...in my driveway!!!
Don't know if anyone followed my short thread in the problems forum, but I had noticed the infamous tea kettle noise and spotted bubbles in my degas bottle a few weeks back. After some investigation, I brought in into my Ford dealer and had a recommended master tech confirm that the gaskets were toasted.
On Friday I dropped it off to him with new ARPs and a River City EGR delete I found on Craigslist (ended up that it was my neighbor selling it). He started in on Friday and was done today! He also found a cut O-ring on the camshaft position sensor (leaking oil), an almost hole in a radiator hose rubbing against the steering box, a clamp rubbing against the belt, as well as updated the STC fitting, dummy plugs/standpipes, HPOP screen, and return/feed lines.
Believe it or not, the heads checked out okay after magnaflux and were cleaned/decked as well. Very good job by the tech, I would also recommend him in a heartbeat to anyone near the Lafayette IN area.
Matt @ Gearhead has been contacted and a SRL tune package is on its way to me as well as a coolant filter setup from Performance Machine! Glad shes done and this hopefully will be behind me for a long time if not forever...
