All done, same setup minus values comparing it to the stock CCV. All that was changed was a more robust hose leading to the intake. The codes I pulled were for running lean and 2 for the ICV most likely due to the hose being pinched with vacuum. Cleared the codes and took a 25 mile highway drive and no lights came on. The 3 liter i6 still has that 'beefy' feel that I like to associate with inline cylinder configurations. Overall I'm glad I took on this project. I love to tinker and this has met my tinkering needs. In the future I will try to make it look much more clean by utilizing a different vacuum source. I have plans to use the opening on the intake tube right after the MAF
