Never seen a pump before keep up with high pressures as good as this one under low AMP loads.

That's amazing that your pump fixed your lean issues. I didn't even think about that! Might throw in a 465 as a direct replacement to my car and see what happens.
Yeah I figured if it wasnt a boost leak, and it was lean on both maps. Lean = less fuel so maybe its fuel delivery! Fuel pump was cheap and easy enough to replace so I figured why not! And then voila!

What are your AFR's now? Had to go into boost today (can't really because of the blow-by) but the car completely just lost traction and slid the rear out which was cool. Felt good for not going into boost for 2 weeks lol.

A few of us actually did get together for a few hours. It was just small and we kept adding people.

Talking about that. Kyle is needing help with his. He's got to put new gaskets on it. Any way you could possible help since you seem to have all the tools.

Does he know if its valve cover or head gaskets? Head gaskets would be miserable. Valve cover gaskets are cake.

Valve covers are about 1 hour. 9 bolts on each side, take coils out and boom. Just do it from underside of the car.

Oh and my time is like 2x anything I say, at least. so 1 hour = 2 real hours.
