Yea, It drives great. I don't think it add very much power but the response is a lot better. Now my M.A.P. Sensor is bad so I will need to replace it. The bottom broke off of if and I put some ATV sealant on it to seal it back together but there were a few wires that were broken inside. Error Code P0107. This is the first time my check engine light has came on since I have owned the car.
At least you know you hooked everything up correctly and the check engine light works! I as also wondering if you noticed any coolant in your oil? If so, what did you do to get that out other than just flush and change the oil (I assume)? I have been told that once the coolant gets into the bottom end it is the end for the engine unless you catch it really early and completely deal with it.

Both of you could (have) been leaking oil at the PCV passage between the upper and lower intakes. Manifold vacuum would pull it to the inside, preventing you from ever leaking to a visible spot.

Sorry for the thread necromancy, but:

What did you use to get the fuel lines off of the fuel rail?

Blow the dust off.....it'* been collecting for over 3 years. Please don't dig up old topics. Start a new one. Sometimes our advice and best practices will change over time as we learn new methods.

For your question, just squeeze the plastic tabs together with needlenose pliers, and pull the fuel line off. The plastic tabs you squeeze will stay on the fuel rail, and the black fuel lines will pull away. Same holds true for your fuel filter.

If you have further problems, please start a new topic of your own.
