So heres my car

What you dont see is the multiple fluids leaking, or trying to watch me go up a hill in the rain. Oh the joys of an open diff...

So heres the plan. 3.23 LSD acquired. And cleaned....halfassish.

Heres what I started with tonight

Kind of janky. ANyone else notice the giant splash of oil on the fireproofing and all over the top of the engine? I am determined to figure out what dafuq it is.

Heres something interesting. This is where I hook to my CCV on the VCG... it looked wet. I know its not the oil cap nor VCG, and since I know the leak is from the top, I'm gonna keep this in mind as a potential leak

More oil, on the lip of the VC by the injector rail

Add more to the confusion, this is by the OFH. Its dry

And this is how I end my night

Lots to do...

RIP Ben "Jever" Doebele, we wont forget you
