Do you have a cause for the failure yet? Im guessing the motor is toast? I feel for you Kyle as I went through the same thing and it totally sucks.

this is my second blown engine.... cannot believe it.
I am waiting till the shop does their own diagnosis, but I am very certain I know what it was.

they have been attempting to tune this car for weeks, a month even, getting help from others on the forum, but never made any progress... should have never went to 3Bar, should have stayed MAF. anyway.... dynoing pig rich, running on the dyno with 3 coils unplugged, cranking it for 3 or 4 days with tons of fuel and never getting it to fire.... list goes on.

but like i said.... I am going to wait for them to diagnose, but I am not extremely happy right now.

Wow, sorry to hear that! I was following your thread as I think this is one of the nicest TT install I've seen. Hope you get her running soon.

LoveFab did a fabulous job on the fabrication of the turbo set up... there is no doubt about that!

Kyle,
This is really a bummer for you. I hope it turns out that it's not a serious issue and that it's up and running again soon!

yeah, from what i hear, he does some magic voodoo dance and can pretty much rebuild an engine overnight while adding a custom computer setup for the wicked turbo he fabbed while he was sleepwalking.

or something to that effect

just heard from LoveFab,

they say the leakdown test yeilded the same results as when they started the project.
he says this means it was absolutly not an issue from tuning and "fuel wash"

even though there was definitely fuel and metallic in the oil.

I am not placing blame on anyone yet... i just want to get some answers.

I find it coincidental just after a few miles with the new turbos that the oil pump fails... when it was find for the last 8k miles.
and it had nothing to do with 4 weeks of bad tuning and coils popping off on the dyno and drilling two holes into my oil pan (with it still on the car)


If anyone has any technical input to help me understand what could have happened... please let me know
