I think this stuff smokes when it burns. How does it hang around so quickly upon shutting the engine off? I notice to that I had a leak at a hose fitting and on the floor is like a greenish oil spot. Does all of this type fuel have this type stuff in it?
Thanks

What kind of fuel are you using some leave a blue look behind and some leave a green look for what I have seen. The turbo blue I was running before going to alky left a blueish look on my gaskets and things.

It's most likely the Race Fuel . Mine would do that when it was on RF.

I would think the port wall gets a film of fuel that will run to the lowest point once the engine is shut off.

This fuel is a 114 octane vp or sunnco. I got a quick fuel 1250 on it and my plugs get black or are always black. Is to much gas feeding at idle or when the motor is reved a few times?
Thanks

I had a couple of issues with the TFS intakes, one being a porosity issue. They will stand behind their product and make it right. Atleast they did for me.

I talked with tfs today and the intake did have an issue. They said that they could stop the seeping if i wanted to save my port work or they could send me a new one. I chose the new one and a set of 1/6'' gaskets. Im fixin to order an offset manual brake kit from skinny kids so i can drive this thing and see what's up with these rings seating.
Thanks

I got my new intake today. Now i gotta get started porting it and gasket matching. Is there any special points that need to be focused on? Im just going in to get all the roughness out and leave a 80 grit finish.
Any info on porting this intake will be great.
Thanks

I assume trickflow make nice stuff but for this a460 R intake to cost so much, it dont come out of the mold to nicely. I wouldnt run it straight out of the box. To much flashing. ''F''
