It was only 1/4 way up if that. Next interval 1500 miles.
It was a tan brown color and smelled of gas and blowby crud. Only a smattering of water droplets on the bottom.
I am VERY happy at how my rings have seated. Not using the OEM method worked like charm like it has on all my vehicles over the years.
Short trips are bad. They don't heat up your oil to boil out fuel and water. My last oil analysis showed that.
Next change I'll make sure to go on the highway for a bit b4 sampling and mailing it off to Blackstone.
It looks like I can cut, and re-wield, to lower the can about. 1/2"-3/4", which may let me mount the Tanabe STB. I'll find out Tuesday at the shop. I'm not hopeful.
The Megan STB does not have preload and has bolt pinch friction slop in the design. A bolt through slotted holes can slip. Not the best design. It looks like the Megan brackets allow for the bar to sit forward more than the Tanabe bar, so it MAY clear the CC in it's current position.
A smart shop might fab a Magen STB bracket to accept the Tanabe STB bar eliminating the slop and making preload easy.
I do like the Tanabe bar better with the adjusters at the ends of the bar. The fit n finish is very nice.
