I mean I know it's be we're talking but still. COME ON.
I really don't understand. Usually there's a cause/effect. Usually an obvious one with blowing an engine. WOT pull gone wrong/tuning. A pop, bang, boom, smoke of some sort.

Your motor didn't go out with a bang cause you've been raping it so hard for so long that its like a silent submissive prostitute, it has no energy to even try anymore.

This makes me feel better about my car. Thanks


LOL, seriously though, time for a poor mans rebuild.. just do it right and don't cut too many corners. You need to do your research and see what corners are worth cutting.
