New Year = Emission Testing

The Chevelle has been running great! The only major problem at the moment is that it is leaking oil out of the valve covers. Because the valve covers get so hot it burns the oil and makes the engine smoke and smell pretty bad lol.

Hydrocarbons 197/450 PASS; Idle 247/450 PASS
Carbon Monoxide 2.49/3.75 PASS; Idle 2.56/5.00PASS

(scroll down a few posts to compare this years results with last years)

The readings are very similar to last years except for the idle because we tuned it up just a little bit because of the winter months.
