During a momentary lapse of reason, I was attempting to dissect the DISA and broke it severely before I took any pictures. Sorry gang.
Good for you on changing the DISA. I pulled mine out to replace it and it looked fine so I'm sending the new one back. Good intel for me to note is you saw a drastic diff after 36k miles. I may make checking the DISA an every one or two year routine since I am at 95k right now. I just relocated to Seattle so I don't know what my annual mileage will look like out here.
