Well Im sure it was only a matter of time, but it finally happened 5 yrs. first blown motor. It's time to learn....

Heres some background..



I just put a 50mm tial bov and new charge pipe on, the next day it rained I couldnt drive the car hard. Next day after work I went snowboarding some kid wipes out in front of me, I jumped over him caught an edge, face flopped broke my arm, 2 days later had surgery 5inch plate and 6 screws, in a cast past my elbow, cant drive.



Started the car up a couple weeks after surgery got a small arm brace now and let it idle for a while, just to keep it fresh. So I guess I fowled the plugs from it idling to long cause it began to ran like ****, I cleaned them and reinstalled, the car ran fine. I said **** it I'll go run my laundry to work and my moms.

Leave work get snagged in an inspecton stop make sit thru this gay mobile inspection unit for like an hour and gave ma a 130 dollar ticket ******** lol

So I get to my moms and leave.

My bros following me in his Dinan 3 series. So I punch it at 7 lbs it mad some weird noise didnt know where or what it was did it again saw my boost start flucuating and the car starts runs like **** and stalls. I restart it running like **** thought my plugs just got loaded up cause of my earlier problem drive home park it went and got new plugs for it put them in no change I said ****.

Went to work yesterday grabbed my compression tester front rotor all faces over 100psi and the rear 50,50,100psi ****



I called and spoke to Tony at T&R. He told me what I expierienced was a pinging, and was most likely caused by some type of fuel problem. Anyone have anymore info on this?



So went strait back to work grabbed most of my tools and went at it.

In an hour I turned my garage in to a shop. 4hrs later motor and trans are out and seperated got the turbo off too. Mind you I did this all basically 1 handed with no power tools. The only help I recieved was when I accually pulled it out, my buddy helped guide it out of the bay.

So, I was gonna finish and tear it down to a short block today but its ******* snowing like blizzard type lol. My little dinky compressors not strong enough to blast off the flywheel nut, soo I have to throw it in the Cadi and go to work to get it off but its too crazy out to drive there

Basically I figured Id let you know what an awsome month I've had lol



The real reason I made this theard is to get some tips on my rebuild and see what u guys are using in your motors.



Because Im out of work for the next 2 monthes and have nothing else to do with myself, I will be rebuilding this in my room and be posting up pix and details of my build.

Sorry to hear, not a good way to start a new year. Well with your broken arm you dont have to drag it to your work and back just to get the nut off. get a chizzle and a hammer, couple good wacks it will spin off. Tear it down, post the pics.

The compressor isn't the issue, it's the impact gun. Just borrow a bigger gun from somebody and bring it home (that's what I did, worked like a charm).
