I gave the engine away and never heard back from the guy, always wondered if it was just rings or not (lost compression on #3)....almost a year later he emailed me.

I'm 16° at idle and pull 8° off the top. I dunno how that calculates to total timing and all that jazz.

I like the inclusion of the cat litter in the picture, right on top of the oil.

I'm not saying it had anything to do with a muffler, but:

87 octane fuel
14° base timing - No retarding device
203cc injectors
stock fuel pump
(3-4) 6psi pulls from 2nd to 4th

The final resulting in a billowing stream of brillant white smoke out the tailpipe and loss of compression in #3.






These pics are from my 8th post ever on this board over a year ago.
This was my first timing driving in boost, I didn't know what I was getting myself into. Had I known now, I wouldn't have been so stupid. I'm sure the thing was pinging like a ************ and I had no clue, and especially couldn't hear over my open DP.

I learn the hard way. I don't use Braineack for my handle and tag myself "The Sadim Touch" for nothing
