Weight loss bro.

I've got like 5 more track days this year to make it through. And then another 10 next year probably before I will have the 1.8 ready. This thing is a champ.

But then you don't get to see what blackstone writes when they get a sample that makes no sense. Their notes are usually so friendly and conversational.

I'm telling you, it's cast flashing from the block. I had a couple just like it. They were hanging on by a thread, and wouldn't show much if any evidence of breakaway. Clean it with brake cleaner, rinse it in water, and in a day or two it will be a bright orange rust. Cast rust color.

Did you ever take the pan off since you bought it from Martin? Or just the head

+1 on casting flash. I found this in my old engine a couple years ago:

WTF, why did it make my photo tiny?

Let's try this one:

OK, I don't understand what they've done to the forum.

lol seriously?

e: still works for me. Just have to put a ? after the file type so the perpetually broken, never-going-to-get-fixed uploader doesn't butcher it.

Ahh, yes. But then it doesn't rehost. Which I like, backups are good.

Seems like the rehosting is somehow broken.

A true B6 never knows when to die!

Mine has also been a real trucker while I've gotten my VVT swap ready.

I can't imagine you've done anything worse than when that engine was in laz. The rally cross was a swamp full of rocks. His friend Andy drove it into a ditch, and we did 2 seasons of track days on it.

I somehow doubt that IB's servers are more reliable than Imgur's servers, where all my images are hosted.

I like redundancy

I think its safe to assume its a chunk of block casting.

I'm not going to do anything about it. If this motor goes I'm done for a while. Don't have the time to do a rebuild myself, or the money to pay someone else.

I do. I've lost way too much content over the years to various free image hosts stitching to a paid model. When IB started hosting, that was a good thing.

Yay, it works. Stupid re-hoster.
