      Nearly all catalytic converters will make the egg smell in certain driving scenarios.
      The smell doesn't mean they're bad either, that is a common misconception.

      Buy the Ecs tuning fix kit, or replace the manifold.
      If you have the early revision manifold, it will fail at some point. It can leave you stranded depending on how it fails....

      From what I understand, they have more windings which will increase resistance on the secondary circuit. This will increase the spark. I have never verified this with a ohm meter though.

      CBFA should be the same. The accessories may be different depending on the model, but the engine should be the same.

      Well if you don't have any vacuum at the pump, you would likely have issues with the brake pedal as well. If this is the case, then you need to either rebuild it again or replace it. But honestly,...

      Did you loose one of the pieces inside when you pulled the vacuum pump cover? Or put them in wrong? Or possibly pinch the o-ring when going back together.

      This is all I can think of. I've rebuilt...

      As far as I know, the fuel rail is the same with the new revision manifold. I've done lots of intake replacements and never had to replace the rail.

      by stage 2, I mean the ECU has had the software changed to make it faster. But honestly if you aren't familiar with it, I'd recommend a stock ecu.
      If the wiring does check good and the knock sensor...

      Alldata is where I got the info. I just couldn't post pictures as it was a work computer.
