Holy shizen! That's jacked up man!! I know you had that stage II procharger and water/meth injection, and vaguely remember your story, but refresh my memory on details.

Do they not have a warranty on their rods?

It was only just one rod so its like 70 bucks. But long story short my car wouldn't start. It would get close then start but quickly shut up. During that process my water/meth somehow shot all 2 gallons at once. Which is the only thing i can think of. Because the day before my car was running great.

That is weird that only one cylinder would get hyrdolocked, but it sounds like the most explanation given the details we have.

Yes it is. I think careful checking of the other rods may be a good idea, what do you think?
