replied to the thread My Top Mount Single Turbo Build 135i 6AT N54.
" ^ my exact thoughts. I really hope his engine is ok and that blown n54's with singles don't become commonplace. IMHO, nobody should get into boost with a new setup, before a qualified EFI tuner has some time with it. One of the first of my honda friends, back in 2005, to jump on the turbo bandwagon after I had made 300whp on a stock dohc 1.6L(b16a), cracked all 4 pistons on a honda b20b during his first pull. I told him to NOT DRIVE IT, until I had reprogrammed his ECU. He learned the hard way. Thankfully, the VC breather isn't anywhere near the turbo/manifold on a B-Series. My brother almost burnt his SR20 240sx to the ground, when he cracked a ring land and blew oil out of the breather all over the turbo/manifold. Thank god he had a bottle of iced tea and that was enough to put out the flames. Blowby out of the VC breather while under boost = cracked/burned pistons. "
