      IDIBRONCO replied to the thread Piston cracks.
      It wasn't mentioned, but judging by the anodizing on the tops of the pistons, I'm assuming that this is a Factory Turbo engine. These...

      Maybe you have to buy the pistons from Mahle? I'm not sure. Rock Auto lists rings though. They list pistons and rings as a set, but...

      For what it's worth, ugly paint doesn't hurt. Plus it doesn't cost very much either. :joker:

      With the abuse that our pistons have to take, even on a N/A engine, that's not good. Put a turbo on it, and it only gets worse. I...

      IDIBRONCO replied to the thread Oil leak source?.

      IDIBRONCO replied to the thread Oil leak source?.
      I noticed that too. It looks like oil is sitting on top of the nut. It would be a place to keep an eye on. Here's my thought. Yes oil...
