Tonight plan was to change SC oil and put on a MAP TB heat shield I got used off a ILGPC member for $10
: SC oil change went fine, pumped out with hand soap dispenser, got most of it cause 2 bottles filled right up to bottom of threads. good.
Now the bad, when pulling off the rear TB bolt to slide in the heat shield, coolant leaked out, damn, gasket seal got broken with removal of 1 bolt. Good thing I had a extra gasket I bought for "just in cast" few weeks ago. Wasn't planing on removing the TB tonight but you gotta do what you gotta do. Tb shield looks nice though, finished by flashlight
Peace of mind Todd said, Thanks again Todd, I called and asked him a few questions, still tracking down the last of my misfires, the non platnium plugs took most of it away, and noticed some corrosion on the igntion coils, tonight I cleaned them up along with the boots. Kinda weird, I do only have 34K.
Something I noticed that the coils closest to the motor had the most corrosion, 6, 3 and 2. the furtest away coil 1 was totally clean, got progressivly worst as closet the the motor. Obviously a heat issue, and Todd pointed out the corrosion definitly would be causin slight misfires. Car drives fine just my gas pedal still would vibrate someone under heavy load and WOT considerable better after the plugs last weekend.
Took for a test drive after wards tonight and didn't feel any vibration
Still need more time to tell but all is good so far
Planning on getting PCM changed to run 160 fan turn on and tstat soon. along with a 3.3 pulley for street along with Todd'* latest code.
Also got my Michelin Pilot Sport A/* tires on. dry traction is better, cornering is far better and the best is the wet traction, drives like it'* dry out.
All things combined I can just feel that 13 sec slip in my future on street tires.
Going to borrow a set of drag slicks off a ILGPC member for a track outing too, that should definitly have mid-high 13'* all over it.
