    lol Click here to enlarge last thing he needs at this time with the big single marketing is posts about engine failures at stock turbo power levels...

    hey Shiv, suggest you get a GOOD lawyer as those threats to people won't work on everyone...someone may/will sue your ass and then you and your lawyer can giggle it off in court

    This is lamer than lame if indeed true....@SyndicateGT, please don't tell me you believe those threats can/will materialize to anything...if anything you've got a case there to sue him based on physical threats

    This kind of talk always makes me nervous. I'm hovering over my engine listening for weird noises and of course I hear all kind of noises and ask myself "is this normal?" Click here to enlarge
    Definately sorry to hear about your situation SyndicateGT. I would be devastated.

    It is, but it has an insanely loud knock/clank. Kinda obvious unless you don't start the car. Again, I'll post videos/photos at a later time.

    *edit - the engine runs great actually. Doesn't throw codes and datalogs look good. Feels healthy and strong. Just has the noise which might be minor or it could be a ticking time bomb.

    Before too much mis-information gets tossed around on here (and the other forum for that matter). I'm keeping quiet for a while longer as Shiv threatened to sue me if I opened my mouth. More to come in a few days.....but it's definately not a rod bearing at the moment.
    WTF....haha on what grounds can he sue you. Defamation? For stating facts...not likely

    I never said I had a blown engine, there were a lot of rumors on here that I wanted to stop. Work is still being done and investigated. I'll post back once I know more facts (vs guesses).

    This information should be front page stuff!!

    Short of Shiv paying for damages (highly unlikely) there is nothing that should prevent SyndicateGT from spilling the beans. Click here to enlarge

    Sounds like this forum could right Shiv's personality profile to a T w/o even an interview.

    It helps when we've met him. He's not too bad in person but with 15 years in the business he still hasn't learned the fine art of communicating on a public forum. Maybe we could suggest a remedial ESL class for him?

    I'm just kidding guys. Shiv knows all about this thread (and a few others). There are no threats of being sued, NDA's, etc.

    Facts are simple. Neither mods or (me) pushing the car hard caused any issues, unless the dealer beat on it which I cannot prove. I brought the car in to the dealer for a rough idle to have the intake valves cleaned. They called me letting me know the car has a knock now, then denied their work caused any of the issues. I recently dropped the oil pan and replaced a rod bearing, as the dealer insisted that was the issue. The old bearing, rod, and crank all looked good. The car is still making the sound, but further investigation is leading back towards the dealer causing some sort of damage to the valves or lifters. This is all I know so far until the head is removed, which might not even be done because I'm trying to sell the car and disclosing the known issues.

    Wow this thread got off topic. I'm guilty of that I guess... but my point was just that you said you got a good look at the engine and that it was very much aluminum, so I figured you would be able to answer the question is forged or not.
