Sounds like me, yeah. It seems when you disassemble something and put it back together the chance for things to leak goes up! Idk how factories do it so efficiently these days with low failure rates. Or maybe it's just bad luck. Or in my case maybe it's as simple as head surfaces.

I was gifted a copy of ATR yesterday by a certain tuner as well We'll see about getting it to work with my AP soon. I did more teardown over the weekend, just valve covers and valvetrain left til the heads are off.

Goddamnit.

Got the heads and components dropped off at UPS yesterday before we headed on the road to Denver.

I am so superstitious about my stuff arriving intact without damage. I packed the hell out of those packages, but I always worry too much about some asshole who mishandles people's shit - seems you always hear horror stories about the condition that things arrive in...

Goddamnit.

Been a while.

Colorado was a good time and good escape from the monotony that is Omaha. Got to hang with Jason for a while and saw his new place, which is awesome and has a nice chunk of property out in the quiet mountainscape. We also went to 3R Racing and I got to meet Rob, Chris, and Mark; all super-nice guys and totally unassuming - you'd never guess they're wheelmen. Was cool to shoot the shit with all of them and talk stories.

Seems IAG got my stuff and everything arrived with no damage, but have not heard back on anything done yet, I may ask on Friday. Everything is just sitting in the garage once again, still feeling like I'm never gonna drive it...

Goddamnit.

Some positives, the trip to Colorado at least.

Glad you got to come hang out. The closing date is pushed back another 2 weeks as they haven't assigned anyone to appraise the house yet...

Yeah, Robert, Chris, and Mark are good people and always willing to lend a hand. That shop is a little bit faster paced than anything you'll see in Nebraska.

Damn, more delays...what's new?

For sure, I can tell just by my short interactions with them. Knowing people like that is invaluable. And yeah, there's nothing like 3R here....sadly.

As for the car, [email protected] sent me these last night outta the blue:










Apparently the pitting in that last pic took 5 passes to remove! Waiting to hear back on how much the deck height changed as a result of that.

That looks solid

So, you might need to run a more beefy head gasket then?

Yes, but that's what I had installed in the first place. I'll be getting a new set from IAG again since the old ones can't be reused.

This tells all - the surface finish was too rough. In all honesty, it's a great thing that it leaked before you got the car running, it's easier to deal with. Glad to see it's a "simple," albeit costly (money and time) solution.

That pitting was there before the heads were even touched, however. I found that the first time I pulled everything apart. But yeah, easier to deal with. Just more time and $$$.

I'm hopeful to have it all back together quicker the second time around.
