Got it up on jacks and ready to do some maintenance tomorrow. First time doing any work in the new garage.

What's a cam bridge? I thought thread oil is a leaking valve cover gasket.
Same same but different. Our “valve cover” is also the top half of the camshaft bearing surface. You can’t just pop it off like other cars to reseal it without also doing a partial or full timing chain service.

Oh my. Then again doing the chain together with the gasket makes sense since it's recommended anyway.

Put the new PCV in today, torqued her to spec and everything is buttoned up and good. Butt dyno says healthier and happier. I took the opportunity to look at the plugs while I was in there, #1 had a little bit of oil in the bottom of the well, not even enough to saturate the bottom of the well completely. How much of a concern is this? The plugs were changed about 15,000 miles ago... considering pulling the plug and scoping the piston.

I couldn't get a clean photo of my plug, but I am uploading something I found online that looks pretty much exactly the same.
