There's 3 bleed points on the L67. Bleed them in order fro the water pipe on the drivers side near the alternator, then the thermostat under the charger u bend then the one in front of the valley under the supercharger snout.

It's always a pain to get all the air out but keep going round in sequence bleeding them closing each nipple and it will get the air out

Ummm... correct me if I'm wrong but isn't the bleeding sequence;

1: Bleeder under the charger snout,
2:Thermostat
3: Bleeder at the top radiator hose.

I'm just going on what a mechanic mate told me but I'll try that way tomorrow after I do my LIM gaskets. I always though to follow the coolant flow makes sense? Got to take into account the fact that the thermostat is closed initially too
