The block is physically the same so the idler bolts right up in place of the power steering pump. I got mine from a local junkyard. I'm hoping to be able to see some gains soon. Keep up the good work Nate and keep us updated
Thanks for the good info, let me know how the install goes(maybe pictures) and be sure to track any gains you have. I am working on my best ever tank right now 43ish mpg so far. I did get a new job and my new commute is only 7.5 miles each way, but traffic makes my mpg less predictable. I am also saving gas by biking for errands and to work, 30 miles in the last week.
