Yeah, I don't think I'll try the 7 heat range yet, it took some time for
it to adapt to the 6 heat range, for the first few miles my throttle
response was a little dull.

I'm going to see about having some poor schlub change the O2 sensor for
me and reset the ECU, drive for a while and see what my plugs look
like. They sure seemed awful white to me when I pulled the FR4s
especially considering the normal drive for this truck is 2.5 miles each
way to and from work with 10-13 stoplights each way. The O2 sensor is
the stock one I'm pretty sure and there's 144k on the truck, so I'm 44k
overdue. ;)
