Gotta be from a different year. It'* got a long probe. My original one is pretty stubby.

If you want a Bill one... unhook your vacuum to the brake booster and overlook that moster ....then try and start your car.

How'* things looking today? Good pressure..good running?

Change the oil within a 100 miles. Just to ensure any gasket material etc is washed out.

Pressure is good. Almost 60 on the highway. Stays above 40. Still running smooth. The coating on the PEMs is outgassing. I still haven't got into the boost. Almost 30 miles on it.

Oops, just discovered I didn't hook up the vac reservoir. The windshield was getting chilly.

Well if I wasn't feeling around back there to see which plug wire went where, I wouldn't have knocked it off.

I'm gonna go out and change the oil. What should I be looking for, if anything?

Use a super clean bucket to drain into and look for anything unusual. Sounds like it'* running fine and there will be no issues.

You might see some gasket material but I wouldn't expect any surprises.
