Hey guys, I know it's been a while but i'm back.
Got some bad news and really good news.
One my pony is really sick right now but on the mend so to speak.
Blew the right head gasket and started to burn coolant in the #1 and #3 cylinders.
I started to notice that i was going through some coolant, It took a little over a week to get low enough to turn on the dummy light, did that twice. started to look for leaks but found none so i put my coolant pressure tester on it and still no leak.
but as soon as i started her up she started to miss really bad and i realized, ( HEAD GASKET). so she's torn down now, heads are rebuilt and shaved to get rid of the gasket imprint. block was decked also. new bearings and seals all around plus new rings also. SO pretty much NEW motor. Saleenfiend I did break down and got long tube headers by PACESETTER with 3 inch collector and i'm going to run 3inch all the way back. Going to have to make my own H-pipe and i have a guy at work that will weld every thing together, will be in three pieces. H-PIPE , right and left cat back.
Now everyone i have a question about the head bolt torque.
Several different sources told me to wait 24 hours between torque to yield because of the multi layered head gaskets, other sources tell me to run the motor before the last torque to yield.
, any and all help would be great.
but anyhow great to be back.
