damn hope itís a not anything severe that caused it

It was a JE head gasket that was being used and we found out that it is for sure a head gasket failure on cylinder 3. Not really sure what caused this but a new head gasket is going on, I guess it was a freak accident or something but the motor is going back together and will go back into the car.

im sure you checked to make sure to block was true? I would expect that a head from 4 piston would be done right. I found out my torque wrench was bad and clicking almost 30 lbs less than what it showed, I went and bought a nice digital scale one with warning beeps which allow much more accurate job on install. Think something like that could have happened where the head just didn’t get torqued fully?

Itís the JE proseal which is recommended for Darton sleeves as well, my motor is step decked and oringed. We are going to test cylinder 3 injectors just to make sure nothing is clogged and I just bought a new emap canister cause mine was getting clogged.

I was really looking forward to see this run last Sunday. The mishap on the other car was a bummer as well.

The injectors went out for testing and came back fine, I ordered some things for the harness to add a coolant pressure sensors and a wastegate position sensor. Just waiting for the motor to go back together and back in.

What sensor did you decide on using for coolant pressure?

All the sensors I use are from Locash Racing, they all say Locash Racing so I am not exactly sure who the real manufacturer is.

Been pretty busy working on another car I got from the auction but now that Iím done I got a little done on the race car. I built another breather catch can that will be sitting under the car where the stock fuel tank used to be. I had so much pressure that would build up I had oil push out of the catch can up front. Now I did do a bunch of restrictions on the catch can up front and havenít tested it but my buddy did the same thing I did and it stopped the issues we were having.

This will help a lot because the line will be about 10 feet so I can relieve the pressure and the cool thing is that it will vent out of the old gas filler neck.

Thanks man, it too me all but 20 minutes to get some cardboard and make a template, this one was a pretty easy setup, especially since it doesnít return to the motor.
