When I first did the mod on my previous LMM I was having conversations regarding the effects and Hook em Horns pointed out that very thing. Keeping the vanes moving will certainly help to prevent sticking.

I equated it to a couple of systems on the Aircraft I fly that if not exercised regularly those systems have valves or solenoids that can and will begin sticking.

The phrase "Use it or Lose it" comes to mind. It may not help but it certainly cannot hurt.

That was a lot of words to say, Your Thinking is Right On.

Exactly, keeping the vanes moving.
That where having rumble tunes helps the vanes opening and closing while idling when your not using the TB. I feel anyway.

Shoot Hook'em, I was happy that I was mentioned in the same sentence as the 'Grand Puba of All Things Duramax' --- YOU!

There you go with the bad ideas again. If I call her I may end up thinking I was wrong. Happens to me at home a LOT!
