Unless its torqued down like less than 10ft/lb, I highly doubt simply tightening the connection will fix your issue. Sorry.

Umm if that is your reasoning no wonder you got leaks coming from everywhere. Why not entertain yourself for 10 mins and swap gaskets. Worse thing that'll happen is it'll work

Usually Once a gasket is compromised you're not gonna magically make it seal.

just broke in the cams for 20 min at 2000 rpm, going to drive around for a bit and change the oil. Need to get coolant plugs on turbo little more tight, AFR is good even though i got different turbo and different compression engine - AEM rock!

Cracked the sleeve from mid stroke up (closed decking only supports the top 1/4 inch of stock sleeve). Then crew member cranked motor after it was filled with water from crack. This caused crank to snap and bend rods.

This was not OFMS' fault nor was it bad BC parts. It was an OEM part that was overstressed by us in search of more track records (which we achieved BTW...). The rod/crank death was a result of cracked sleeve and then our crew member cranking motor when he shouldn't have. Oh well...

FWIW, any brand rod/crank would have failed in same manner if subjected to same mistake.

BTW CI, do you know the "popcorn trick"?

Thx for the link, hadn't actually seen that

I am a customer of AQ Motorsports and the owner of this car. They have always treated me right and do most of their work on the car for free. I do most of the work on car myself and bring it to AQ for things I can't handle at my home workshop. Wish I had a lift...

First they ship it ground instead of overnight, and this
P&L FPR steal leaks after changing the rubber seal WTF
Before when i took it apart everything was rusted inside, spring / spring holders i had to clean everything up. When i replaced the rubber seal i made sure everything was clean and surface was flat, i try to tighten it more and more nothing is helping, took it apart twise to make sure it was compressed correctly.


I demand overnight replacment

I've used Aeromotive, Mallory and now a Turbosmart with no issues...Have you contacted P&L directly to let them know of the issue? I ask as I'm almost certain they don't manufacture those in-house.
