MY MUSTANG WILL LIVE AGAIN SOON!! The dealership ordered a new cylinder head and will getting me a rental car to tool around in on Monday! Yay warranty! :D
With one less head gasket to worry about (not counting my own), PDFs of every shop manual for the 924, 931, and 924S at my disposal and a random and unorganized set of tools, I started tearing down the engine to get to that head gasket.
After reading both Ford and Porsche shop manuals that a head gasket on a 924 Turbo is easier than the 2.3L Ecoboost. THIS is a war of attrition for here on out that I’m gonna win!
