I hope you're not saying this isn't possible. Maybe its not happening here, but it is a real possibility.

With your 01 head gasket? If so you have impending doom. You need to put the 94-00 head gasket (BP26-10-271) onto the car or take off the reroute - your front cylinders will be seeing very little coolant.

But I have a water temp sensor in the front and back of the head and they match readings? I guess that's different than cylinder temp readings.

Please someone confirm this. I really don't want to take apart my engine.
