You might be right, but I saw a thread on here suggesting rich conditions due to a faulty 02 can trick the computer into thinking the gas is pinned all the time.

My LTFT on Forscan is like 95% . From my understanding it should be under 25%. Worth a shot.

Another 15 mile drive this morning got rid of most of the noise, could still hear some when it dropped back down to idle. A 30 mile trip to a friends house for that second opinion seems to have cured that part too. Now I am back where I was before this whole episode started.

I'm guessing there was a break in period. Maybe the alternator had been sitting on the shelf for a while and just needed the grease to be warmed up.

Still haven't heard anything from the Quick Start people.
