The new engine is in the car and runing, seems to be doing well. I have a thread on clubgp for a few days and I am to lazy to write up another one so here is the link. LMK what you all think.

if you run into any overheating problems you're going to need to flip the gasket because with it on the wrong way one of your coolent passages is now smaller then it should be.

It seems to be running just fine even when it is really hot out. I am still debating on flipping the gasket though just to be safe.

it's a really nice build. I'd do it just to be on the safe side. how do you know coolent isn't slowing down there enough to turn to steam, creating a hot spot?
