i should have updated sooner!!

SO without digging into it first i just assumed a rod was bent and called it toast.
i took this time to order a IAG stage 2.5 block, cuz why not.

while waiting for that i took the engine out for the 2nd time in under 3 months.
started to disassemble
AND FOUND THE TIMING BELT TENSIONER WAS WOBBLY!!!!
was this my fault? did i not bleed the air properly? no idea.

this is when i learned that gates was outsourcing their pulleys and junk.
disappointing

anywho i thought i could just buy oem idlers/pulleys/tensioner and call it good.
yaaaaaa right.

i put it all back together, started it up and bam i hear some bent valve/valves... awesome

then i started thinking of where to go with it from here
