If it feels like theres no air getting in, remove the butterfly valve. It makes me mad too. angry Or get a CAI or SRI.

Heres the guide for removal of butterfly valve. No Performance enhancement, but it does let more air into your mixture. VVT my ass! Good luck with the lift bolts.

thumbsup No prob. Good luck with the lift bolts. You shouldn't have to drain your oil at all. If you don't think you can do it all, take it to a professional!
