Got Both The Head Gaskets Fixed...BUT

The shop called and said they replaced both head gaskets and the coolant and all! But the guy I always have work on my truck (he has 20 plus years working as an mechanic) said the Supercharger is knocking pretty bad, and prolly thinks that it went bad for some reason..Its still blow white smoke out the end, so I am taking it over to Ford and see what there mechanic says since they do put the SC on and work on them anyways! Always good to have a second opinion, so I called up Whipple and ask them about it, but I have to go to the shop and get numbers off the SC to provide for them!

I will let ya'll know more when I know more! Later ya'll!

I would guess tuning, spark plugs or the wrong gas(to low of octane). Other then that its ard to say.

or Bad Mass airflow sensor, or injector.

If the coolant got into the supercharger it could have wiped the bearings out. Dont want that to be the cause but it is possible.
