    Nope. I'm wondering if I'm getting some wear in the spindle assemble for that TB? I need to call Raceline next week about some related items, so I'll ask them if they've seen this before.

    The plot thickens. Yesterday afternoon I warmed up the car and redid the test. I set #1 to TDC then confirmed it was correct with a dial indicator. Leak down was 10%. Hmm... Did again, with the...
