Hi Cole

How is your car coming along?

Red Locktite it is.

About the oil leaks. I am not too concerned about oil seeping out in various places. I have checked all the head studs they all look good. The rest is just normal, and a lot less than on my Carrera 3.0

What do worry me is the fact that when I removed the j-pipe on the exhaust. Oil came pouring out of it - not good.
How it got in there I don't know. The turbo may be shot due to the extreme heat because of way retarded timing and maybe by ingesting a part of the air injector from the number one cyl. - or what?
Before the happened the engine hardly burned any oil at all. Or smoke for that matter.
