Don't sweat it. That car will be real good to you once you get the kinks worked out. 200k, 300k, and 400k miles is not that uncommon. You have a good car, you just need to make up for some neglect. LOL? gezz, my kids say stuff like that when they talk

Well boys,
Looks like this plenum did it up. Sealed tight. I cannot believe the BS we went through over this. feels good to be essentially finished. Tomorrow is an oil change and new coolant. That should seal the deal.
New plugs, wires, plenum+gaskets, Head gaskets, LIM, fuel injector O rings, other misc O rings, and about 5 new tools.
I feel like i could tear down that motor blindfolded with a gun to my head.
Cheers!

Yea Dan, especially when it was this much hassle to find out it was the easiest part to fix. Note to everyone, take care of your plenums! they are kind of expensive. Up here in Canada it was nearly 250$, but lucky me I got it for 140$.

Let this be a lesson to you. Pay attention to your car. Love it, clean it, keep it happy. If you don't do that, it will bite you.
