Sure…. It’s kind of like taking a single horse & carriage and adding another horse. Now you have 2 horses, doubling the horsepower to pulling a single carriage. That’s a mild mod.So nearly doubling the horsepower of a stock engine is considered a "mild" modification?
This. Before assuming the worst, check the easy/cheap stuff.could be a bad oil cooler
Really. What does antifreeze do to them?Not really sure that would really matter in the long run. Really should tear the engine down and replace all the bearings as antifreeze is not known for being kind to them.
Is that a serious question?Really. What does antifreeze do to them?
Take the emotion out of your responses and answer the question.Is that a serious question?
You're mixing oil and water to form a froth that flows very poorly then putting it between bearings spinning thousands of times a minute under extreme pressure and you think they would survive without damage?
Let me ask you this. If your stock engine lost an oil cooler like this would you be happy if they replaced it and simply did an oil flush/change?
I'd bet not...
I guess it depends on how long hes been running around with milky oil. A few hours? Nope, wouldn't cross my mind. Repair oil cooler and move on.Scores them. Not to mention doing the same thing to the crank and cams.
And you didn't answer my question.
Would you be happy with that repair?
Especially when they drop ass while they are pulling you.Sure…. It’s kind of like taking a single horse & carriage and adding another horse. Now you have 2 horses, doubling the horsepower to pulling a single carriage. That’s a mild mod.
Now take the same carriage, add 11 more horses to it… so now there’s 12 horses pulling a single carriage, but add a little ghost pepper to their oats…. That’s an extreme mod.
ya, that's very true. my roomie in college and I had head gasket swaps down to about 3-4hrs in a college apartment garage with low lighting and basic hand tools. we did a LOT of them on his car, he ended up needing to get his heads decked - he'd had the stockers ported and the machine shop did some crappy work. The port work/valve job was quite nice but they didn't do so hot on squaring it up, took a bit to diagnose and on a college budget it was easier to replace the gaskets every month than to be without the car for a few weeks while getting machine work scheduled. hahaha ah those college days man!!! fun funTo be fair it's way easier to do head gaskets on a cast iron pushrod motor versus these massive hunks of aluminum lol
