  1. WELP.. Looks like you were correct. Overheated...

    WELP.. Looks like you were correct. Overheated and coolant everywhere.... So.... what's the step of head gasket on this guy? Any upgrades while it's out and apart? 36mm turbo? BOV? Suggestions?

    I pulled the map sensor off and it was "wet" which I assume it's not suppose to have any fluid in the intake tract. Not sure where the residue would be coming from.. PERHAPS... coolant was drawn in...

    AHhh... that makes sense.. There's a coolant leak... so perhaps they tried to add something... BUT... i found the leak.. it's the couplers going to the oil cooler.. That has popped off. Looks like...

    I've had booster packs hooked up.. There's spark, but it's just not firing up. I haven't touched it in awhile.. It'll be a winter project now. Seems like it's getting over flooded. So will probably...

    FAIR answer, but why are the other 2 different than that cylinder? I just want to make sure or find out if there's something I need to be aware of. That machine seemed to be running fine until I...

    I believe you're referring to the crankshaft... those bearings will need some fancy tools and a hydraulic press to remove and change. It's definitely not for the regular DIY project. I just had mine...

    Is there any easier way to pull the pump from a Virage TXi since the tank sits in the middle? Of course my tank was more than half full... making it very difficult to pull forward. I unbolted the...

    Yes... correct... MAG piston at the top and flywheel marks on the top.

    I guess I can pull the flywheel off and take a look at the key.
