took my car out for another test drive and took it to 4000rpm, it feels faster but I dont think it feels like 200rwhp. Could my stock throttlebody be holding me back a whole lot (stock TB is on till my 60mm is fabricated where it doesnt hit the fuel rail) Anyways, at 4000rpm it feels like maybe 160-170rwhp. Its still hard to get a 2cd gear scratch (shifting at 4000rpm)
When we got home, we smelled burning oil, and came to find that the passenger side valve cover gasket is leaking. I knew the thing looked too big for some reason. and of course, im going to have to get a new one. hopefully it will be on tomrrow. Hopefully the bad gasket will hold up till then, cause I have to drive my car to work today with it, I think it will be fine as long as I keep the rpm's down. I swear I hope I quit running into all the little problems.

It's just a simple gasket problem. After a while for some reason the gasket stretches a little becoming too big for the valve cover. It's a quick 30-45 minute fix.
