Long story of one thing after another going wrong. It's a damn good thing I have a machine shop to fab stuff.  :nw  I'll fill you guys in when we meet up BUT,IF no other gremlins pop up I'll have it there with the 360 bolted back together. Big motor will not be ready.  Hope the repairs hold on the 360. Only have enough e85 at the dunes for 2-3 good runs but some seat time in it is better than none.

after spending several hrs fishing the rest of the stud out of my exh manifold for the turbo...... every thing is back together and seems to be running good. used that rtv copper gasket maker to seal the manifold. it had 4 days to cure before start up so we'll see how it does on this trip.   

glad to hear your bringing the beast. you'll get the other motor in once it's sorted out.

It is kick ass isn't it!! It's one of those tools that you look at and say why would I ever need something like that.Until you have it that is. Then you say I don't know how I ever got along without it.

Unless your turbo header flange goes over 700ish degrees you will be golden.No gasket at all will seal better than the gaskets you have been using.  ;)

Speaking of fishing crap out of engines I have a tale about that as well. This damn thing has fought me tooth and claw. Oh well,life is good otherwise. :m

well the head rarely sees 210* as coolant capacity is fantastic. not sure on the flange, never checked it. i do know the end of the header will turn red some times just like the exh housing.
