This mod has been around for awhile. It was one of the things to do when the LT1 came out and I even did it on my 96 Z. Does it make a difference?? Not near enough to make a difference if any at all but the point is there at the end of the day. Note though, if you drive your truck daily and live in really cold climates I would leave it hooked up.

Is it something you will feel? Probably not, but due to the need to keep the ETC throttle-bodies clean for proper function, I feel the modification really lends itself to making this task easier and if for nothing else I like it.

I did this mod today. I'm hoping for at least 10 rwhp gain out of this :fingersx: :laugh:
All I did was just re-route the hose coming out of radiator. No extra material needed.

I could've swore I got 20AWHP...all jokes aside, it's an easy FREE MOD that just keeps temperatures a little more constant, IMO. Never noticed any gains, but I am sure I didn't lose any either.
