If it's around the crank sensor I'd be inspecting the top hose to thermostat connection

Nope, no factory spec models had LSD in the UK.

The leak appears from the near side of the car and drips off the underneath near where the crank shaft sensor is located. It is not a significant leak but is getting worse and is doing my head in!

I have replaced the HBV with a new genuine VX one, I have replaces the washers on the coolant bridge, again with VX, I have also replaced the o ring on the coolant transfer pipe - such a lovely job to do!

When Darth replaced the cambelt recently he noticed a bit of steam coming from the thermostat area.

So the plan now is to strip off the plenum, injector rail etc so that I can see the top of the oil cooler and other bits in the V, I am going to put pressure into the system (my local garage has offered to loan me a tool to do this) and hopefully I will be able see where the leak is.

The purpose of the post... If anyone has any advice I will happily listen.

 ;)

27 out of 50 for me. These sorts of lists are always subjective. I would have put Monserat  and the Canyon du Verdon on for example.

Ok, without spouting off about gear and drive ratios and which was fitted to what, the factory spec MV6's where never fitted with LSD.

I am currently 'testing' eBay specials  ::)

Fitted last August. Not leaking yet. I pull a couple of plug leads every month.

Though do be aware that this is a test for OOF research purposes.

And partly cos I refuse to pay the 80-summat quid GM want.

What is invlolved in changing from the standard rear diff to a LSD....?

Is it a simple case of finding a MV6 and taking the diff from that car and fitting it to mine or is there more involved...?

I don't want someone to come along and start spouting about different gear ratio's and how it will effect the cars economy (LOL) or how it will lose top end speed or even if it will need another gearbox eventually etc...

Its just a hipothetical question... if its possible to do to mine...

Mine BTW is a X25XE couple to a AR25 gearbox with as far as I know standard Elite diff....


BTW not trying for 0-60 times but thinking when its time to scrap it - possibly next year - to turn it into a track car just for shits and giggles really...

Victor Reinz gaskets are recommended by other with vast experience so hope the gaskets serve you well  :) At least we now have an option for these gaskets rather than being ripped off at the stealers .
