It even physically possible to get the water temp to 100 deg over water's boiling point even with antifreeze and a pressurized system of only 15psi? Just curious.Motor is still in car.
Long story short.... In 90 degree heat, what should have taken 1.5 minutes, took 2.5 hours, Jersey barriers both sides. In hindsight id do a lot different, yes. Highest temp reached was between 300-320 degrees. I turned off car, after adding water and getting fresh back road air, temp was 240ish....
So ive been told upper end, lower end rebuild and pray for the crankshaft.
I can buy a complete 89 turbo and motor and tranny. Was just going to swap in new motor and turbo.
I need to know if my Citroen gearbox will bolt to the 89 motor.
This motor cooking happened in May 2001...... I need to get it running again.
Want to do it with Lotus running gear......
