My L67 Top End Issue :)

well the prix has been down for a couple weeks as i started to misfire like crazy and did a compression test and one piston had no compression. started to take the blower off to get to the pistons and ****. pulled the plug and the plug was smashed. as you can see, the piston looks very clean for having 100k miles.











cool huh??? i posted at clubgp.com to see if this ever happend, since i never heard of just a piston chipping like that. the valve sits perfect and not a mark on the piston, nor the walls.

and one of just the bad ass fog lights i have

Hmm that sucks. Do you think something could have gotten in there? Could a piece of the supercharger broke off and got in there?

piece of the supercharger??? ummm not that i know of. my friend was saying could of been a slight receed to the head, but like i said im taking it to my machine shop tm if i have the time and let him take a gander for me. but if it was something more solid like from the blower, it would of prolly left some kind of marking in the clyinder. no one on clubgp has a clue either haha.
