Default Finally Bit The Dust

Well it was bound to happen, running 20psi on a stock 1.8l motor ....just minding my own business doing full boost pulls down a long straight away, testing out my new LS coil setup from flying miata and well, nothing happened there, everything sounded/ran great....BUT when I got home and let it cool down and went to drive home a couple hours later, something is a knocking bad. Feels/sounds like something in the head but my gut feeling is telling me I spun a bearing. Doesnt matter I have been slowly getting my **** together to build a motor anyway now its just going to take priority. Luckily I work at a place that allows pretty much endless overtime so I guess its time to hit it hard! I guess I will be sending the block, new rods/pistons (8.5/6 cr), arp main studs, and crank I have sitting on the shelf to get machined next week...
