After 2 years I fixed my smoke problem
My car is turbo for those that don't know. Anyway I have a hi vol oil pump on the after market motor. From Day 1 the turbo had oiling problems.
At first it leaked down the down pipe when that was fixed, It started smoking. Not a lot. But enough to piss you off.
Long story short. After installing 38000 nos tip to slow down oil it stilled smoked
The fix, the motor no longer has vac. it is pressurized the pressure in the motor was not allowing the oil to return to the pan from the turbo, Venting the vavle covers has resolved the problem
Now for a new short block, why the old one is hurt :sad5:and has been sleeved in the #1 piston. Sad but true.:puke:
For all the forged this and coated that I am scared to mat it.:faint: I have pulled 3 degrees of timing out across the board.
And planning on a new short block. A local shop has quoted me 1200 dollars r and r to in stall it. Not bad
They are "Triple X" They designed and built a twin turbo 347 stang that runs 9's. They have a dyno. And they know how to use it

Sounds like a plan but the $1200 for just labor??? Or is a complete drive in to drive out tuned and ready to rock service included?

Pics and updates are expected.

Just labor
I follow your builds:party_06:
If you would like the short block shipped to you, just say the word:toothy11:

Right on, hope the new tip keeps your oil under control. I bought some for the twinturbo mustang, but as everyone knows, i haven't had it running for years.

Re: After 2 years I fixed my smoke problem
Hell, you'd pay that much in shipping alone to get it to me. There you can have a local warranty of sorts. If you were local, I'd surely take the work.

Good luck with it.
