Default Shoot me in the head!!!!!!!!!! (April Fools)

I really don't like the sound this engine is making. Clanking, hissing, rough and jerky.

I was nailing the throttle and then all of a sudden the power went away.

Don't drive it any more. Let'* get it torn down. Be prepared to go into the heads to inspect the pistons.

I sure hope so, you did too much work to that Bonne for something tragic like that to happen.

This is a nighmare

I can't believe what has happened.

So far I have the Gen 5 on the floor and it looks OK.

Got to get the heads off for a closer inspection................

I don't understand. I had the water injection on and was only seeing 15 psi of boost with the 3.1" pulley.
