Nope not yet. Figured I'd wait for it to gum up the hole/s first.

So my verdict on the head gasket sealant: it's pretty good. Stopped the oil and water mixing straight away, and this morning I noticed that it's stopped the cylinder leak from pressurising the cooling system. That's after a week of daily warm-ups and about 5km driving. Will re-torque the head studs this arvo and see if it holds up to a bit more boost.

Crazy (but kindof understandable) delays in US production meant my first piston choice got assholed yesterday, in favour of some Spool Carrillos. Arrived today, so after a few weeks of idling along, my project is back in gear. Quite excited really.
Also got a local guy making a custom billet cam for it, so looking forward to seeing what that will do. Going to be a fun next few weeks.

Slow progress lately; bits arriving gradually. Nice shiny genuine N1 oil pump today. Camshaft is also done apparently, so hopefully will be getting the new motor in within the next week or two.

Any new updates mate?
Nothing much of late, been a hectic last month lifewise. Started a new job and had to levelup my skills to be able to cope. Late nights of study etc. Things are getting back to normal now though so will be able to finish the truck in time for summer.
Most notable bit of progress is the new bonnet liner which arrived the other day. Haven't got photos yet but it's a really impressive bit of aftermarket goodness.
Also, chased up the camshaft engineer after realising i hadn't gotten any updates on that; turns out they'd overlooked my order and hadn't started. That was the week before last so it should be about done by now.
In the meantime I've taught myself how to do standstill burnouts in my driveway. I'm pretty sure my neighbours think I've flipped my lid, full midlife crisis style. Stuff 'em though, I'm having fun. Which i guess is what a middle-aged guy in crisis would say haha.
