BCZ UR DUM.







SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, FUCK NEONS. Coolant in cyl #4 :'( so much that it's perfectly clean, hasn't even fired.

Either head isn't torqued down properly, it's not flat, or it's cracked somewhere. Can't mill it down any more than it already is either. My mag head (that I had pretty much just sold) was sent off to the machine shop today. Gonna get a mild (gasket matched) port done, swap over everything from the current head (minus +1mm OS valves).

Mo' money, and another week of waiting :(

Image

Side note.. my car actually used to look pretty damn clean. DAFUQ did I do?

mite not have been torqued properly with the arp head studs? I know mls head gaskets need a really clean surface. I had to get my race ported 2L head resurfaced to seal good under boost ... the guy that I have that does my machine work an my dads race car said its a must to have the surface like glass he built the CSCS motor of Mel at Tag Racecrafts to beat the record for fastest canadain import in a S2000 motor with 40psi boost.

Everything seems to be running fine, which is nice to finally see. Throwing two codes right now for IAC and TPS, can't figure out why. TPS was swapped out for another one and it didn't change anything.

Looks like I won't be getting a tune until next week anyways. Also, losing the car I've been driving for the past 3 weeks. Public transportation... :|

I hate cars.

:D

So, it's a really shitty pic, but it's all I have for now.

Image

I had to drive my car from my buddy's place (where it was built), to my tuner's place. Roughly a 2 hour drive over 188km (117 miles). I drove it like a little bitch, making sure my car came no where near boost :rofl:

As long as everything goes well, I'll be picking it up after work later tonight. :):):):)
