Did you take it in specifically for the leak or having other work done and it was pointed out? I had a E350 that rear pinion leaked the 10 years I owned it. The fluid never even needed a top off. If...

Sounds like a good choice, I ran the 35-512-8, basically the same Cam just toned down a bit. Great power from idle on up and no drivability problems. Produces a bit less vacuum so occasionally I get...
