I was playing with AlfaODB to see if I remembered how to use it. I started the car and it idled unsteadily like it was going to stall then all of a sudden it had a cough and started to run properly. I'm wondering if the PCV valve was sticking after the car sat for weeks. I'll try to take it for a run today to see if it behaves better. Might just buy a AOS/PCV valve to have in the garage (just in case).

The saga of the PCV got worse. The car basically threw oil out of the dipstick tube. After cleaning the AOS and replacing the PCV valve it seems much happier, at least the oil is staying in the car. I should rerun the last tests but I sort of want to leave the car alone until after the Twisted 2020 weekend that is coming up.
