Ok.gentlemen, 300 miles till the clutch is all broken in.

Please post a dyno place recommendations. I want to go next saturday.

I keep hearing that and some say the dyno is not dialed in correctly. I also would like to see whp not bhp if possible.

Any others??

I vote goodspeed as well, since its your first dyno, your only looking for AFR and boost for Bret to tune from. Your whp probably wont be what your expecting, although I would expect around 450.

Had an oil leak. Oil feed wasn't looking too good so I changed/rerouted with another. Went for a small test drive. Few minutes after I parked I saw every drop of coolant on the street.

Head gasket? I saw on forums that sometimes one of the hoses under the intake manifold leak or break if they are old. Anyone had this happen to them??

If you blew a head gasket the coolant will get into the oil. If you're seeing coolant all over the ground the most likely explanation is that you broke a coolant line somewhere.

In some cases boost will lift the head and cause combustion gas to push coolant out of the motor. I don't think this is your problem because you don't lose all of your coolant and the coolant loss happens pretty much right after you close the throttle.

Check your coolant lines, I'd be willing to bet you find the leak.

When you dump a bunch of coolant at once it's almost always a broken line or a loose clamp. I'm pretty confident you'll find the problem when you inspect the lines.

It was a combination of a leaking hose and gasket. had to take manifold and many things off to get to it but i am happy its not a HG

thanks for your help

Glad to hear you got it solved and it wasn't a head gasket.
