Post up Modifications, i.e. engine management, modifications, fuel, circumstances and what actually failed in the motor. Try to keep it short and concise as possible, this is meant to be a list not a novel.

If you got logs post'em too.

Post the tuners name?... Well that's your decision, but I don't think it's necessary to do so.

Here is the template:

Model/Year:

Milage:

EM:

Mods:

Fuel:

Circumstances:

Actual engine failure:


I'll go first and post about my stock 15 WRX

Model/Year: 2015 WRX

Milage: 10k miles

EM: Cobb AP stage 1 OTS

Mods: Stock

Fuel: 91 octane

Circumstances: On dyno about to get a stage 1 protune, tuner was getting a baseline did 3 pulls then said something didn't feel right, power dropped off on third pull, no knock events. At idle cylinder 3 was rough, at 2000 rpm cylinder 3 was very rough and the exhaust smelled like rotten eggs.

Actual engine failure: Cylinder 3 ring land failure, catalytic converter clogged or turned.
So you are telling me you blew a motor on a stage 1 tune? and had ringland failure on a FA... Welp... Guess trading the subi in for a evo. Sad to see engines go on stage 1 tunes LOL.
