Ok I think I'm going to go and clean the tb on my rides.

Few questions...

You recommend using seafoam first. Any other products you can recommend that do the same thing. I checked at CT, and they don't have "seafoam". I'm going to try Napa tomorrow.

You said to install a new gasket... where do I get this gasket from? the dealer? or will it be something most auto places will have? Any certain type or pn?

have you tried using more than one can of the seafoam in the intake to maybe eat some carbon off the inside of the SC? Image what it looked like before you did that.

i wanted to spray some seafoam/throttle body cleaner into the supercharger but i was afraid of damaging something internally on the supercharger. I didn't know if there were any bearings or anything that would be damaged by using a degreaser inside of it. If I knew it were safe, I'd definately clean the supercharger up some.

You can use the vac post for the line that runs to the BCS. It is not needed at idle engine speed.

there should be one leading from the PCV valve you can use, correct?

No, the PCV system is entirely contained in either your upper intake or SC.

A side note.....at least with Series 1, the L67 is MUCH simpler in removing the TB than the L27. Quite frankly, the L27 is a little bitch. A couple of the heatshield bolts on the lower manifold are hard to get to, and the steel threaded inserts in the neck of the upper intake like to spin.

Not sure how the S2 L67 or L36 compare, but I've done both Series 1 drivetrains now, and much prefer the L67 on this job.
