Re: Engine Update

Um there is an exact reason that we have founded yet but there are definetly areas that we pin pointed. what i think may have happened is a spark plug broke and a piece of it went down into the cylinder walls and scratched the walls. Option 2 is that i have a borken piston ring. I burn oil like there is no tomorrow. But as for how i blew it, basically just driving it really hard. oh and it could be a blown gasket or my valves are blown. like i said, lots of things it could be. So i decided to rebuild it finally. put some forge pistons and what not in it to build it up better then stock. I will try and get those pics too
