Default Just when I got my MS install all cleaned up...

I got pwnd by boost creep.


I bent 3 rods. I was getting a ton of creep and had my over boost cut set up at 18 psi.

I have the block in the shop going 1mm over, with B6T rods and a T-25 bored by forced performance to a T-28. I'm using MS1 with 2g TSI coils and cas wheel in a stock protege cas. She'll be back soon. Thanks for all the helpful info.

Sorry man, that sucks. Do you think it was just the extra load from 18psi, or a detonation problem?

Best job of bending rods ever - very clean. Did you check compression after the job? Yeah, any piston pics?

It's a common issue with the IHI VJ-20 (the JDM 323 GTX turbo) the WG is only the size of a dime!!! That with no cat, the Corksports DP, and cold weather...and you get a ton of cheep. That's way I going to a FP DSM "big T-28".

I didn't get any piston pix, cuz oddly they are just fine. I even put a mic on them just to be sure and nothing. The block and crank are even spot on!! I'm just getting the block bored cuz I have the pistons.
