Evening gents,
i noticed some oil coming out of the exhaust port where the header and o-rings are. Needless to say I embarked on a diy fix...I seemed to have sorted the splurge problem from the header, but think it's now a bit close to the radiator... I think??input please, is it too close, can I cook the engine??😳
Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks gents👍🏻

It is fine, you will not do any damage to the engine.

Im pretty sure the additional heat will have an adverse affect and increase temps inside that radiator. I would suggest giving Vinny a call to see how long it would take him to fix. If you havent come right by the new year then let me know. If I have had my header fixed by then, then you are more than welcome to lend my oem header.

Naturally - if you break its yours and you replace.
