What one's mike again?

Didn't include Corey cause I never see him anymore and his engines about equal with where I'm at and he's got no suspension work or weight reduction.

No it didn't. Not sure, I feel/hear it around cylinder 1. I am going to do some more inspecting and get her on a lift wednesday. I'm going to pressure wash the engine bay and get rid of all the oil to see where it's coming from.

Valve cover gasket is brand new, plus there is hardly anything in my catch can.

Oil pan is junk, Vanos oil line is wet, not sure how bad it leaks though. Next will be the oil filter housing. Not sure what to do after that.

Thanks man.

False alarm though, there is a minor, very minor leak at cylinder 1/2, but there major leak is more interesting.

Only 1 of 4 turbo to manifold bolts were tight!!

One fell completely out

So I took off my exhaust and checked everything out. Have to get a gasket tomorrow and some nuts and she'll be good to go!

loctite wont hold up to that kind of heat. you need locking washers on that piece, those washers that have a cut in them, that should do the trick.

I have a recurring problem called lymphedema in my left leg. Mine was caused by many past injuries to my leg. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lymphedema
Very painful, and I can't do anything except sit with my leg up and take antibiotics and pain meds until the flare-up is over, 2-4 weeks, sometimes longer. It can be life-threatening if untreated. I've had it for years. All it takes is a good bump on my leg to set it off. That's what happens about three weeks ago.

Sorry for dumping this in your build thread, Matt.

Don't worry about it man

Sorry to hear though, so there's no cure or anything?

Treatment only, no cure. My vascular surgeon told me he wished there was something he could to to fix it, but he can't.....and he's one of the best in the country. Biggest danger is infection (what I have now). I try not to get bummed out about it. Being able to drive again will help. Soon, I hope.

uuuuuuuuuuuh,

I just don't know how to respond to that....except to say you can get lymphedema in ANY bodily extremity, including that one. Think about that. NO THANKS.









Dang, Matt, I shoulda made a "Ken's infected leg" thread instead of screwing up your build thread. Apologies again, man. /discussion, please! I appreciate the concern.
