So we are 100% itís at least the head gasket so we pulled the motor.

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.

Yeah my buddy is using the same thing on his race car with no issues, it must have been bad luck.

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