Looks much better. It looks cleaner when hooked up backwards, but guess that's just how they designed it. Hows the chip working?
Throttle response is better. This could be due to the hks plugs?? Anyway, loving it so far. Shift points have also changed. I noticed in sport mode, it revs higher before changing gears. I'm actually looking for ward to seeing what the can catches. When I unscrewed the oil cap,I noticed some sludge underneath the cap. I put my finger in the valve cover and removed some sludge as well. Is this normal? I think before next oil change I'll dump a can of seafoam in the crankcase and another in the gas tank.
I'm thinking of putting my car on the dyno to see what kind of power it's making.
My OCC has collected a few ounces of liquid so far. Mixture of oil and fuel blow by. Smells terrible. I don't think sludge under the valve cover is normal, unless there was an owner before you that may not have kept up with maintenance. You can actually run Seafoam from the "out" hose on your OCC to the intake manifold. Have a friend hold the idle steady while you let the Seafoam get sucked up through the hose. New plugs usually always make the car feel smoother at idle. I plan on swapping out mine with HKS after I pick up a chip.
