    New throttle body

    I need to replace my throttle body on my 06 Calais and I was just wondering would I need to get it tuned after I change it? I'm thinking of going to the wreckers and getting one from an old VZ would that make any difference from buying a brand new one?

    VZ ute fuel pump replacement

    Does anyone know if you can get to the fuel pump assembly on a VZ ute through the tray floor or do you have to drop the tank? Also the workshop guide says you basically have to pull half the car apart to drop the tank! Is this true or is there an easier way? Thanks
