I know 16 isn't that great for todays trucks. It IS a 15 year old, high mileage rig, and it did sit for 2 years. As mentioned, the current goal is 20. My tech friend thinks changing the cat ought to get us there. Work continues. I've run Lucas conditioner through a tank to clean and lube injectors (one was ticking and it isn't now). More will be done. The roof bars are off, and we will replace the front valance with one that isn't cutout for foglights. My son is pretty good about wringing mileage from cars. So for its first drive in years, that isn't a bad way to start, delivering rated mileage. We will work at getting it improved.

No leaks, starts easily, idles well, no smoke out the exhaust at idle or off throttle. I didn't run a compression test yet, but imagine that it has even numbers across the cylinders. Little to no blowby, no oil in the intake. We will run Seafoam a couple times to make sure things are clean inside.
