I would say mine moves about 1-3mm when idling. I guess it was unusual for me to see it move as my hydro didn't do it...

Tensioner is bad if there is too much slack in the belt or if the pulley doesn't turn freely. I'd also check your other pulleys to see if they spin freely...that can cause the tensioner to move excessively.

Swap plugs today and saw Plug 6 was DAMP The new Plugs I swapped in is NGK 4091 non resistor type plug and heat range is 7. The Connections on the Coils is Fine and the ground as well. I will have to recheck the seat on the DME and Injectors as well.

Is it possible you are willing to post dollars per hp when this thread is done? It's great to get an idea of what hp is costing the community! It would be great information on the topic of what mods are the best bang for your buck!

After, I get my New Valve Body for the Tranny, New Tranny Software, 3" Custom Exhaust with Cut-Outs and install my M3 rear end. I have to do some minor mods and the s/c install will be complete and hopefully running well. Parts should be here Wednesday.
