w00t! I think I figured out my lean issue. the hose from the valve cover to the air box was disconnected from the air box. Hopefully that fix's it. I'm a long way from home and I hate to take it someplace.

Opinions, insite?

yup exactly. take pics of the car inside and out as it sits, list out any not obvious "good stuff" then see what happens.

I'm always surprised but I wind up making a good portion of my money back on the little random stuff like clips/trim pieces that people want to replace broken stuff on their car.

well any opening past the MAF will make you run lean because unmetered air is getting into the motor... so sounds about right.

as someone who has broken his fair share of christmas tree clips and trim pieces... this.


also CATIA is not "intuitive" and Dassalt Systems needs to be shot for stating it as such.
