Re: Getting to the piston rings?!

You can't just fit rings. The bores will need to be checked and measured and they will also need to be honed at a minimum. Engine out is the only way to do this correctly. Also cams can stay in the head to remove it.

Re: Head Gasket or Cracked Block?

If you have oil mixing in the coolant then I'd look at the oil cooler first. There is only one point where high pressure oil goes through the head and that's near the oil pressure switch. The others are drains and would lead to water in the oil not the other way round.

Re: A/C Compressor

Rev 3 is 134A no conversion required.
Quite a few being broken so shouldn't have too much issue.
Try EBay. I'd think the turbo compressor will be the same.

Re: Braking issues

Yep the pads do have audible wear sensors.
Check the pads (inside pads too) could be a seized piston or slider.

Re: Fuel line replacement help

-6 sounds about right for the feed buddy. I always use TorquesUk on eBay for my braided hose etc. Quality is excellent and a lot cheaper than earls etc. 12mm banjo sounds right but I'll try and measure it to be sure. Use the PTFE hose too. It's better near heat and won't be affected by any fuel. Sen...

Re: Removing coolant flow to throttle body

Engine coolant temp is 80°+ deg c. Doubt the throttle body 'cools' the manifold. If the manifold gets to over 80° then there are other issues. The speed that air moves it doesn't pick up an awful lot of temp in general. You can run too cold and suffer with the fuel not atomising correctly. Sent from...

Re: rev3 head gasket fail or engine block crack

Ahh yeah. Any block can crack but I can't say I've heard of an NA one going. Not really. Would overheat quite badly but not really loose that much power

Re: rev3 head gasket fail or engine block crack

It is true. The gen 3 came with a multi layer steel (MLS) head gasket so failure is rare. When the block cracks it will tend to overheat on boost but be ok normally (my experience the twice it's happened) it will also eject a lot of coolant. Oil water mixing doesn't normally take place as the block ...
