    But I have no idea what the difference is with the transmission.

    I feel like I'm getting slightly better fuel economy and need less throttle to get going but that just be me...I'm convinced I have a front wheel bearing making noise so I might break down and splurge $50 and buy some new Chinesium ones and hope they last more than a month. Might even break down and check the tire pressure!
    camshaft with roller cam lobes? i don't think mine have this one, i wonder what is the part no. of this cam and timing chain.

    Maybe pop out a piston or 3 while you're at it.

    This guy on YouTube pulls apart engine cores. I don't know why but I can't turn away when he's disassembling an engine that you know someone grenaded.

    I pulled the pistons out. The one piston dropped down too far out of the hole when I was trying to get the rod bearing out so to get it out I had to hammer it back up destroying the rings.

    I didn't get pics yet, stripped out engine got pushed to the corner to make room for a squeaking 13' Hemi(bad lifter).

    I love this guy! "Piston McNuggets!" I was gonna suggest he tear apart a 3A92 as an April Fool's joke.

    Just as a reminder of and older thread "how to reduce level of enrichment when cold".

    It also reduces the likelyhood of pistons scoring cylinders because of excessive fuel washing off the thin oil film.

    I'll just get the recalls on my car done and keep parking in the heated garage all winter or use a block heater when it's full of other peoples broken cars.

    At first i’m thinking how’s it possible your NA engine is knocking when they come with knock sensors and here i’m running no knock sensor with advanced timing on 17psi for months no issues ��

    Then I saw your bearings lol… Isn’t it nuts how one guy can throw all the boost at stock engine having zero issues and another be cruisin in his daily and blow that chit up? Sometimes I myself don’t understand engines… Maybe contaminated oil?

    sure would be nice to have a hoist that I ordered from
    Babco in February right about meow.
    Now do I buy a used motor and cvt, just a motor or kick it to the corner and buy something else…
    Year and miles? Any parts departing sides of block?
