went to pull what i though was a bad turbo .. turns out that the turbo and the block are now junk .. cylinder 3 punched a hole in the block .
I probably will just go back to a 2.o fore now. to be honest i am not sure if i even wanna keep modding at this point .....

( I know I will get slammed for all the trash i talked .. feel free)

Re: well , it was fun while it lasted (sassbs)

the thing that pisses me off is it was in first gear and 12 psi not even crazy , it was like BOOM.. and a lot of bad noises and smells

are you/were you running a wideband?

those motors should run 12psi allllll day long, I wonder if something was wrong causing it to run lean.

p.s. go cut some broads hair, get some moneys and put in a new block. switching back to a 2.0 would be dumb (and prolly more work)
