    I can't remember how to load a picture so I'll go search for the information and then i will show why the car is in the garage and being resurrected. Started the process with maintenance items. I'll show you what happens when the car isn't properly tuned. If I would have been a dumba** and just decided to ride around playing with the tune thinking that's all that was wrong with it, I would be fixing a much bigger problem. Be smart young ones, luckily I'm old and wise.

    Well, since he's left us to guess, I'm gonna throw out some random-ass guesses. If we go by his clues, he discovered the "bigger issue" while doing maintenance. And the way he's written it, it sounds like something bad *has* already happened and he saw it. Maybe some sort of mechanical damage. And it must be related to tuning, I guess.

    My guesses are: cracked/damaged hot side turbine blades, or maybe go so far as damaged pistons from detonation/knocking?

    Come on folks, let's see who'll guess the closest :D

    You claim you’re old and wise but not wise enough to actually post something beneficial.

    Squirrel chewed up the harness and put acorns in the fuel tank.

    Oh, there may be squirrels involved, but I'm gonna guess they chewed through the couplers and filled the intercooler with acorns...

    I have no doubt that he found either a bad timing belt, or perhaps a bad crank pulley since he mentions maintenance items (or perhaps the timing job was done, but incorrectly) OR he took some Ambien and doesn't even remember this post..

    This just happened to me last race, sure is fun to diagnose without a compression tester at the track (forgot it).

    I haven't forgotten sorry about the delay. Had a death in the family.

    Spark plugs we're so cover in black soot I couldn't recognize them. I was in the process of buying and replacing them, wires, coils and all the vacuum lines I found during inspection and learned my brother was shot and passed away before I was able to get to the hospital. I apologise for disappearing but will catch up with everything once the holidays pass. I hope everyone has a great and safe holiday season!

    Some of the replies we're pretty funny though

    I'm very sorry to hear about your loss, I lost people this year, but a shooting is something I cant imagine having to deal with... My sincere condolences.

    Pretty sure all the replies were meant to be entertaining, we're all a bunch of hyenas.

    Let us know what you find in the car, well put on our adult hats and help you if you need it.

    Thanks soo much guys none of the comments were taking seriously. I know how things go. Yeah 31 shot and robbed over $20 ish. From what they know is video shows my brother and a female friend leave a club followed by 3 guys(not going into race because who cares, murder is murder). He's stationed in England is all he said he could say. He graduated nuclear power (?) So im guessing subs(I was Aviation Electrician) as the guys circled around the officer, super nice MP, said my brother pushed the girl in the car while doing whatever knocks a guy across a hood and turns to fight and was shot point blank in the chest. The worst part is I haven't heard or read anything about it! Remember guys and gals Veterans Day isn't just once a year. Car update in works. Erase the post if it should be I really needed to get it off my heart
