do yourself a favor... if you spend the money on a built motor ditch the "F/IC I think it was" and get good engine management. Also spend the money to have it professionally tuned or you'll blow up a much more expensive motor.

Ahem...
Yea, that sucks you blew your motor, and that's cool you built a sweet manifold, but you gotta use some basic grammar. Your first post is ridiculous. Come on, just do it. Don't write 30 post explaining how you have the right to be stupid and plan to abuse that right. Just try. Nobody cares if you typo, but when you fail to use any punctuation or capitalize the first word of your new sentence, people ignore you. Granted your two threads now are interesting, but if you were trying to ask for help and typed a huge paragraph with choppy fragments all fused together you'll get more post picking on your lack of grammar than useful post to help you with your problem.

Sincerely,
The grammar **** of MT.net.

PS- What size turbo were your running?

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 6th and noticed my boost gauge acted weird so I let off, dropped it back to 5th and cruised. A second later a hatch 240 flies by me and 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 heard a clinking noise and in my rear view mirror all I could see was oil and a lot of it. I quickly turned off the car and pulled over to the side. The worst came to mind: "omg don't tell me I blew my engine," I thought to myself as I stepped out of the car. I looked at the hood, and the engine bay was clean, but Ilooked under it and there it was the biggest hole I hadever seen. It was on my oil pan. I went to the other side and it was clear I blew that **** up: another hole on the block. I wasn't too mad about it because I kinda knew it was going to blow eventually, so now I have an excuse to build it. That's 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.
I lost count around 70. Go back to ******* elementary school.

Looks like you should have left it on low boost.

You should ditch the idea of building anything for your can and enroll in some ESOL classes.
