    put UV dye in , idle for 10 min then rev to 1200 rpm...noticed the oil catch can emitting light smoke , exhaust has slight smoke too, perhaps from UV dye. Drove it back and forth a few times and then checked catch can and noticed oil droplets by the vents . That was cleaned prior to testing. Noticed slight oil on lower control arm and inner wheel. pulleys and belt clean.

    I just spoke with MarkS at TMI. They no longer carry the dipstick tube for the Ecotec (LSJ).
    I did some quick research and found the part number for the Chevy part. It's $25 at the local dealership. (part# 12583153)
    I'll update the thread once I've got it in hand and have replaced the old one.

    It's going to have to be bent, I'm pretty sure

    The LSJ part was the wrong length (and the wrong bend)

    I had the original one welded and it seem to work fine for now. Won't really know until it's on the track again.
    Does anyone know what fixes were made to the later version of it?
