In the mean time apparently my ccv hoses are brittle/falling appart so the shop has offered to change out the ccv for parts only, no additional labor since the hoses have to come off anyway throughout the process.
amazing op. you can get the entire ccv kit from tischer for 150 shipped btw. definitely a good thing to do when everything is disassembled anyways. your car is going to run like new
