    ok....so now im in deep shit...when i tried taking my t fitting out of my block while removing the turbo kit....i snapped it in the block.....so i got a bolt and put this "knead it" epoxy stuff and put some around the threads and jammed it in there and put more stuff all arond the bolt and epoxyd it shut....i put oil in my motor and it ran fine for 5 mins and was leaking nothing....then after 5mins i looked under the car and sure enough it was raining oil....the oil pressure must have blown the bolt right out......is there anything out there i can use to take the snapped piece out of the block so i can put the pressure sensor back in? or is there anything else i can do to shut that shit shut

    +1. You can get bolt extractors anywhere. Autozone, Home Depot, etc. Good thing is that you won't have to do any drilling seeing that the hole is already there.
