The Teal Terror passes emissions!

Woo hoo! The "Teal Terror" has passed emissions! When it failed the first time through, it spit out 395ppm of hydrocarbons, which exceeded Oregon's maximum of 220ppm. After a bunch of troubleshooting, a new oxygen sensor, reattaching a vacuum line that wasn't connected to the EGR modulator, and patching a leaky exhaust manifold with furnace cement (no joke), the Teal Terror blew 165ppm on the smog test. I did make sure the catalytic converter was well warmed up before bringing it through. So there you have it: I'm good until 2013.
