Cyl 1 - 155
Cyl 2 - 155
Cyl 3 - 105
Cyl 4 - 105
Cyl 5 - 155
Cyl 6 - 155

Cyl 1 & 2 look wet with oil, but smell like coolant. Cyl's 3-6 are dry.

Isnt that just fukin great.

Half of me wants to fix the car, somehow locate another head and go at it again.

And the other half of me is pissed off @ the car.

I dont know what to do.

Just thought I'd vent here, since this is the Supra family

The good news is, with the new plugs she still boosts and pulls hard, ha.

Sorry to hear. Hope you got some miles out of it before this. Good luck with whatever you decide to do.

is it overheating or anything?

Before you plunge into the rebuild...

I have seen similar numbers on our cars that do the test with the throttle body closed
You must keep the throttle body open and all spark plugs removed when doing a compression test

I agree, I'm pretty sure this was the problem. On the highway coming from Miami going to Orlando I blew a top radiator hose as well, so that one overheat didn’t help much either I suppose.

I just need to grow up and stop blaming the car.

Now that I’ve had time to cool off and think things over, I'm obviously going to fix the problem. I cant just throw away all the time, money, sweat, and blood down the drain.

I made the mistake of not writing the correct torque specs on the technicians forehead, so had I been on the ball, it wouldn’t have happened. I was just hoping for the best.
You can always sell me your car I love your car LONG time!
:D Well, I guess she's worth keeping, be a cold day in hell before I'd ever seriously sell her.

Thanks for the heads up, I did however have the throttle @ 100% and all the plugs out already :(

I plan on picking up a used head locally, and hopefully if things work out, its never been resurfaced. I then plan on going with a HKS stopper.

One question though, I'm pretty sure its ok to re-use my ARP bolts, but do I need that special lubricant this go around to get the correct torque spec reading, and if so, what can I use in place of the ARP lube that came with it?

Thanks for listening to my crying. Thankfully she's still a beast, Had I not done the test, I wouldn’t have guessed anything wrong with her :D

Arp has really good customer service. I guarantee you that if you call them and tell them your box was missing the lube, they will send it free!lol. Trust me ive done it. Using the lube and head studs arp recommends 84 ft/lb. and thats what i did.

Well, maybe I'll go that route, but just in case, anyone know if there is a suitable substitute?

Bolts or studs? I have bolts, so this go around, I was planning on 75-80 ft/lbs

you can use regular motor oil, with which arp recommended something like 96 ft/lb using motor oil, and 84 ft/lb with lube for studs. Maybe someone can chime in with the specs on the bolts.

i always looked at your sig and wondered if you really meant 62lbs or if it was a mistake lol.

So what are you gonna do now, deck the block and head, new gasket and studs?
