bhg------ blown head gasket the 7mgte engine are very prone to them you will soon learn more about it just dont turn the boost up for the time being until you learn more about the engine thats in your car
I made over 300rwhp on just 13psi with mine, even if the HG was done, factory is not good enough,
I have gone through 3 Headgaskets on various 7m's..
Best thing to do. 1. Get a steel head gasket (cometic do em for $200 ish) 2. Get ARP head studs.. ($276 from memory) 3. Get head machined 4. Prep block yourself, takes time, but saves money. 5. Never have BHG issues again
I ran 17psi on my factory turbo and drove the car HARD every day, no HG issues..
