Default Too small of a MAF = blue smoke?

James said when he upgraded the fuel pump in the car that it started smoking heavily. Think it's coincidental and it's just the valve seals, or that the MAF could be related and it's just running pig rich?

i spoke with him at length one day on the phone and i asked him if its smoking between shifts and on startup. he said that yes it is. thats the exact symptom of valve seals. i just went out and bought the tool needed to do mine. i told him he shouldnt have skimped on that area.

yea if you saw my post on the other forums, I didnt want to lead the answer any there but I figured you/Cody would see it here. I'm pulling the head off and having those BC valves/retainers/Toga seals put on at the machine shop given they offer that with the lap/grind for $250 total. I cant believe after the money/time he put into the rest of the car that he skimped and put some oldass '97 100k+ heads back on this thing. So gonna put my dick in his beer when I visit him.

and as always thanks for following up. I think between me and James you've actually designed more of this car than we have. probably a good thing given our current levels of knowledge with this stuff
