sigh...kinda happy now.

Well the oil finally cooked out of the header wrap. Its pretty dark but a least it doesnt smoke or smell anymore. After the install of the orp though, the car sounds pretty nice. aggresive without being obnoxsious (spell?)
Thats a nice compliment considering the other car is a small block v8 with full exhaust.
Cars computer had to get used to everything i guess because it was holding revs for a bit there. That has passed however and the car has become a gym of a daily driver again.
I keep getting an itch to spray or turbo this thing. Buddy of mine ownes an alchy injection company and i think that would be fun to toy with. I think ill wait till the stock clutch goes before i do something like that though. No since in popping it prematurely.
thanks for your help whom-ever chimed in on my valve cover/ header wrap post.

Around 40k-50k. Unless you have had the clutch TSB performed on your car. Then it depends on how long ago that was done. Have you had the car since it was new? If not send a p.m. to Mike (b16sir1991) with your vin# in it and ask him to do an Oasis report. He can tell you if the TSB has been performed and any other service done to the car by Ford dealers.
