Last week the X5 and I might have been airborne for a brief moment.

Compression, piston height, and leakdown tests tell me that exhaust valves on cylinders 5 & 6 aren't happy with the overrev. Guess it's time to pay VAC Motorsports a few bucks.

Oil leak not coming from valve cover gasket as we thought but a small crack on cylinder head cover (11121432928)so as me. and indy waited for part to be delivered I had him lift the x5 to look underneath and check suspension,that's when we found RMFD output shaft leaking driver side also left,right ball joints causing squeaking sound in rear, rubber mounting F pull rod and left,right front wishbones so that's what is being done today,waiting to drive it out of here.

Went to work in it! My son usually drives it to school but since schools out, I got to do some easy highway miles. Just turned 99K miles, too.
