Re: Head Gaskets Again? Need Advice

So........back to the thread topic......You say it's a whistling coming from the degas bottle? Usually if the cooling system is being pressurized by combustion from head gaskets leaking, You will puke coolant out of the bottle.

If it's just a whistling noise, especially at 50 psi of boost, I'd check for a turbo hose leaking somewhere. All it takes is a pin hole or a slightly loose clamp at those pressures to be noticeable

Probably be easier to send the crank to Marine Crank or Winberg to have them weld it. Then it could be reground, induction hardened, and micro polished.
