I now have just over 125k miles on the BC update
A stock 2008 LS. The mods include activating the cruise control, replacing the steering wheel to the SS stile with the extra buttons for cruise & radio controls.
Fe5 shocks & struts and a new Front 05 SS sway bar, Thanks to eBay and ZZ parts. New forged Al LCAs and the new intermediate steering shaft. That was a pita. Also installed new AC stock 41-103 iridium plugs and both O2 sensors (Denzo 234-4066 rear & 234-4668 front) air filter and sprayed the mass air flow sensor.
Changed the oil & filter using Mobile 1 5W-20 and replaced the original cabin air filter/ mushroom farm.
All this when EBay delivered the BC
from Florida back to TX where it was originally titled
Since then I have changed the oil & filters once both engine and cabin.
After my second oil & filter change I had the P0303 code pop up within 500 miles. As a recall I played swap plugs, injectors and finally cleaned the MAss air flow sensor before the code cleared and provided another 5k miles.
Oil is now 70% and that P0303 is popping every 2nd or 3rd tank of fuel. Averaging 33-34mpg.
Now time to brake out the TechII and see if and how many misfires are actually happening
I checked an still have the original O2 sensors along with a new pair of Densos And that second set of Moog sway bar bushings. My miss order. I read you needed 2 and the listing said one per box so, I ordered 2 boxes and received 2 per box.
@$7.00 It was just the same to keep them as to pay shipping back.
Also it’s time for new tires. RF is showing the wear bars on the stock 195/R65 Toyos.
I still have a complete SS cobalt rear Axel with rotors, calibers, and the SS E-brake assembly and SS rear Coils.
Remember it is set up for 5 lug and I have the 08 LS 4 lug setup and still have the stock LS front coils.
So there you are enjoying running around @ 70 mph getting 32-34 mpg and enjoying the MP3s from the replaced front speakers.
Time to do a little PM deciding if stock 15” or new 16” or a set of SS 18” wheels and 4 new 5lug hubs or....
Work on my Geronimo. Still need to do some smoothing on it’s ruffled feathers.
