Not sure about your problem. But yes the ECM will learn a new TB. I just changed mine to a ported unit. Bolt on, plug in and go.

Thanks Dennis, that is what I also researched. Codes are gonna stick unless I throw parts at it or a relearn works, but not finding a clear procedure to do this that applies to our TBs

Less back pressure, 3x the filtering of one, I run a high output oil pump, and well - it's kinda a cool talking point at car shows. Actually, it's an old Smokey Yunick trick if anyone knows who he is. "Smokey Yunick always insisted that FOUR (2) quart filters in parallel were required to properly fi...

Twas the good old day's - guys like Smokey, Herb Adams, Kern Osterstock of HO Racing, Nunzi Romano, etc. Back then there was no Summit, Jegs, or even the Web to order parts.

I loved the trick of increasing the fuel line size to gain a pit stop advantage on the other cars. Took NASCAR a while to figure out how he was able to get by with a shorter pit stop time then the other cars.

Never heard of that trick. I agree that even if it appeared to revive the newer battery, for the price of a new battery, I wouldn't trust it anymore.

I use a Ctex charger that has a refresh cycle, it has brought every dead battery back to life for a significant time frame. I would be surprised if your tender didnt have that function.
