Looks pretty normal. On a hot day, you're going to have more KR. Be careful with that. 2.4 may have been a bit too aggressive without a better exhaust, particularly ported exhaust manifolds.

It was 100 degrees outside with the 2.4 pulley on. (hehe) I am going a little KR which I know are from leaky manifolds. Going to be taking care of that soon.

Is that good or bad?

We don't have a MAT sensor. You do. I don't know what your normal readings should be. Do you have an FSM?

Hmm, I interepreted it as IAT, because my scantool says MAT instead, when I know I don't have an MAT to begin with.

Funny my scan tool doesn't have a IAT reading? At least I don't see it?

Disconnect your IAT and see what the scanner says.
