Re: shift's build-that's wassup

I've had that in the back of my mind also, I just don't want it to be true. I just replacedmy hg, so if it is blown again, i really domt know why that could be. Compression test will be done tomorrow if i can find my compression tester.

I'm running a t3 at 7psi and only making 230 hp/tq, that should put things in perspective. You will need to run very high boost to make 300 hp which will be way out of the t2s efficiency range. It will also cost you more money because you have to buy a flange and have it welded. If you really are st...

Drop a teaspoon of oil in the low compression cylinder and do a compression test. If the compression goes up, your rings are bad.
