I got everything taken care of. The CCV went in without major issue, with the DISA and alternator out there is a lot of room to mess with it, I could actually see the mounting screws!

The line from the CCV that rotates up into position through the manifold had me nervous, it felt like it could twist more, but it was in position and I could not tug it off and everything connected in place.

I cleaned out the Throttle Body & Idle Control Valve with some Sea Foam Deep Creep.

Put everything back together and fired her up, no error codes or any issues at all.

Got the snow tires on just in time for the snowfall here in Minnesota...took it out for a quick spin

I'm a bit nervous about any dirt that may have fallen into the oil pan when I pulled the dipstick tube. Debating an oil change but I did it a couple thousand miles ago. I dunno.
