There it is!



Blows the dipstick out of its hole if you rev it, I assume broken ring or hole in the piston. Had been consuming a ton of oil due to manifold mounted converter failing and getting sucked in. Purchased a low mileage used engine from a wrecking yard, so that will be my fun this weekend.

Yeah, top end has been ticking/rattling for a while now. I knew it was just a matter of time. Scrapyard engine was a decent price, but I will keep this one around to dissect.

Haha, maybe. It is only pushing 7lbs of boost on a good day. Factory supercharged. I rebuilt it a little while ago with new bearings, coupler, and fresh oil. Can you believe nissan doesn't sell the supercharger oil? They said it was good for the life of it. The snout sure ran a lot cooler after that. I had to go to GM since it's similar to the one on a grand prix.
