EDIT: I did research, didnt find a situation like this, prepare yourself, if you are an impatient person skip to the all caps.
A long long time ago, in a galaxy far far away...
I bought this "rebuilt" motor from a guy who said the dude (third party) who rebuilt it was fairly reputable (rebuilds a lot of spec miata motors), but never rebuilds turbo motors. Long story short, it sounded like the rebuilder was a bit inpatient with the person I bought the motor from, since he knew he was rebuilding a turbo motor. I thought this was an important detail, but idk I have had a couple beers (5).
This rebuilt motor aparently had forged rods and low compression pistons from a 94 miata other wise bolted up to a 99 motor.
So after getting this motor and marrying it to a FMII turbo kit that was previously use by yours truely on a stock 99 motor for several track events at 10 to 15 psi happily, I buttoned the new car all up and ran 7 psi on the street for roughly 1000 miles.
After this, i thought it was time to turn it up to all the horsepowerz. So i strapped on the boost controller and cranked it to 14 psi (since you know, it had forged rods, itll be fine right?). well when i was tuning, during the 5th pull or so on the way to my boyfriends house, i clutched in after a 9000hp pull to hyper space and the engine died and i noticed some smoke coming from the tail pipe and hood. so I pulled off and popped the bonnet and noticed that i had no light because it was night time. so i pulled my phone out and turned the light on and noticed that there was oilz alll over my hoodz. (ive had 6 beers now).
Once my boyfriend showed up, we discovered our love, and then that i blew my....dipstick.....all over my hood. ........ ... ...... so after that we popped the dip stick back in and cranked it over. ran like garbage but long story short, got it back to my garage (not under its own power). towed mostly.
OK so after pulling my car and much kissing later, i discovered with my boyfriends that it was piston 1 that was not having any affecting the idle after pulling all of the plug wires. Spark was confirmed. Fuel was confirmed.
Ran and coerced the autozone tenant with many sexual favors for a compression tester......and coolant pressure tester.
SO HERE IS THE IMPORTANT PART
Coolant pressure holds 25 PSI no problem.............after we skeeted coolant all over a shitload of facial components and tightened multiple hoses and clamps.
Cylinders provide the following compression results, cold:
Cylidner 4: 160
Cylindre 2: 160.5
Cylinder 1: ZERROOOOOOOO.....ok maybe 2 or 3
for real though. nothing on cylinder 1. I do not have a borescope to figure out if there is any cracks or bullshit happening.
MY QUESTION IS:
Who wants to do this to my butthole:
HAHAHA OKOK im sorry. at this point i realize that no one is reading this. but for the hope that someone is:
I get the feeling that my piston rings are fucked, or pistons,
but what are the chances of blowing the head gasket ONLY to an oil galley to over pressurize the crank case and NOT affect the coolant system AT ALL?
Seems extremely unlikely to me, but i thought i would ask the internets.
If you have made it to this point. you win all the thiings. On beer 7
