    Because the leak is so bad it coated the starter. And 162k is pretty high up on miles for a 22-23 lb tune. A couple grand to keep the block in 1 piece is not that bad.

    Definitely cheaper to leave a new block off the build list.

    Does it really work? Do you spray it on like Flex Seal?
    Honestly, if I looked at that on the shelf I would though thats what the "Buster used on his manifold", lol.

    Yes, works great. I used it when I had a leak on a trans pan. It kept it sealed for a few years until I replaced the gasket.

    I have a timing chain cover leak, could you re-link that product? I can't see the link on my end.

    Your adblock probably blocked the link, mine does that on this site too.

    Pistons from PD Tuning and rods from Graveyard Performance arrived this week. It's going to be a bit until installed but it's going to happen. And will hopefully be good to go for years to come.

    211.0 and 212.0? Or am I misremembering the zero after the decimal actually counting for something?

    Raider was probably putting glitter dick stickers in the shop instead of helping
