If you are not willing to see how your spark plugs are burning, check/adj. your timing, pay attention to your air/fuel mixture, validate your fuel pressure and tune boost accordingly you should not be running a turbo.....before you put in your third motor I suggest you take an automotive repair class or buy yourself a few books... good luck son

BS comeon guys Scot has poped 2 motors by now :gay: but not in the same year geez. Yes slidin we where all new once but damn boy 95% or more of us read the faqs and spent a few hours reading everythread on the forum we thought looked interesting. This is simple but not fool proof or totally easy. You might be able to swing a wrench but i am thinking abit of patience and general attention to detail would go along way towards you not blowing your budget on motor builds every other month ya know

Alright well...
I went and pulled my plugs and they were all corroded and rusty looking, and the tips were Black.
What would cause that? Ping? Detonation?
And i figured out where all the oil is comming from, its just gushing out from my fitting. Im not sure if my crank case was pressurized or not, but i think it was becuase there was oil by where the plug wires are, and the oil cap was loose, so i figured it was becuaes of bad rings.
Im gonna have to find a compression tester today to make sure.
I replaced the plugs with old ones i had, and it would rev up to like 4k before it wouild just stay there. Detonation? I dunno.

Spend the money and get one more $1.50 plug for ***** sake.

Make sure your PCV valve is working if it's allowing boost into your crankcase you're going to continue having problems.

If I didn't want to see you get banned so badly, I would tell you to buy a ******* wideband, or mabye a Megasquirt to actually do it right this time. My **** just did its 7th and 8th track days and it's run 4000 miles in the last 3 months. Megasquirt, big injectors, wideband, professionally tuned.

Why should I get banned...
For asking questions?
For blowing motors out of stupidity?
