    Alright, I suppose I should give an update!

    I had a local shop perform a full leakdown on the motor and vac leak check. The leakdown results were excellent, with less than 4% loss in each cylinder. The Vac leak check was not so great. Evidently I had vac leaks in hoses, from the TGV-cyl head gaskets, TMIC-TB silicone coupler and a few others. Furthermore, like I suspected, injector 3 was poorly seated in the fuel rail. At least I now know from where the issues arose. Furthermore, I'm excited to hear that my motor is in excellent condition. Since I mentioned I had checked injector #3, I will tell the embarrassing story to anyone who wishes to know via PM.

    Matthew already knows the story, and the rest of you I'll tell over pillow-talk

    Anyway, car is back. Vac leaks have all been addressed.

    Thank goodness! Though, I know you would've enjoyed riding in my 400 hp stage 1 3rd gen if your car wasn't good to go...

    So I was browsing through the first page and I'm confused by this:

    Custom Alignment -- -1.1 deg front camber, 0 toe, 0 caster, -1.05 deg rear camber
    You have ZERO caster? Why would you want that, and how did you even get that much adjustment?

    Now I question this as well. My caster was not adjusted during the alignment, as adjustment can only be achieved by PSRS bushings (ALK), lowering springs and the like. The alignment readout showed -1.1 Front camber, 0 toe, 0 caster... but perhaps the caster readout was a differential measurement. I'm not sure. If stock is -3.5 degrees, that's the alignment with which the car currently sits.
