EA82T: Changing head gaskets, what else while it's apart?
Posted 11 September 2003 - 08:13 PM
You think new rings? it has 180k on it.
Anybody know where I can buy some high performance head gaskets? (I'll post in the market place too)

I figure at 180k the rings should be replaced.
Is it ok to use a scotch brite pad to cean the top of the piston and cylinder walls?
I used to do that with my dirtbike. Is it ok for a car?

do all your front, cam, and oil pump seals while youre at it.
do you have the turbo gaskets? if you have to re-use use hi-temp copper silicone sealant, use on new gaskets too.
replace the rubber hose from the turbo to the intake. we just did a whole gasket set on a turbo motor just to have that hose blow out!

Mainly I'll do all the seals and hoses.
Thanks for yor help.

the rear seal should be done if the motor is already out of the car. you will kick yourself if it springs a leak by ignoring it!

You are right though it ads up fast at the machine shop I spent $1600 on my EA82 when she was rebuilt. Biggest expense was a new head and labor.
