I think I should be able to make the february one.
Car is in no way a show quality car (I like to think of it as a 10' car, good from 10' away), but I'll polish it up anyway.

At the end of the day we would love to see any car wether between build or even on a trailers. Don't be discouraged from coming even if it is a rat car come anyway the bigger the better.
My crew is even bringing the apprentice's jet ski. Stuff it I'll even try bring the dog, at the end of the day it's a car show come show your face have fun and get along isn't that what its all about!

Well I started cleaning my engine bay earlier this week, bit of painting parts, claying existing paint and removing/relocating extraneous parts.

I also installed a new boost valve which is being controlled by my computer instead of the existing bleed valve. Few runs with the new setup and it was building/holding boost very steadily. It was a quick run and I got it home about 30 seconds after the last kickdown. I tell you all this because I open the bonnet and see this

The gasket was on it's way out as I had noticed a bit of weeping at the front of the engine for a while, but still annoying. I had planned on pulling the engine out and pulling it down for a look (Previous owner did the rebuild but I don't know the state of the engine). However I wasn't going to do that until I got my shed built (won't be until ~ April). So all that was to say I probably won't be making the February show. If I pull the engine down before Feb, I don't think I will be able to stop at a simple head gasket, I will end up getting the while I am at it fever.

So you played with your boost and suddenly you've got oil all over your block "down wind" of you dipstick tube (which is missing?). My diagnosis from those two pics would be a restricted crank case breathing system causing a build up of pressure, causing your oil dip stick to pop out and spray oil everywhere. Now it's either missing and you haven't noticed or you've removed it, but all they generally do is pop the seal and still sit there but with oil dripping out.

Far better news than a head gasket if I'm right.

Actually not quite right.
The boost did not go above 14 pound (which is what I had it tuned for and is much better controlled then the previous bleed valve, I have logging on the computer so can see how the boost reacted).

I took the oil dipstick out to see how much oil I had and to get a clearer photo.
Definitely leaking from head (although I hate to say it).

The other issue here is the five cylinder modification.
Audi, Volvo and Ford(Focus Turbo) have proved it works, It may not be the case with Nissan, yet, but persevere!

Sorry couldn't resist,
But, look at releiving the rocker cover air pressure build up, as the drainbacks to engine are pretty small, and the crankcase breather is also quite restricted, especially if it wasn't removed and cleaned thouroghly ( gauze pack) at last engine rebuild.
Worst case scenario is it could be head gasket, but I doubt this, as the main oil gallery feed from block to head is between No 3 and 4, this pic is showing weep around five!
I drill them out a little( oil restrictor plug at block deck surface) to give better oil delivery/volume to upper end, but, pay attention to oil return into block, and, oil pressure from pump.

is there any other head gasket symptoms, oil in water, water in oil. either into combustion chamber??? seems strange to just have oil weeping externally from the head flange.

No oil in the water, no water in the oil. Haven't had a chance to pull the plugs to see if oil in combustion chambers (Away from car for few days), it was also running really well so wouldn't have caught it if I didn't pop the bonnet. I did catch it within 30 seconds though. I am hoping it is just a really bad leak, HA! Got to live in hope. It has been weeping for a while, but this time a fair bit of oil came out from the other end of the block.

Might be a few heading off to Warwick  to Morgan Park racing circuit. HRCC qld is running a test and tune on the Saturday, and Supersprints on the Sunday on 27 and 28 march.
Thats if you are keen to actually drive a car on the track legally and quickly, rather than showing a car statically.
check out events page on hrcc dot org dot au.

Hey Guys,

Since a few of us are already heading to the classic Japanese I was thinking we should meet up for some beers around lunch time. So far Shaun says he's keen. Anyone else?

My number is 04!^ *!) ()^
