amazing pictures

And yes not running 91 in a modded supercharged car is a terrible idea.

That pic of Bo hanging his head is classic. You can see the grief. :(

On a positive note, the next Zilla engine will be awesome. Hope you put some billet forgings in that baby.
Should be a fun swap.
Take your time and enjoy.
None of this 2 hour quicky Boosty swap stuff. Slow and easy and enjoy each and every bolt torquing. You have all winter.

Save the best for when I get there on Dec.17

Let'* clarify something.

I can't pump my own gas in Oregon. If I miss watching the pump jockey ONE TIME, this is what happens.

Modified? I flow like no other series1. I run with ZERO KR on premium. Very well tuned. This can happen to a STOCK L67 that doesn't flow as well. Think about it.

Detonation is a bitch. Early combustion and shockwaves/flamefronts colliding at the rim of the piston can break stuff. At least the ring took it like a champ.

Even with the 2.2, we only had random knock counts, and no KR.

Let this be a lesson to every L67 owner out there that chooses to save a buck by running lower octane.
Bill is the station going to be held liable for damages? Sorry to see see/hear about the carnage but like in my case I'm sure you will take lemons and make boostade.
