So fare ive done

New Disks and Pads all round
Put my lift from shorty in it with 25mm coil spaces lifted it about 1.5inchs over the 2inch that was in it.
Replaced the Control Arm bushes on chassie end
And put my 2.5inch exhaust and extractors from my shorty in the Mav just had to extend it about 3 foot just before rear diff sounds nice now.

Well last 2 days the Mav has been other steamy at its ass end seems it was sucking in my radiator water and spiting it out the exhaust

So had chat with couple people that all told me the same thing might be a crack in gasket.

So tonight ive ripped the head off only to see that the gasket at front of motor was all fucked and cracked looked to be leaking water into exhaust port one.

couple pics
