But I do like Modelo. Right now I've got a Negra Modelo. Dark Ale.
qft

My FIL turned me onto this savory Mexican beer (the dark one). Goes well with a meal.

You gotta clean that system out with pressure, my friend. Get yourself to a shop and tell them to flush that bitch. And DON'T USE TAP WATER or you're just going to **** yourself in the *** with both fists.

A friend had one that didn't leak during normal running, but at high boost the gasket would not hold the cylinder pressure and would over-pressurize the cooling system and blow out through the radiator cap and into the overflow. There was no steam in the exhaust, no water in the oil, just coolant blowing out of the radiator cap during high boost runs.


EDIT: I like Negra Modelo pretty well.
