Jim...appears that's a Monte SS style exhaust...and possibly not turbo mufflers.

My dad was in the care facility across the street. Flat tires and the racks caught my attention. It may have had a cover on it at some point. Mid Dec '17 was the last I was there.

Ok, got side tracked with detailing and such but had it running again today. TT Chip installed! MAF hose is/was in good shape but yes, Iím guilty as I missed a couple of very small tares which where repaired. (Thin smear of right stuff on inner and outer surface)
Started it up this afternoon and INT is 128, BL still at 142. All other values look good.
So while prowling around under the car on jack stands looking for my source of oil leak (brand new valve covers gaskets installed) so Iíve eliminated that possibility (nice n dry up there) I discovered the exhaust IS leaking at the DS crossover. I can feel it against my hand on block side.

So, I will pull the crossover off and go from there, as it looks like I have to do the pan gasket and rear main seal anyway
Thanks to all you guys for your input. Yes, I feel like an ass!! 😂

Jim...if the crossover pipe is fukd...don't get one from Kirbans. I grabbed one from them a few years back...and it didn't come close to fitting. The studs will prolly snap. Pull the header...it ain't that hard...and install new ones. I know you don't like gaskets...but if any exhaust gases escape to the atmosphere it'll spool slower and your BLM's will be out of whack. I run both header gaskets and a turbo flange gasket. I've got 'er sealed up tight. Ya' I know. They never had gaskets...but after a gazillion heat cycles...stuff warps.

Thx, yes Iíve done the headers a number of times.
Iíll pull the crossover off and see whatís going on with the ball n flange there. I have to do the pan gasket anyway so Iíll dig in. To me it looks like some stooge has been in there trying to fix the oil leak and installed the gasket wrong, but at the rear of block you can see ALOT of the rubber gasket hanging out from the pan. Almost looks like they missed the bolt holes in the gasket lmao WTF??

Just an update guys. I FINALLY got the car running to perfection!
It was a combination of a number of things but mainly a serious DS header leak ( thereís a surprise uh) poor rotted vacuum lines, injectors and dialing the tune back in. Proper gapped plugs wires ect.

Itís running absolutely fantastic!
Just a big thank to EVERYBODYíS input! The cars can certainly be a challenge at times. Itís been 5 months almost to the day since I bought this, so definitely a lot of work in her. Still lots but real sweet having it running perfectly, all parameters on SM are bang on.

A lot of broken parts does not make you a racer; it makes you a slow learner.
