5 months of running doesn't look too bad. SC outlet gasket lifted off in one piece:

Belt dust? From the Accessory belt. Tensioner was weak. It'* running with a new one now, upgraded to a 3.25" oversized pulley to make up for the smaller Alt pulley
(this is with a GATES belt I might add, the Gatorback on the other path is fine):

Water injection (even with infrequent use) keeps SC rotors pretty clean, doesn't it?

Anyone in the Christmas mood? Jseabert still hasn't 'unpainted' his engine. We made a deal when I picked up some lower cladding for him. I'll take it back if he doesn't undo this mess:

All things done......SC/TB swap, plugs, accessory tensioner, re-tourqued exhaust. Not a bad weekend.

Bill, you're getting pretty good at popping that SC off and on.
Looks like it is as wet down there as it is up here.

I have a sudden craving for a pickle.......a green one.

Rebuilt and swapped 3 now. I can do it with my eyes closed and a beer in each hand.
