@Ben sadly, no. It is easy to reproduce, however. I am definitely reaching peak boost on the gauge so the loss of pressure isn't enormous.

comment Why has my car burnt through all the oil?
@DanielHumberstone, if this turns out to be a blown head gasket, it's one of those situations where the part isn't all that expensive but the labor could be. It should be significantly cheaper than a "new engine"!

Might want to suggest a second opinion: a mechanic that recommends a new engine for what sounds a lot like a blown head gasket is troubling.

A little more data might bound the question. For example, are you assuming that minimum tread depth is present? Is the tire I mounted or on a wheel? Or is the field wide open?
