Did you check out this write-up in the Tech Section?

yeah I saw that but it didnt really help me with my 99.5. this line worked anyways, but im worried about the engine smoke. should it be like that?

I believe it's just supposed to blow out the exhaust, but I'm no expert. Sounds like you have a leak or crack?

thats what i was thinking. just took a look and i think the valve gasket is leaking some oil. hopefully thats it cuz that would be a cheap fix. thanks guys
