Alright guys, everything is off.. all the mysteries are solved.. or not.
Here are the pics of everything.. the circled stuff is actual wetness [all of which are coolant], anything else you see is just poor lighting. Also, there is one pic [it'* labelled] where the head gasket didn't quite seal like it did in other places, and I looked at the bolt, and one of the threads are all fucked. I forgot to snap a pic, but next time I go out for a photo-op, i'll be sure to snap one of the bolt. And that bolt wasn't torqued down quite as much as the others.. like I didn't even need the cheater bar for it, so idk if the block threads are fucked up, or if it is just the bolt. I've yet to look at it.
These are the valve covers [obviously]. Look how clean they are! The outter portion of them matches the inside in their cleanliness. Look at the front [top] valve cover, you can see what I mean. The rear [bottom] valve cover has it too, now that I look at it, but it doesn't seem as bad, and it'* only for one rocker.
Nice shot of the front cylinder bank. Forgot to circle one spot, top left corner.. that coolant port. That'* wet.
Close-up shot of the wetness on the front cylinder bank.. this is circled.
This is the rear bank, the circled part is NOT wet, however that is where the gasket didn't seem to look quite the same as the rest of the gasket area. Not sure if that means anything, that is also the spot where the bolt that had the damaged threads, that was the one in that corner.
Close-up of the above spot.
Head gaskets, labeled F for front, and R for rear, obviously. The lighting in that pic sucks, so you really can't see anything, and there isn't a whole lot to see anyways.. the front head gasket had some oil on the center cylinder bottom thing.. not sure how or why that got there.
I'm guessing this was the head that leaked.. this is the only spot at which the water trail goes to the combustion chamber.. it'* the one with the pretty lines around it. This is the front head, and the partial gasket you see, is also for the front head.
Again, self explainatory.. rear head.. water, and the bad sealing in that same spot.
Blasted! You can tell something wasn't right.. there was something really gross burning off. All exhaust tubing [headers, crossover, and input to cat-back] has that ****.. i just chose to take a pic of that header. Not cool guys.. not cool. Not sure what that could be.. but i know it'* not supposed to look like that.
