All BS aside finally, I'm still messing with this thing.

For those that don't know, this 2nd SBT motor is also overheating on me.

I have not yet installed the heads sent to me by SBT, I should have them on by Thursday or so (maybe).

In any case, I have little faith that this will cure the overheat anyways.

I'd like to sell the ski, but as hydro mentioned to me, regardless of what I do, keep or sell.. it's worth more w/o the problem.

I'm going to go ahead and do something that Hydro suggested to me before and what Randy at Watcon suggested I try today when I spoke to him on the phone for a few minutes.

Going to pressure test the cooling system finally and see if I have a leak somewhere in it.

If I do.... theeeen, I guess we'll go from there. I think pressure testing the pipe itself would be quite the ordeal. I guess I could bolt some type of plate to it to seal it tho.

Javier, looking for a pipe and manifold to use, I happen to have both??
Maybe it's easier to just throw on the manifold and pipe and see how it does??
Let's say the cooling system is fine, what else could have changed? Possible timing issues??
