The M54 ran a total of 5 minutes and peed coolant. I used Victor Reinz head bolts on the first reinstall and they were all over the place in the torque measurements. A couple never got to the first torque setting. I didn’t start the car but replaced the head bolts with stock new. I was concerned about 4 and these are the ones that failed. I suspect the engine overheated at some point way back when since the head gasket was cracked between cylinders in two locations when I first disassembled it.
