You’re gonna love how quiet your interior will be.. and a satisfying crisp and solid sound when you close the doors.. the KilMat makes a huge difference.

And the price is so much less than Dynamat or some of the other "name" products.

Noico brand is even less expensive.. their 80 mil is the same quality as the others. Just doesn’t have the brand name on it.

Took off fast today leaving the sub-division and it didn't like shifting into 3rd. Did what short running I needed to do in town, but if I was in the throttle above cruising it didn't like the 2-3 shift.

Long story short, one of the hoses I put in place during the LS swap was leaking/spraying. Took me an hour and 3 parts houses to figure out that 11/32" hose is power steering hose. Got it fixed, but will likely drop it off somewhere for them to run solid lines. Should be able to get it done for $100 here locally with me providing the line.

i was having occassional and random high idle on the 350 TBI. according to ALDLDROID the IAC valve was getting stuck in random positions even though it was only 3 yrs old. So I replaced it with a delphi and am hoping for longer life. I also replaced the multifunction switch so the cruise would stop kicking off when I turned on the wipers. it took me a while to do the switch because I convinced myself it was a safety feature to prevent the cruise from use during the rain :)

Today:

Put the new door seals in.
Put the old headliner back in................. a little bit of a challenge by one's self. Cleaned it, looks better outside the cab
Added some of the newly painted trim parts.
Cleaned, painted and reinstalled the rear speaker brackets & speakers.
(I'll have to take them out again when I decide what I'll cover the insulation with, the cardboard tray was a mess)

Wasn't that the objective????
Only way to get fatter is with what I used to run. Goodyear 31x16.0 slicks. 19.6 sectional & 16.1 tread width. Fills the tubs out just right, but I'm not going that route again. No more bias tires. Can get scary quick with any kind of moisture on the street.

I actually trimmed off some fat. Went from a 17.9 to a 17.7 sectional width. Tread width stayed the same @ 15.7 but in exchange I'm gaining a sticky compound. Tired of the tires breaking just to pull into traffic quickly. Also lost 2" in height.

Had a stumble/jerk at highway speeds last week, so I parked her Wednesday night while I got parts. Got plugs, and ordered a fuel filter- that was not in stock.

PS plugs replaced Thursday evening- that's the motors bad side. Also picked up the fuel filter.

Sprayed carb cleaner down the bore while there - can't hurt. Wait - why is there now a puddle on the intake manifold, drivers side, below the carb ?
Dammit.

Nobody stocks a carb gasket- ordered them Friday.

Could not do anything Monday as had to pick the Camaro up from the body shop - hood clear coat bit the dust.:boxed:

Carb gaskets came in, though, so last night I changed it out via the I am a lazy POS method.

Which means I only disconnected 1 vaccuum line and the fuel line and after taking the mounting bolts out raised the carb just enough to get the old gasket out and the new one on.

There with the fuel line so a new filter went in, too.

Not a scientific method as I did test drive it after the plugs - helped, but did not solve it- and did 2 things at the same time last night.

Oh, well- in her today.:cool:

Pretty sad when a 2000 4 Runner with a 3.4 V6 has got more oomph than a 350 V8, but proper gears (4:30 from Toyota) and fool injection plus 20 more years of knowledge on how to balance power with emmissions explains a lot of it.
