Why bother sealing it, if you use the car it's unlikely that I will get bad enough to cause any issue.


Exactly. I think sealers are a scam. My 510 even sat for 12 years and the inside of the tank looked brand new. Fuel filter didn't have a single piece of debris.

Never understood low compression turbo engines. If not boosting it's a 7.8 compression running dog.


Didn't you say stock L16 with U67 head has like 6.7:1?

Smoke under load is rings smoke when you get off the gas is valve seals.

wouldn't bad rings cause blow by and smoke out the breathers? My short block has 3k miles and burns oil under accel. No oily messes from the breathers. I think it's valve guides. Changed the seals and it still burns. I think valves are wobbling in the guides, distorting the seals and sucking in oil.
