      You'll be fine running it as it is. The amount it's sticking out is totally minimal and will not hinder its performance. Mine sit like that in my control arms and there's been no issues :thumbup:

      Definitely sounds like it could be a vacuum issue. Or it could also be a faulty MAF that isn't getting the right air readings. Just for sh*ts and giggles, get some MAF cleaner and spray the blade...

      Could it be a Gray wire with a yellow stripe? I just pulled out the pig tails that plug into the fogs and it has an orangish-brownish wire and a gray w/ yellow stripe wire. Saw the same one on the...

      Just took the car for it's first test drive out of the garage in over three years! However...it seems the car decides it wants to stall after a rev at high RPM. Any thoughts?

      Nope. Never actually seen that before. What I'm talking about is white, is sorta square shaped, and fits into the horizontal slots at the top of the core support. They're super small.
    20. Source info: Plastic inserts used to attach the grill to the core support?

      Anyone know where to find those small plastic threaded inserts that clip into the core support that you screw the top of the grill into? Or does anyone have a part number? TIA :thumbup:
