2 mod on my list behind OVtune.

    Before I revive this horse, I do want to say the truck is massively improved prior to OVT. That said, I'm still getting worse mpg than no tune, and no, it's not a change in driving habits. I've tried multiple tanks on 87 base and 91 base (I can't track down any 93 in these parts), but my mpg is still not the 21+ it used to be. Same routes to work, etc., but I'm still waiting for the improvement in mpg so many others have reported. Is anyone else experiencing or has experienced this?

    Again, I wouldn't hesitate to OVTune again. If I total my truck tonight and get a new one, I'd tune that fucker in the parking lot of the dealership. OVTune guy, my admiration and love for you know no limits. Just saying. Think about it. In the dark.
