Not me, but very interested to find out. Actually for the long run, I think I will need to replace my scanner with an updated $$$ one.

Do you have any fuel pressure and volume measurements? Also have you been able to access any fuel trim info? Since you have mentioned that new fuel pump and filter fixed similar symptoms in the past, that is where I would suspect the issue first too. Also the connector issue as mentioned by Speeder....

But where? I got screwed by other places too. Amazon has a great return policy, which is in most cases no questions asked, but I just can't get everything from them. So who else is good these days?

Rock Auto - Automated Customer Service

From what I read here, I know some of you already have an estranged relationship with RockAuto, well it appears that over time things did not get any better. It used to be that in the past you were able to get a live person to talk to you in case it was needed, now there is no such thing any more. I...

Good stuff! Many thanks! Being in similar boat, I was searching the web and where did I find the answer - right here of course. :D Would you say this The O-Ring Store LLC (http://www.theoringstore.com) will sell smaller quantities. Hopefully with expedited shipping. I'm about to install a reman valv...

Thanks Speeder, I agree with your analysis, but somehow it did not work out that way. Initially I was trying to fix my intermittent start issue and initially I have changed the fuel pressure regulator and 2x poppet injectors #5 and #7. The inside of the manifold in their respective area was sparklin...

Update: Some time later, while unsuccessfully investigating an intermittent hard start condition, I finally started to throw parts at the issue. I changed the fuel pressure regulator and two injector poppets (yes, I know I could have upgraded to MPFI spider, but I'm cheap and stubborn), which did no...

Just wanted to update. The hard start issues turned out to be coming from a intermittent fault in the ignition switch, which failed to turn on all circuits and as a result dash was not lit for a few seconds while cranking. However, replacing the fuel pump apparently fixed another long over due issue...

Super Long Aerosol Straw

Just got it from Amazon:
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01ARBC8JW/
It seems like not worth mentioning, but it works so great, I wish I thought about it earlier.

Nice find! Congratulations.

You seem to be set against TBIâ„¢ and I'm sure you have your good reasons.
But to me the simplicity of TBIâ„¢ is just so appealing.

Well... What happened? Thank you for checking. I was able to pinpoint the issue to the ignition switch and installing a new ignition switch seems to have fixed the issue. I did not have much occasion for testing yet, because shortly after the repair I got sick and stayed home for 6 month and only u...

They always used that "disclaimer". EPA probably asked for their sales records to prove it and they either didn't provide them, couldn't provide them, or otherwise failed to prove their point of "off-road use only". EPA has busted several big tuner hardware manufacturers over the years put them out...

Interesting. I wonder if it would have helped if they marketed their products as for racing only. Or maybe they did already?

As far as I know Jeep already has locked ECMs. At least that is what I understand from this:

https://superchips.com/shop/f5-jeep-fla ... 15-2018-jk
PCM Swap Options:
Option 1: Cross-ship PCM swap (subject to availability of PCMs)
Option 2: Send in your factory PCM to be unlocked

I have not used them, but I have the Original GM Factory Manual for 1999 Trucks, that includes my Tahoe.
