Well a couple days ago I started smelling a really really strong gas odor in my car and coming from the engine bay so I tried Seafoaming in a vain attempt to diagnose it.

Well, I don't know if I found the problem (and the smell has gone away) but it seems my front manifold is leaking really badly. Before winter I seafoamed and the manifold was leaking but only small tendrils were coming out. Looks like it's gotten a lot worse. Anyone have similar leaks? How does this compare? Car runs fine otherwise.

Good thing I'm putting headers on my car soon!

wow...that is pretty bad....


and yes, good timing then, for a new set of headers. When you do get them though, I would recommend you go to the dealership and pick up a new set of metal manifold gaskets before installing your new headers, as the obx headers (if that is what you are getting) comes with paper/fiber gaskets, and I wouldn't want to have to do that job twice...

Yeah so long as I don't pass out while driving lol. I don't mind loosing a few more brain cells, I make it a habit to loose those anyways on the weekends.

I did pick up a pair of metal head gaskets from a local shop so I'm set there. The dude I got my headers from didn't have the gaskets anyways. Thanks for though if it did have the paper ones I probably wouldn't have bothered.
