pressure leak?

Ok i definatly screwed myself. i bought a 2001 SH lude and the dealer said he did oil change and all that garbage and i just trusted him. anyway long story short i went to hit v-tech, didn't hit at the normal spot. so i tried again and around 6800 rpm the engine did like a backfire or something. i checked oil and reaized it was dry but ever since then the car has been sluggish on the acceleration. im guessing i blew a piston ring maybe? any imput on this please help.

so now assuming i have an engine problem that i believe i need to practically rebuild the engine to fix im thinking it would be a good time to tune up my engine for either turbo or supercharge. so hear are some more questions. i know both turbo and superchargers add stress to the engine, what stock parts should be replaced to better handle this? also which method is less abusive to the engine. finally which will improve my acceleration better. tyvm

Um, I am not an expert but I'd say you need a little bit more than re ringing if you want to go turbo or supercharger. Problem is our H22 motors are a bit high on compression for turbo or a supercharger. If you don't want to build a motor for turbo or supercharger your best bet is to stay at a very low boost like maybe 6psi, I know I have heard 8 psi all over the place on stock H22 motors, but in my opinion I would just do your homework beef up the motor just so you know its right and you don't blow it up. I hear going with forged low compression pistons is the best about 9:1 or 9.5:1. I also here its a good thing to re sleeve the motor. Do a search there is plenty of write ups on turbo and supercharging.

any way ull definately need to sleeve r block... ull want better cams get them for lower compression like 9 or 9.5 ur gonna need new pistons isay u build a bad ass n/a lude... all boosted cars i kno always have problems every no n then if u have another car go for it rip some **** but if its ur daily driver make it n/a
