Spent this weekend working on my issues....

I added the baffles to the valve covers
Cleaned the exhaust valve
Replaced the exhaust gasket
Changed the spark plugs
Dumped the Synthetic and added Mobil 10w40 and some Mystery Oil
Also added 4 oz to the gas tank... I had about 10 gallons in there.

Started the car up and it smoked for a bit... While it was running I sprayed some carb spray down the carb and pcv hose, engine stumbled a bit...

Drove it for about 5 miles and it continued to smoke. I'm assuming it's the burning all the oil that is in my exhuast pipe and muffler....Q: How long do you guys estimate it will take to burn all that out?

I did however notice that the throttle is a bit more responsive and idle is smoother.... Not sure if this is the mystery oil in action or because of the baffle and clean exhaust valve...
