Heavy Soot Accumulation
Although I've ditched the CAI reverted to stock and reset the computer one week (~900 miles) ago, I'm still getting a lot of heavy soot accumulating on the bumper and rear surfaces of my car...inside the exhaust pipes is caked with the crap.
This thing is either still running very rich, or it is somehow not burning all the fuel thrown at it (which is another way of saying it's running rich).
I called the dealer, who of course said off the bat that "If it were running rich, you'd have a check engine light."
"Trust me. It's burning fuel in the pipes. Why it hasn't thrown a code, I dunno."
So, I've an appointment on Tuesday so that they can throw the thing up on the racks to determine WTF.
This car is really beginning to frustrate the crap outta me.
