What did you do to your Colorado/Canyon today?

The throttle body is an important part of the vehicle that allows air to flow into the engine. As with all combustion, air is required for an engine to fire properly. Generally, the more air flow available, the higher the power output of an engine will be.

The throttle body contains two flaps which can open or close. When the gas pedal is pressed, these flaps open to allow air into the engine. If a throttle body with larger spacing and bigger flaps is installed, more air is able to flow into the engine, and power can be increased.

Youre sorta right. Air is only part of the system though and fuel is the other. All this does is make it easier for the air to flow in, reducing pumping losses, until he gets tuned ;)

Haha, yeah, that was just a quick search for him. I'm not the most mechanically inclined person myself either though. Lol

You need fuel and air in a very specific range to even be burnable... There are rich and lean burn limits... Anything within those will run... Under boost I prefer 13.7 AFR

New one big 80mm, old one small 60mm.

Try breathing through a straw, then try breathing through a paper towel tube. Which is easier for you? Same thing is true for your engine

Not sure if it's a combination of the intake and throttle body but once the throttle body was installed it made a huge difference in linear power throughout the powerband.

The BNR tune was great on it's own, when I installed the exhaust with it, I got a little more jumpyness in the gears again. Once the intake was installed it smoothed it out a bit and helped with acceleration but still a little jumpy in city driving. With the throttle body it smoothed it out perfectly in city driving and it feels like it just keeps pulling on the freeway. With the tune it should be perfect for everyday AND spirited driving. Main thing is that I don't feel like I have the bigger tires on it anymore.

The eibachs have a 2" lift and I have a RC spacer on top.

Kenwood KSC-SW11 Compact Subwoofer

Got this today and plan on installing under the rear seat. Plenty of room and I could fit two in there with room to spare.
I was looking at the similar Kicker 11HS8 SW, but it is a bit larger, would require some cutting, and according to reviews, the Kenwood does a great job of just filling in the bottom end. There are a few YouTubes on it and reviews.
And. .. I could fit TWO of them in the cab if I wanted to. . maybe even under the front seats!
Also, I liked these because they do not require more than 12AWG for power since they are 75watts RMS (150 peak).

Wow. . some pretty fancy pics there. Are some enhanced or just have a high end DLSR with 500MB imaging?

Great looking Truck. .. what did you use to polish and shine it up?

Swapped the Terra 45 Superwinch for the Tigershark 9500 on the winch plate. Removed the old winch hook from the MileMarker 9000 steel cable, because everything on the Tigershark is stupidly large for no reason. Also ordered another Terra 45 remote and socket to replace the pointlessly absurd remote that comes with the winch.

Continued plastidipping the toolbox.

The hybrid box looked pretty cool with a black lid, though. Overspray prevented me from keeping it that way, though.

Changed the fuel filters in the Dmax. I wasn't expecting as much diesel fuel to drain out as did... around a 1/4 gallon. I almost replaced the drain valve about 1/2 through the drain thinking something was wrong but just let it go and it finally stopped.
