@JerseyDrew77 cylinders had me concerned. Been seeing major smoke even on very minor right turns then WOT. The Ruth's were due anyways so decided to do plugs, scope the cylinders and put the BM PCV back on to see if that helped. So the plugs....



Can clearly see where oil is smacking into them from the intake side.

Gap was good at 0.024 to 0.026. I gapped the new ones to 0.022.

Scoped the cylinders. Apologies for the video of a video. I did all 4 in one go and it was 1.6GB lol. This is #4.

Interesting clean area like that on all of them. Must be directly below the intake valves?

Cam lobes look good.



That one mark I saw awhile back is gone.

Hoping that it's just the PCV. Don't want to see another high horsepower one need to be rebuilt.

What borescope do you have? That's the clearest borescope pictures I've seen.

Damn, your cylinders/pistons look a lot better than mine but your spark plugs not so much. It is weird how it's only on the one side of it. Do you have any misfires or smell gas every now and then?
