Well, after all I've done to get this 924S running, it seems I have a leaking head gasket..in a perfect world I would replace it, but it's not feasible at this time. I don't have coolant in my oil or oil in my coolant and it isn't overheating nor is there any gas bubbling in my coolant reservoir. I've pulled plugs and #1&#4 are definitely "steam cleaned". My question is, would there be a head gasket sealant that might possibly work? Any input would be appreciated. I am going to run cylinder compression and coolant system pressure tests this weekend

Not a head gasket, fortunately. There are some theories being bandied about. Water in gas tank is the prevailing one

If your only conditions are white plugs, perhaps you could suspect your injectors or fuel distributor. Water would be equally distributed (pun intended).

Seems to be sorted out. There's a very small amount of smoke from the tailpipe but nothing like before. I still plan on sending the injectors to Witchhunter performance this winter. With any luck I can also work on other things I had planned for the "offseason"
