So finally after driving it for a bit and trying to sort it out (knock sensor code, some sort of smoke on shifts) I've come to the conclusion is a huge piece of junk and im going to have to probably change the turbo and pull the head since i think its got a burned valve... F'ING ALLTRAC!!!

The wife and I pulled the 165 apart last night to see what sweet damage was causing my poor leakdown situation and oil smoke... well this is what we found! :(

Thats kinda odd...

What do the piston tops and head chambers look like?

Killed with a bad tune or fuelling issue.
Youve detonated/pinged/knocked those pistons to death :(

You should have heard the pinging...

somehow I think it would be difficult to hear over my 3" straight turbo back motoria... but regardless the motor has lived with a to4e at high teens on a stock ecm for mabye 10k mi about, so im not that disappointed. I'll throw a set of bearings in it and some forged slugs and then sit down and figure out how to fuel the darn thing.

We definitely need to get together at some point this summer... We just got our 165 up and running.

I'm about 5 minutes away from O'hare and I work in Naperville, but we're all over the place.

Word..

i don't know how long it'll take me to figure out the fuel side of things in this car since 300whp doesn't interest me anymore.. i have enough turbo for 500, so if i shoot for 400 i should be in the money... especially with a new set of pistons and rings to help my confidence!

Well, if you want an extra hand or whatever, let me know and I'm sure the wifey and I would be willing to come out for a bit.

Last year i had same problem with stock pistons. I will post tomorow photo. I think the reason is to much boost and high oil temperature. Well spent the evening with his wife
