It seemed worse cold and better at operating temp.

I have the trans out now as I am replacing the known clapped out converter since I bought the truck. While out I am replacing the gaskets at the manifold y pipes to turbo as there is traces of black around the gaskets. Unfortantly 3 of 4 bolts holding the pipes to turbo broke and had to cut the 4 bolts at the manifold. What a nightmare. Gonna look into deleting the ebv from the turbo while I am at work tomorrow as well.

I didn't see any large leaks or obvious other then the small amount of black off the y pipes. But the back of the pass head seemed to have alot of soot on it.
