Think I need to do head gaskets :(
So about 6 weeks ago i installed stage one injectors and had the chip reburned from Gearhead. I have started using coolant now since the injectors were installed. I pressured up the overflow bottle to 15 psi over the weekend. It only dropped 2.5 psi from Friday night until this morning. So i called Mate at Full Force this morning he told me to leave the cap of the overflow and power brake the truck. Put it under boost basically and see if coolant comes out of the overflow. So I fired it up and backed it out of the shop(cap was still off) I figured I would let it idle for 10 minutes and get warm before I did this. Well the truck idled for maybe 2 minutes and started spitting coolant from the overflow. So my question is this caused by something that I might have screwed up during the injector install. Everything went well with the install. Could it be related to tuning? I am not trying to toss Gearhead under the bus at all. The truck runs great and I am very happy with the way it drives. My final concern is that the oil appears to have metal in it
Alot of it is actually bubbles but it does seem to be a little metallic. Anybody have any tips on what I should do?
