    yeah that doesn't sound right. Normally the max you get is about 8" of vacuum, and it should gradually increase to that as you give it throttle. Sounds like the regulator is sticky. It should live...

    yeah, dirty but not horrible. When they have large hard chunks or it looks like a Jello mold, then you've got problems. A few oil changes will loosen a lot of that crap up.

    I doubt 1.7's are a problem. The only time you really risk valves meeting the piston is with long duration cams, and the rockers don't add any real amount of duration. I also don't know that they...

    too much distance will also make the wire flash and burn off before it sticks.

    put a vac gauge on the line to the EGR and watch what it does. If it doesn't vary, but simply shows vacuum or no vacuum, the regulator isn't working right. I had a sticky one and fixed it with a...

    oh, no variable? hm. Maybe worth checking the ground connection too if you haven't. Rust under the clamp reduces the power.

    even the stock tanks tend to take a good while to rust. The galvanized coating makes them difficult to paint anyway. I'd leave it. If you want to paint something, paint up inside the car where the...

    Put a timing light on it and see if it holds stable. One of the symptoms of the sloppy chain is surging when running.

    also, if you haven't yet, inspect the vacuum line to the MAP sensor. That...

    Each generation has some gremlins. I think its the 03 or 03-04 that have timing tensioner issues. The early post-03 models also had weaker rear axle shafts that fail too early. I think that got...

    It should stay at trim height for weeks if things aren't leaky. The car I messed up last year hasn't been started since January and the air suspension is still up.

    Should be fine. Just mind that its the 200 hp HO, it uses E6 heads. Vaguely possible that with a hotter than stock HO it will run lean a little quicker than the 225 hp version would.

    I hate springs and spring compressors. They make me very nervous. Single best thing about air suspension, releasing stored energy is simple and safe.
