Nope, she went back with the cheapest felpro phenolic she could find.

KISS got me.. And on to the misfire.. pulled the plugs, cheap autolite plats, #3 wet with gas. Gaps bad, ceramic a dark brown/almost black. Could have sworn I tuned it up when we got it, but no.. and #3 wire is dead, can't even get a blip twisting/shaking/etc with meter attached.

Got the intake installed, ran paper thin ultra blue around the coolant ports, they were very pitted, ultra grey across the valley lip. New driver's plugs and wires done, have to do pass tomorrow, change the oil, then flush the cooling system. Hopefully that's it.

Seeing all that sludge, tempted to run sea foam or some cleaner through it, but figure that might do more damage than good.
