idk how to upload a smaller pic to my member file. I hadn't even tried uploading it to this thread yet because it said i had to do that first. I have to figure this out tho because i was going to start a red beetle rehab thread on my red beetle restore.

I blew the seams apart on my intake manifold when the HP wastegate line fell off so I have a huge metered air leak going on
I'll fix it eventually, motor has to come out to get at the intake manifold bolts because of the stupid big air-water core I welded directly to the intake
my fuel economy is way down from the boost leak, I'm only getting like 40 ish

where'd you see me?

ETA: if you mean the smell, that's from the waste oil

that's only 2 miles from home, so the piston bowls were probably cold enough to be smoking white too

Still over off radisson with the dyno, or did you move?

Moved 3 years ago, no longer sharing a shop, not wrenching on cars at all anymore. I'm off of 99th and Daveport now.

JFettig I find that hard to believe. I also find it hard to believe it's been 6-7 year since we lived near each other.
