Injector O-rings and Intercooler Seal

I replaced I injector o-rings this weekend, to try and rid myself of vanishing oil and poor fuel mileage(2qts.of oil in 500 miles and milage decrease of 16mpg down to 10mpg) And during the tear down I found the seal/o-ring at the turbo to intercooler pipe was missing the bottom 3rd or it. Can the bad seal be the sorce of my poor economey? I do belive it could be but that is a big reduction without a noticible loss in power. I also did the HPX and CCK mods. All I can say is WOW that sure made a noticable difference.

I'm not exactly sure what you're talking about but if it's what I think you're talking about then yes... it could create a boost leak which would rob power and economy. However I don't understand why you'd take the spider off to do injector O rings


Also what is the CCK mod? Mistype and you meant the CCV mod?

I'm more interested in this CCK... never heard of it.

Cackle is associated with the #8 injector (rear passenger driver side inj) and people usually do the crossover line or a fuel system to reduce it or cure it.
