      Maxpowerz, Thanks for the suggestion. However, I've decided to just have the shop do this repair.

      Thanks for this info. The shop that quoted me $392 for the thermostat quoted me $210 for parts and Labor to do the coolant flange. Seems a little expensive to me so I might call a few more shops.

    5. Leaking coolant flange. Cost for repairs?

      I've had this leak for about the last 3 months now. It's getting worse and I have to top it off once or twice a week now. Here's a few pictures of my leak.

      Sorry to hear this. I've been a big fan of DATR and attended about 3 of them. I always had a good time and was impressed with the turnout and activities. Looking forward to next year.....

      I'm not going to argue anything at this point. Doug is taking care of this issue and providing new studs,etc at no charge! I'm looking forward to getting my leak fixed and moving on.

      Nobody has an input for me? Somebody has to have broken these off and had them repaired?

    12. Shop broke Turbo manifold stud(s) while doing maintenance on my car

      I got a rather frustrating call from the shop working on my car today and I'm a little concerned about how good the "fix" will be.

      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.

      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...

      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...
