My indy suggested getting the valve cover changed at my next oil service. He mentioned the CCV, but I cannot recall what he said about it. I'm getting it done along with the thermostat and possibly water pump. Although it's a mechanical pump, I think I'll ask the tech if we should get it changed anyway.

I recently bought a Bluetooth dongle and have used the Torque Pro app in order to see the temps on the 35d. The temps hover around 160f-165f. So since I've been reading all past experiences and threads here on the forum, I decided to change it based on that.
