At this point, aside from the P0420, I would just drive the car and see what happens. Give it a week or so. I think I'd stop looking at parameters and just drive it to see which demons come back.

This seems like a panic move to me. Yours would be the first bad PCM I've ever heard of, but not the first one to be hopelessly replaced.

But it's your money!

Okay trim levels have came down don't know how well they have stabilized yet,but its negative more than its positive still no KR until last gear above 3k. Need to get some suspension work now,lighter wheels, cause 20's are too heavy for this tank.

ya know,It would be nuts to not have those heads ported and polished & rebuilt with new seals and what not.Even if you dont get them ported,you must have them rebuilt.Dont put tired old heads back on.dont make sense.Its gonna cost ya but,it's way worth it.jmo

Johnny are all of your other issues addressed? Don't compound the problems you already have by installing mods just yet, please. Sorry I haven't been able to keep up with who has which problem, but you don't want to go throwing mods at problems.

I agree, unless it's something small or something that would be cured due to the mods.
