Your hole situation (that's the appropriate spelling for this app I think) is pretty unsafe though. If you don't have the cash for MS, how are you going to afford a new engine if gremlins show up? Just something to consider.
Check this out in a list format:
unknown tune on an uncontrollable computer
turbo capable of pretty big boost
your only car to get to work
Good to know with the dremel
Hole situation is correct. This vehicle experience has been a nightmare.
And you're correct if any 'new' gremlins show up, I'm screwed.
I didn't plan on doing a rebuild, my motor spun the #4 bearing on the crankshaft on the day of me picking it up from BEGi. Once the motor was apart, there was a lot more wear that just the failed bearing. Whoever had my car before drove it into the ground and autox it at one point. In some weird way, I'm glad the bearing failed now or I would of been down in the hole further if I took the vehicle back and it failed after my tuning mystery was solved. Mostly sticking with 9.5:1 CR to eliminate additional tuning.
The List so far:
Supertech 9.5:1 83.5mm | Wiseco 8350XX rings
H-Beam Manley rods
And a used crankshaft from a car in california that was caught on fire
, according to the machine shop my crankshaft is a no go due to the #4 bearing failure.
As for my questions in bold, dremel approach is nice but I don't have access to doing this myself. I will try to find out from the machine shop. For avoiding DET with my aids, leave timing alone?

E85 seems to have solved that issue though.
Interested in your tune, going to scan through your build thread now
