yes it made a difference but you have to do other mods prior to turning up the pump....as for the details on the truck id so go for it but do alot of reading before buying

Read up on IPs, yours is a manual 2831 IIRC, at 130,000 to about 160,000 they often need rebuilding.

I'd offer $3200 as has been suggested.
