Hi Friends,

My down town trip ended on a trailer that has taken me to the service with lots and lots of oil in my cooling system.

So this means engine will be parted out and be re assambled (hopefully), which means I'll be have to start the turbo project.

I'll inform you frequently about how it goes on and will ask lots of questions as well.

http://bmwturbos.scottiesharpe.com/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=5108 link is to remaind the car I have.

wish me good luck ;)

Engine has been taken out yesterday and parted out. The prob┼čem seems to be with the engine block.

It has been surface cleaned before (with the old owner) but the job is not well done; we have realised that the first cylinder area was cleaned some more than the remaining. so it will again have a surface clean.

For the internals I have JE 8.0:1 forgeds + rings with stock rods and cranck and metric mechanic cranck and rod bearings.

Any advices will be highly appreciated.

Thanks,
Kerem

The bores look clean....too clean. Did you discover what was wrong? Did the headgasket die?

bores are new too :) engine became so new that it will be a project car for my son too I think :)))

Actually there was nothing wrong with the headgasket. The surface clean on the block was not done perfectly. the area that has water vessel and oil vessel near the first cylnder was cleaned a little bit more. so even if the head bolts were tightened perfectly head was not pressing the gasket as much as needed at the regarded area.

Thought you weren't supposed to use the m30 exhaust gaskets for the turbo manifold?

I used the stock gaskets briefly before I changed my head gasket. Currently, I've coated the squished stock 745i gaskets with some high temp RTV (the red stuff) because I was too cheap to buy new rings. So far, I have no exhaust leaks.
