And since now it's running on all cylinders the cylinders that were "wounded" are now low on compression and burning oil. And by the way i am no mechanic I as well just dick around with cars as a hobby I got an old ramcharger I built from the ground up. And I'm not to knowledgable on all the new electronic engines.. What I was saying is just how it makes sense to me
Hey dodgeboy I appreciate the explanation since I didn't understand initially. I had an old monte carlo & swapped in a 4.3 v6 to replace the original one that took a crap. The money was the issue at the time so I went a real cheap route & picked up a 4.3 from a boat yard that I worked at. I swapped the intake but not the cam from my old 4.3. It was an old tbi motor. The computer wasn't reading her right so she was dumping fuel in at a higher rate due to a boat making more use of higher rpm. I never did anything to compensate & wham the engine blew due to the fuel washing them cylinders down at a faster rate. So I get it now. Sorry I was such a dumb ass. I forgot old cliffs original threads where he mentions the truck miss firing & the plugs being all fouled up. Yea & in regards to cliffs dilemma. I too feel the tuner is the culprit if so I wonder who else has had issue w/ theirs, bully dog or diablo?
