Will see...installed that Innovative chip 70 bucks. They say 35 extra ponies and 5 extra mpg. Wasnt hard but did have to call to get the wire colors I needed to attach the chip. Two wires. They said pull negative cable for some hours and overnight would be perfect to get the ECM to forget how its been running the engine soooooo...will see after next fill up . Also changed up to Denso iridiums. So maybe both tricks will prove useful

Please let us know of the outcome. I'm very curious.

Yeah let us know. Extra horse power AND extra MPG don`t usually go together. One usually suffers when improving the other

Re: What did you do TO your FJ Cruiser TODAY?

Installed the USB Mictuning power socket in the switch panel. The blue LED light doesn't bother me and I'm just happy to have built in charging capability which will be desperately needed for the long trip to the FJ Summit! I also took out all the pieces of the center console in the process and deep cleaned all of them and also cleaned up the parts under the console. I had no idea how dirty and gross it was under there!

Re: What did you do TO your FJ Cruiser TODAY?

Decided to do a full fluid change on the truck before putting my skid plates on. But I just couldn't get the front transfer case drain out, so decided to weld a 17mm nut on top of it. It should make things easier next time doing this and not to have worried about rounding the head ever again.
