    Looks like some oddball gasket material caused the leak....

    Interesting Hoover,

    as to the best of my knowledge the heads were never pulled but I am the 3rd owner and the 2nd owner owned a shop in NY did the 28rs turbos before I bought it..I placed maybe 3000 miles with mainly track miles so it must have had issue over the last 5 years is been in sitting in various shops since or it's getting a lot more oil pressure with the dry sump. But as much as I know it could have been gummy bears.
