My car will act a bit funny sometimes in the rain. I've been through some tough water and had to pull my charge tube and clean up the MAF. I never drive around with tap shift. I tried it the other day for you went from 4th to 3th there was a slight jolt in the RPM ( kind of what I see here) but nothing major. Also your boost is about to kick in right there 2.5k-3k so your fuel trim is going to change a bunch. when I did my down shift from 4th to 3rd I can see my vacuum change to almost almost 0.

LASTLY! PUT GAS IN YOUR CAR!!!

Don't let it get to that point. (unless you want your fuel pump to break) and then you can upgrade it to HPFP like the one in the ZL1 then you should see a difference in your gas milage. HA

But keep us posted. Here in Miami (the sunshine state) it always rain or it is very humid. So I wonder if this is going to be an issue I will have to deal with cause the weather here is non consistent. (Except with the heat)

ZL1 doesn't have a hpfp.. that's for direct injection and would need to come from the LF3. The zl1 in tank pump shouldn't hurt either though

The ZL1 pump will flow more consistant and more volume, so DI can have a more stable pressure when needed, the LF3 injection pump will also help. New tunes would be required either way.

I wonder which pump helps more...? Gretchen made alot of power after the hpfp without supplemental fuel. I wonder how it would be with just the lf3 hpfp and no zl1 pump.

Probably though if your needing more fuel you would just do both.

Just hit 20k miles the other day, the cars been driving fine, but winter has been absolutely brutal on it. Been hit twice (not my fault of course), and yet another exhaust leak...this time it is the passenger side turbo, no bolts are missing, all bolts are tightened...any ideas?

When you got hit was it in the back? Could have tweeked the exhaust enough to make it leak there where the exhaust hooks up to the turbo. I know mine were a pain to seal, and the metal gasket had to be positioned just right and I used rtv.
