So I managed to pull the motor out of the parts car and get it to the CG Station (the CO loves me, but the EO likes me more [Image: smile.gif])and take it apart, AND GUESS WHAT I FOUND??? A CHIPPED PISTON!!! I'm almost ready to get with the V8 SHO bearing guys and file a class-action for inferior pistons!!! BTW both were in automatic cars, so I don't think it was the driving. So, who wants to sell me a running motor, or car, anybody???

Right! those pistons chipped from detonation at 3:00AM when the car was parked, engine off [Image: biggrin.gif] Absolutely the worst case of preignition on record!!

Just to clarify, both of the auto TC's with chipped pistons I bought broke, I broke the one with 2 MISSING pistons. If you're gonna go, you gotta go big...
