Default There goes that piston

I was taking a trail down here in south Florida when I came to a big water pit. After walking in the water to check dept I decided to go for it. Long story short I slipped into a buggy rut and sucked in water ending up in a bent rod and a chipped piston. It cost $500 in parts to fix so all and all not bad. Since then I got 315/70r17 ATs and a new K&N intake.

Yea out engines don't get along well with water. I had a friend with a Trans Am that had a true CAI and he was driving home where a dip got flooded and he didn't see it. Endless to say instantly needed a new engine.
