We found it, but it wasn't going to be solved since the oil cooler was pulled out of the car before I bought it. That adapter was being looped in on itself so it was probably just going to keep developing a leak.

Loaded the new spark tune then retuned the VE table. Now I'm having a hard time keeping it on the road at WOT. It even spun the 245 50s into second.

AND this is only 2psi! Muhahahahahaaa

Well, drove to work this morning. Was going to park in the north parking lot, but when it came time to turn, I just kept going, and slid down the road on the ice. Guess I'll park in the south lot today.

I'm hoping the slide down the ice was intentional and fun. Unlike the times I slide on snow/ice where its "OH CRAP! THE WHEELS AREN'T RESPONDING TO THE STEERING WHEEL!". That was the first time I drove the Impala in the snow, I thought I was still driving a corolla that weighs 800 pounds less.

I felt it slide, so I just pumped the brakes and didn't turn the wheel.
