It’s really to bad, a lot of these mods are eye candy, you can’t see
Yep, but not related. JE Proseal (rebadged Supertech) gasket failed but likely as a result of insufficient clamping on the head studs. The oil passage fix held perfectly.Is this even after your "special" o ring fix??
Good luck with this one mate!Yep, but not related. JE Proseal (rebadged Supertech) gasket failed but likely as a result of insufficient clamping on the head studs. The oil passage fix held perfectly.
Head back and fire ringing done. Oil passage also drilled to seat the seal.

Can you share numbers and what they did different? I thought there wasn't much to adjust on the stock struts.Finally got the final post-suspension-swap alignment done on the car this morning. I had an initial alignment done to get it straight knowing that I'd need a second one to fine tune it after the springs settled. The initial was straight, but pretty wonky due to a communication breakdown. This time I took it to my normal shop & the car is stellar now. Side note: they had an old RS2000 up on one of the lifts, so cool!
(What does it say that I have a "normal" shop for alignment? lol)
You're correct, there really isn't much beyond toe that can be adjusted without adding camber plates, arms, etc.Can you share numbers and what they did different? I thought there wasn't much to adjust on the stock struts.
I have a '17 RS early build I think. I had to get the headgasket replaced.
So this road is high speed turns (Lots of turns like 60mph - 80mph, but also 40mph - 50mph as well) but with bumpy road surface. I can't really use sport suspension because It will be too bumpy and not give me confidence that the car is able to absorb the bumps will also taking the turn. In normal suspension I get too much body roll for the highspeed turns, the weight transfer / floating feeling kills my confidence.
This is where I see the revised dampers and mountune springs will come into play and help out. I think the road is going to get repaved soon so the road surface should improve.
As for bushing I was thinking this to reduce "torque steer" I get when the straights allow for near triple digits. I have turned off hill assist and have traction control completely off as some people say that helps with "torque steer". To me it seems if you're accelerating on a crowned road, it will follow the crown to either side. Hard to explain.
