Your trim numbers look good but the data in the file you supplied is all at 194 degrees, a fully warmed up engine. Codes can get set when cold, and gaskets tend to leak more when cold.

If the fuel wasn't being burned you'd get a code. 4 holes versus 2 holes isn't going to make a big difference in mileage.

We're in the age of the computerized automobile. No more real tuning.

I don't think that what you're describing is a "well-known" problem of sticking clutch packs. Sticking LSD's are usually from a lack of friction modifier, usually right after changing fluid or...

Engineers, and others, often shoot for perfection then have their work dumbed down for production. Maybe what you're seeing is the ideal reduced down to the realities of making money. It's a relic...

The IACV is cleanable. Sounds like it might just be gummed up. Slow responding. I think it's controlled by a PWM signal so it's supposed to reposition often and quickly. Use some carb cleaner and...

Sounds like maybe a bad brake booster. Do you keep your foot on the brake pedal while doing your testing? Pumping the brakes would close the vacuum leak each time you let off the pedal. Try...

If it is fine in Neutral, but not Park, then I wouldn't think it's an engine part only problem. The MAF and fuel pressure and all of that are still in play in Neutral, Drive, and Reverse. Maybe...

Pretty pretty pretty sure it's a 31 spline. They didn't go to 34 until well in to the 2000 teens. Not sure that you really need to know length. If you have the year of your truck and model almost...

Aftermarket remans in general are known to be bad out of the box often. That's why they give lifetime warranties. Lifetime supply of bad parts.

It should be on sequential injection (independent cylinders) at idle speed. The only thing that would be "banked" at idle would be the camshaft.

Like mbb said, something is out of alignment, or cocked. Stand on the side and look straight down the belt. Your eye is a good gauge for belt alignment. Everything should be in the same line and...

Probably seems like I'm trolling you but nobody knows what "the noise" or "some noise" means. There are a lot of different noises in the world.

The Owners' Manual has a Maintenance section. It's pretty easy reading. Lots of other good stuff in it too, besides oil. It's probably in the glove box. All new vehicles come with a free one.

You're spending a lot of thought on "some noise coming from the rear diff". Could be a stick stuck in the drive shaft.
