    Walked outside and looked at it while daydreamin how to improve the small maintenance issues. At times I'm having an idle issue that comes and goes. At times upon cranking it rises to around 2500 rpm before dropping to allow me to go in gear.

    Gents, as you have tajen apart the dashes, on my '99 ws6 stick, where does a/c & heat vent into floor area EXACTLY? Want to spray some Lysol as moldy smell from using Max AC & floor heat. When on Max AC, WHERE is system inhaling the cabin air from? I felt up under glove box.... .... is it just right and above tranny tunnel? Smaller opening than i thought? That grill on topof dash is ONLY exhaust, defrost , right? Never sucks cabin air IN, does it?

    Sorry for amateur q's but i confused???

    HAD tune up with ngk tr5's, injector service done yesterday. need to bring car back to shop tho. slight delay when starting out, seems to be running rough, engine service light came on within ten miles. acceleration is worse than with old plugs.

    check that the wires are seated at both the coil and plug, at times they are a PITA to get on.

    Just hope they didn't crack a plug.

    Had to get a new remote for the car, the old ones case insides speedster from the. Awe, and wouldn't work, and opening the car with they key every time would be annoying with the alarm going off everytime. Just let the dealer do it cause I didn't feel like messing with it and I was there anyways to buy the part.

    Getting the oil changed today, would've just had the dealer do it but didn't bring the synthetic oil and filter with me.

    I remember having a similar problem to yours after my LTs were installed, car would go rough when changing from light load to a little bit more than light acceleration. Found out #3 plug had a crack in the ceramics.

    I've done the swap over to HID bulbs using LMC housings. I've made a how to thread if you need some assistance on what to buy and how to install.

    I have 5 or 6 HID set-ups in the garage actually. I think 2 or 3 are 9006 and one 9005 and then some H1s from another project. I think all I really need are the housing. My truck has projectors that do not play well with HID so i wasted some money, but now it might get some use.

    Just wish i could find a free shipping thing cause for some reason paying the $13.65 shipping just bugs me. (I think I am spoiled by Prime free shipping) Still seems to be the best deal going though and I think I like them better than Hawks housings that are basically same price.

    As far as my research has gone it seems the housing are plug n play and the HID addition is just like any other.

    I am looking at these though as well to upgrade the fogs to match better...

    Yeah it snowballed on me as well.

    I have no regrets though. I can see much better and most times I don't even need to turn my high beams on .

    I have read that some ppl complain about HID in fog. That they don't penetrate far enough. I'll see when we start getting fog in the winter/spring.

    I also notice one more extra bonus with the HID's.

    Any reflector material within range shines like a beacon. I mean literally any like say some that might be on particular city/county/state vehicles with Blue lights that might be hiding on the side of the road.

    I have ran HID on my truck since 09. It is more the color temp causing the reflection than HID. I swapped to LED on it with current setup and it is crazy how they make reflective signs glow, esp with the roof bar. Far past its usable light will still leave signs glowing.

    The fog is the same thing the lower 3000-yellow to stock 4300 is less reflective to the fog and penetrates better.

    I am thinking to go with the LED replacement fogs for the price and I have similar on truck...not to be used around traffic, but badass on backroads. Then do the LMC lows with a 5000K HID since over that decreases usable light. Also, I will likely just forget changing highs for now and leave the Sylvania stock replacements in there since I dont think they will be needed anyway and I hate to drop another 70 plus the cost of some LED since HID highs kinda suck with warm up time.

    What color temp did you go with?

    I have found most LED seem to be in that 6-8 range. I do like the more blue look to em. The good thing is once you have the HID setup it is dirt cheap for a pair of bulbs to swap in and change color temps.
