Hey guys, its been awhile...
Well i got an issue....Car has been getting horrible has mileage. Went to start the car tonight,wouldn't start...sweet eh? well i got a strong odor of fuel, noticed it was coming out of my CAI. Took it apart, opened the butterfly valve on the TB. Gas pooled out, I mean a ton....any idea what this is from?:iconfused I do have an adjustable fuel pressure regulator. I dont know if thats bad or what...but input would be great!

if you have an aftermarket regulator and its not set right it might be pouring all the excess id look into that first how long has the regulator been on the car?

because the vacuum line for the FPR is right behind the throttle body.

So when i replace it...ill have to get new plugs and do an oil change right?

Maybe. Pull the plugs and check them, and pull the dipstick and smell it for fuel. You may not have to change anything else out.
