Yes. Passed with flying colors. No blown head gasket. It was wrong. Luckily my friend owns a shop so we used his tester and the way we found the blown HG was with his coolant pressure tester. Put it on in place of the radiator cap. Shut the hood with it hanging out and went for a spin. Pressure went crazy because the boost pushed the exhaust into the water jackets. Head was corroded at the coolant jackets and the machine shop welded them up. Well their welds broke loose. Got a replacement head online for a good deal.Did you use the chemical test for hydrocarbons?
I was and am only running 9lbs. Sucks with the stock turbo but my buddy Doug with the T3/T4 at 9lbs is awesome. Bobby's 22ret at 20lbs is insane. Ha.
