A good cheap test to do, is to hook up a hand pump-up pressurizer with psi gauge onto the radiator. Pressurizing the coolant system with 15 to 20 psi for a few minutes will show if you have a crack somewhere.

yes i read what happened, but you fixed the hose and the problem still consists, you could have blown the gasket but i remember earlier on when you had problems of oil being in your intercooler. Thats what happens when you dont have a catch can??? If you don't already have a catch can i strongly suggest getting one to save your engine from more problems. You have a fully built turbo'ed car, a catch can should be recommended

I think you might of read something wrong. I never had oil in the coolant.

Just got the stage 2 ecu installed, it's Khmer night and day. When the clutch holds I break traction in 2nd.

and even without the clutch this thing is a beast in 1st through 3rd.

I'm actually thinking about putting the stock exhaust back on with different tips.

So I'm sorry for making this a shitty build but I'm sorta broke but its coming along.

As of now I have a couple of new things
m52tu block out of a 528
m54 head
new turbo
