Default Pop goes the engine!!!

R.I.P. Engine had 180k on it. To much boost and maybe to little fuel equals POP! I was logging too!

Enjoy!

HAHA Ya, I was just fed up already... I never got it to run right ever since i turbo'ed it. Sounded pretty cool, never popped a motor before. Still runs somehow. LOL I guess on three cylinders because there is a huge whole in the side of cylinder 1.

Engine had like 180k and was burning like a quart of oil every 1000 miles, nothing to shed a tear over.

ventilated block ftmfw (as I go switch back to my "conservative" spark table).

I have been meaning to build det cans, but finals are more important. I think I heard audible knock for the first time today on the 6th aggressive "spark thread" table I've tried. This table is FAST but makes me fear I'm going to spill rods on asphalt on the way to my last final.

I would say something witty here, but simple terms sometimes do the best. With that said, go **** yourself.

No reason to ever be going that fast on a public road. EVER.

Being reckless and putting other people in danger just for cheap thrills doesn't make you a man.
