Update on My Truck...Finally

Got the call from the shop and went over!

Well, Blew a Piston on it...

And what caused it........Yup thats right the Supercharger! The computer is the main reason why as well! It was forcing to much info and it blew a few spark plugs and that is what caused this whole deal! I swear these Whipple people don't know what they are doing at all..I'm gonna go crazy on them I have pics of the spark plugs as well, 3 of them are gone, nothing there...

Now its time to call Whipple up and get someones butt down here to pay for all of this and what not else!

Just put a $2,000 down payment on the new built engine I am having made about an hour ago..

Total cost of everything is $4419.16

No stock engine for me this time around..This sucker will be built for a supercharger/ and or Nitrious....Anything that you can think of will be put on to the new engine! Forged Pistons, Graphite Head Gaskets, etc...It will have alot more power than the stock 3.0 though!

Supercharger ain't going back on until Whipple does something bout this! I swear if it is a computer problem, they are going to pay for everything that is getting done!

Yea, I aint gonna do a stock 3.0 engine again at all! No Point whatsoever ya know.. Actually, i was think about doing a 4.0, but the guy was like stick with the 3.0, you'll love it when i'm done with it...I don't know what he has in store though, but it should be sick when its done!

They will be paying for everything once they get a hold the the computer program they downloaded to my ECU, and that will tell them that it is all f-ed up and they don't know what they are doing!

They have a 60yr guy working there, doesn't know a da*n thing he is talking about, and I swear if i could only punch through a phone i would feel sooooooooo much better!
