Does it sound like a babbling brook? ( :ghey: ) Its probably just air in the system. Search for burping the system, or better yet take it to a shop that has a vacuum pump and have them bleed the system.

Also by "WOT in 1st gear with clutch all the way in", do you mean you rev it like that standing still? If so :nono:

True. A BHG would make your performance suffer noticably. Also you should be able to hear the difference in the sound off your engine if infact it blew all the way through. look for other symptoms of a BHG. Sounds like your cooling system needs a burp though...mine does

BZZZ - wrong. A BHG does not necessarily make the car run "noticebly" worse. It will hurt performance, but its not like taking a sparkplug out unless it is a really bad BHG.

I had a BHG for a few months and didn't even notice it b/c is was relatively minor. I lost coolant and had some sweet smelling smoke and this waterfall sound.

Go get a leak down test done and see if that is the problem.

It really depends on where the BHG is. If it's in between cylinders then performance will suffer. If it's in between a coolant jacket and cylinder you might never notice a performance drop. Hell I drove to Bryan TX, Houston, then to northern Mississippi all on a BHG. Car ran perfect except that it was going through coolant pretty quick. I even raced a WRX STi and a Neon SRT4 w/NOS and beat them both, all on a BHG.

Yea I drove 600 miles from CO to OK. Dindt lose any coolant. Could altitude cause a need for coolant burp? Maybe thats a stupid question if it is tell me so Ill know how to be a little more of a gimp. Seriously thanks though its nice to see everyone is opening to helping me

Sounds good-make sure when you check the coolant you look in the actual radiator, not just the overflow tank. With a BHG, the radiator can lose coolant and force it onto the overflow, and not have the pressure to bring it back due to the leak. If your rad. and overflow are still full, just burp the system and you should be cool. Maybe the air got there from a bad incomplete coolant flush (notorious at jiffy lube's)

check the coolant...follow the sogi site's procedure to burp the rad and it should take away the sea in the dash syndrome
