Fumoto! Had it laying around for a few years. It was supposed to be for my VW, but my brand new VW kept going to the dealer for warranty repair, so i got rid of it and had spare parts. Luckily, it is the same valve for my Forte! Also, that annoying fan shroud rattle got unbearable, so i shoved a washer behind the top passenger side fan shroud mount. Bye bye, annoying rattle!

Yup. Broke down and joined the intake club. Also, adding something from the Hyundai N. I had to send the intake to my brother who lives out of state. I may get it this week.

Which intake did you decide on?

I sent the intake back to Summit Racing. I have a feeling I'm going to get a refund instead of an exchange with the intakes on backorder. Oh well, I guess JB4 will have to do.

I did my oil change and my catch can is empty when i tried dumping the blow by gunk. Since Total Quartz isn't readily available, the Pennzoil Euro L 5w30 is an excellent substitute. If there was any oil consumption, i couldn't tell based on the oil dipstick.

I recently went to drain my catch can and there was a trace of oil/gunk in it (only a few hundred miles since install)...still better in there then on the intake valves!
