I just happen to read a few of the replies in the thread on page 2, and the sealing surface of the intake makes perfect sense too. I've read were some would make a hard turn right and blow blue smoke, but turning hard left, wouldn't. Just so happens that the intake sealing surface wasn't enough and allowed for a slight leak that would manifest itself when making a hard right turn...Weird... But I try to look at both sides of the problem versus head-banging the problem and not making any headway.
