Suggestions, opinions, help
Ok well when leaving PT (physical training) a friend left behind me today. When we returned for work call he was telling me that he could see blue smoke coming from my exhaust. Well I went and had lunch with my girlfriend later one, she followed me in her car, didnt see anything. After lunch went to my tuners, he took a look, drove it. All he said is I need a tune cause the Cobb Stage 2 is weak (we all know that). Guess Im just wondering what it is. All I can guess is it could be the piston ring(s). That will suck. If it is that, how much would that run? Asked the tuner he said $5000, but I know he was BSing me, he said he knows I dont want just the rings done. If I can afford it I will do the pistons rods, studs and gaskets, depending on the price of parts and install. Just kind of worried about my baby. I did check the oil, its a little low, but Im about 700 miles away from another oil change. Thanks for any and all input.
On a side note, I did buy (and install cause I couldnt wait) the Cobb SRI and heat box. Pretty easy to install. Directly after installing it I went for a drive. It was cool the first two shifts. How the he!! do you guys with BOVs drive? The sound is ridiculous.
