Radiator leak?  Hope just a hose!

My first thought was water pump, but the shroud that encases the radiator had a little drips on it. Unfortunately I don't think it's just a hose but hard telling until I tear it apart!

I don't see the failure mode here, the car works normally with the new PTU.
has anyone broken the output of the trans/input of the PTU to where it just slips?
Lol. There is no failure mode there. At least not from a power handling perspective. These only fail from lack of maintenance. Spun bearings and galling of the gears from lack of lubrication.

High Heat dries up the lighter oil molecules in the lube, which causes more heat due to lack of lubrication (thermal runaway) which leads to the remaining gear oil turning to thick black paste which clogs up the vent tube in the ptu which cause pressure buildup in the ptu which forces the remaining, non-congealed fluid out past the shaft seals. Now the only left is a thick paste thats easily flung off of the gears, sticking only to the case. After this chain of events, the bearings run dry and begin to fail, next are the gears. Tolerances widen or things begin to sieze.  Bearing and gear noise are usually the first signs of mechanical failure.

But the PTU internals are stout. The weakest part of our powertrain is the RDU Atc coupler. (The electronic coupler in the rear differential). At least in terms of tq capacity and power handling.

^ that was well put.  Change your fluid gents.  Also protect your PTU from heat at all costs.

Sent some logs out to Brad last night, from my logs it looks like I have a few degrees he could add to my spark advance.
Anybody know what the reply time with brad is like nowadays? I've heard hes gotten busy with IRL stuff.

When mine went bye bye, it was instant and from a dig.
first thing I did when I got the car was 2 flushes with amsoil 75w-140.

Thanks for the insight on PTU failures.

As for protecting the PTU from heat, any recommendation on what I should wrap my DP's with to try to keep it isolated?

I wrapped mine in typical exhaust/header wrap. 50 feet for like 12 bucks. You live in AZ too, your DP's wont rust if you wrap them.

I ordered a new set of 3D Maxpider Kagu Floor Liners part number and link
For reference below.
The last set of Aries Liners served me quite well since purchasing them back in 2016 which were later replaced by the newer updated version 3D Maxpider Liners. Z

Fixed the radiator leak. Turned out to just be a loose clamp and got an oil return line on the way as I think mine is leaking off the rear turbo and not the gasket I've replaced twice. After second replacement the oil leak got significantly worse RIGHT after the fix and only other part I touched was the line itself so I think it's leaking from the flex or maybe from the flange. Hard to tell as the leak goes onto the axle and it flings it everywhere. All I know is that it the only piece I've touched so car has that part out right now and waiting on replacement to arrive Tuesday.

Well, car is broke again. Flashing CEL, running on 5 cylinders, new plugs and swapped coils. Number 6 still giving issues. Fuel pressure funky at idle car hasn't been ran much. Number 6 covered in fuel. Diagnosis says #6 injector stuck open.

So yesterday tore the car apart, intake and charge pipes removed, radiator drain. Basically just need to take off coolant hoses and intake manifold. Replace injector and intake manifold gaskets and reassemble then oil change just in case from fuel dilution. Better safe than sorry on that.
