Re: Everything is OK again - Still boosted! (Pg 81) - The Speedfoos' Turbo Thread!!

The only way I noticed something was wrong was when I pulled the coil packs to check the head bolts, and saw all the oil. I think the seals just failed from a combination of excess heat from the turbo, some degradation during the powder coating process that I had done on it, and simple poor design. The ones I have in there now are a much tighter seal around the plug tubes.

It's amazing how fast things break on a turbo'd car!

Could be George! But I know you'll be claiming your T.E.A.R.S. member number shortly after (or during) your install even with Justin's help!!

No kidding Ben! I've learned a bazillion things about my car during and after this install!

Actually I think Hector kept popping head gaskets too, but he's got a fully built gut (lots of beer), plus sleeves, rods and pistons and kept blowing them until he put in a block guard.

I did some aggressive driving on the way home from work today, so we'll see if I pushed any coolant back into the rezzie tomorrow morning. Either way, I think I'll replace the HG tomorrow. I've got a couple guys coming and I promised them beer and grilled meat if they would take pictures for a DIY and hand me tools!

Thanks Richard! I just came back from the pub after a few games of after work basketball. Man even though it was half-court (refabbing the gym) it still kicked my ***!

I'll just put this out there, any civicforums members that ever find themselves in England are always welcome at Chez' Foos for beer and food. Not that I ever expect to meet any of you mugs until I come back to the states, but I just wanted to extend the open invitation.

Hmm if I had the money for the plane ticket I would take you up on that offer.
The best part would be I would not have to pay for lodging because my dad owns a house in Margate (next to Ramsgate) my grandma lives there.
When do you leave the UK?

I'm on it Matt. PM me some pics (I'm lazy), some color prefs and anything else you want in it and I'll bang something out tonight.

My DEROS is next October! So yeah, it won't be for another year. I have no idea where Margate or Ramsgate is.

The Army will pay to ship one vehicle back to the states Varner. Anymore than that and it's out of my pocket - which is about $1000. Needless to say, my wife's Blazer will be sold locally before we leave next year and we'll buy something and have it waiting for us where ever we end up.

How do you like the 11lb flywheel? And do you think it would be good for a daily driver

p.s.
that would be great if you did a HG replace DIY. It would save me alot of money.

www.s10forum.com

i used to own an 01 s10 but it was a gutless 2.2l.
seriously gotta check out that site it will solve your headaches
check out this sc'd 4.3l

Good stuff man! I will chock this up to forum number six that I am now a member of! Although I'm probably just going to lurk on that one and sponge information off of it. I already got one good piece and that's how to change the #3 plug that's been on there for the life of the truck. I definitely appreciate it. You deserve a virtual beer on the house!

Some creeper called his wife hot and he blew another head gasket (the two events where in no way linked together). HG replaced and boost lowered to 8psi for the time being?

I think.
