I'm torn between being totally irresponsible with money and the thought that the first time I drive this car screws will be eaten and a third engine will need to come out of the car. Which is more reasonable?

...because I like to see you squirm. How's the fissure holding up?

Torn between wasting money?

Duuude

I've never seen anyone waste so much money with such little result. Well, that is except Faeflora lolol

But seriously, I feel for you. You keep trying to do everything 100% and not cut corners, yet somehow have the worst luck known to man (or so it seems). People are tracking bone stock cars for years yet you manage to destroy built engines.

I think at this point if you "think" your tb will fail you should replace it. Or at the very least use epoxy like these guys are tellin you

you're an idiot for not getting your roadstersport for half price from yours truly. I would have thrown in a short rib and kale.

In Hustler's defense - tracking a street-driven car at or sub-SM lap times and putting around a track like a sightseer are not really equal in terms of part destruction.

I certainly rule.

I've had some pretty shitty luck this year.

Is this some sweet technique to give your coolant reroute some breathing room?

Again, back to the BEGi reroute. I had to hammer the fire-wall because the spacer is either too thick or the Kia waterneck is too thick. Then, the bolts won't go into the head, so I ad to convert to shorter studs. Then, the CLT sensor doesn't seal, so that had to get filled with epoxy. Working back there is a real pleasure.

They're 5/16 flare-adapters. I should have done tube-nuts. Everything else is Mocal from BatInc.

So I'm trading my SS valve, ST spring 99 head with two days on it for a spare VVT head plus cheddar. I'm getting my original VVT head surfaced, taking it home and installing ST single springs, then running sea-foam through it. Hopefully this works-out.
