.......and this is why I haven‘t purchased a used car in my adult life.
This made me laugh really hard.
Update if anyone cares. I just finished my email tune with Drob on just 93 for now.
I have concluded in my own head that its just a valve seal or multiple. I don't think I floated a valve as there's no ticking tapping etc. and the smoke is very little since my W1 doesn't leak anymore and only occurs after I drive away from idling, never while driving or WOT. The car runs just fine besides the smoke at idling conditions. Drob didn't see any thing weird in the data-logs . Not sure if he even would though.
So now I'm debating taking the head off and looking at everything and doing all new gaskets and everything that needs to be replaced, ARP head studs and BC titanium springs and if the head needs machining ill send it to MAP or whomever will do the work. Well get there if we need too. OR. Waiting for the local custom Honda shop to do the work for me.
They said mid February at the soonest.
And as soon as the car is back to running ill put it on the dyno and finish the tune remotely with Drob. just waiting and thinking if I want to go through this or not lol
Moral of the story she hasn't blown up yet! and I'm not gentle...
