      Good idea groggory. I was wondering what else I should possibly do while I'm getting this work done. It would be nice to get a few more HP after getting this sealed up right again! I'm currently...

      I'm looking into the same question. I have a problem with an exhaust manifold connection leak that can be seen here.
      I searched around a little for the best gasket kit to ensure I'm proactively...

      Hey groggory, appreciate the feedback but I've decided to just leave it be for now and get it properly repaired within the next month. I'm going to have a shop do the repairs and do my turbo gasket...

      Cool. Thanks for the reply. I figure if it can handle the high temperatures coming out from that area it might help. In the event it doesn't help it probably won't make a mess will it? Thx for the...

      Hi groggory, Do you think this paste would work for my exhaust leak issue that you replied to here? If this could seal up my leak I might want to give it a try. However, I'd rather not do a band-aid...

      Great, thanks for this info groggory. I'll probably consider getting some new nuts and re torquing them down to see if that corrects the leak. The only one that might be difficult to get to is the...

      Bump, no ideas on this one? So far one of my mechanics quoted me $420 to replace the gasket.
      Thanks for any ideas or suggestions.

      Exhaust Manifold Connection leak

      I'm having an issue with a slight leak on one side of my exhaust manifold. I'm not really loosing any boost but you can hear it and definitely feel the heat coming out. I took a few pictures of the...

      Cool. I've heard good things about Gonzo tunes! I'll have to do some more research. Do you work with any shops in Colorado Springs or Colorado that can assist with the tuning download/upload? I have...

      I'm not claiming to be a very good mechanic either but I've done a fair amount of things to feel somewhat confident in my abilities. I'm pretty sure they would lend you a compression gauge. I have...

      Hi, I noticed the current price of this is at $199. I was curious if I could expect the 1-3 advertised psi gain if I installed this on my car? The main thing I wanted to know if this will work in...
