Re: If you had a $1000.00....

Victor reinz head gaskets $127. Arp studs $389. Oil cooler $183. Intake gaskets kit with turbo hardware $32. Injector orings $30. Oil screen (under oil cooler) $15. Find a buddy that can tig weld the egr cooler $ free beer. 3 gallons of oil and a oil filter and some ford gold coolant... That should soak it up. Then start saving for labor or tear into it.

Save for the big project. No sense in tearing it apart twice.
