Hey John. I didn't say that the PCV hose and the VC gasket were related. What I said was that we determined that I have a leaky VC gasket. I've got oil in the wells, and oil dripping out the side. Most noticeably, it's leaking from the side with the timing belt. Therefore, we're pretty sure the timing belt will have to be replaced in the near future. However, if you're pretty sure that PCV hose is causing my launch issues, then I'll look into it. When I hear of a common problem, it's most likely going to be a culprit with my car.

As far as autocrossing goes, I'll have a talk with him when I'm ready for that. Thanks. I need to get the car running peak performance before I start riding her hard.
