Default Baddd Dayyy!!!!

ok so i was driving to my shop were i came upon this turbo vw he didn't look that tuff but you can never jugde a book by its cover so i started to follow him untill he hit it man that thing was fast i couldn't keep up on low boost so i turned it up and there i was catching up to him, i shifted to 6 and noticed my boost gauge acted weird so i let off and dropped it back to 5 and cruised a second later a hatch 240 flys by me so i couldn't let that happen again so i dropped it down to 4th on high boost and by the time i hit 5th i hear a clinking noise and in my rear view mirror alls i could see was oil and alot of it, i quickly turned off the car and pulled over to the side.. the worst came to mind.."omg dont tell me i blew me engine" i thought to my self stepped out the car, looked at the hood engine bay was cleaned looked under it and there it was the biggest whole i have ever seen. it was on my oil pan went to the other side and it was clear i blew that **** up another whole on the block.. i wasn't too mad about it i kinda knew it was going to blow eventually soo now i have an excuse to build it... thats how my day went today....if any of you guys can help me in the search of finding the parts to build a new engine or anything please help i would really appreciate it..

How much boost were you running and what were you using for fuel/timing?

when most of us blow our motors, we simply lose the rings and some compression. Throwing rods is the work of a true tuner.

Well that's one way to get rid of rotational mass. Who needs those pesky rods anyway?

That's how Mazdaspeed 3/6 motors fail. Deto takes out the wrist pin and piston and/or rod punches through.

do the MSM's have the same basic motor as the MSP's? I had one of those throw a rod while I was behind it on the highway. PSA - never let your friend who knows **** about cars adjust your MBC for you.

Wait.. so your new blow off valve killed your motor?

Cocaine is a hell of a drug.
