Haha details would be nice, motors don't blow at 87k without some form of abuse or lack of maintenance.

87k was about when my buddy's 2.0 took a poo, but it never really quit, just smoked a lil and ate tons of oil..

of course, it had a wonderful life, every bolt on and no tune for half of those miles, then an 18g, then back to stock turbo +tbe and no tune.. I wonder why it let go?? haha

AHH - there should be a 'blown motor' section. Categorized by what caused it to blow.


OP - Was it caused by the oil pick up tube weld crack?

I have 110k and I'm worried when the crack will appear.

Is there data on this issue?

Yeah - I know - search...
