There is a built in seal that goes bad. If the fuel,air , vacuum are good the 1100 runs great. I would buy an oem CO pot aka "idle regulating valve" as used on the non-cat version 1100 before spending money on f.i. modifier. The rubber seal in the TB that surrounds the f.i. is probably leaking. Would go through the entire fuel prep and delivery system. TBs might need rebuild.
Thanks vintagerider. I got a deal on the techlusion so I did buy one. I have not replaced any intake parts, but I checked the TBs and vicinity for leaks using both propane and WD40 but didn't seem to be any... I will take another look with special attention to the seal arounf the fuel injector. The "tecillusion" is still unopened so could return it, I'm sure.

What is GL5? And are you syaing straight 90 weight, not 80w90? I chose Redline Shockproof because I read that it might spooth up the shifting a bit...it hasn't really.
