Either way, sucks man. Stock rods?

Well, at least you know why it was tapping, and you know why. That really sucks.

Is the 242 running ?

look for somethink crashed or ,this may sound stupid, but maybe somebody can shaved down crank and rebalance it, I mean whole crank so you will gain couple horses and get rid of the problem

how are main bearings looking ?

jeez, change your oil, it's black!

that sucks about the rod tho, rebuild, improve.

I drive 100 miles a day, so I try to run it out to about 5-6k miles between changes. If I change my oil every 3k miles, I'll be changing it like every month. I had about 5k on this.

wow ... sucks ... so what mods and boost pressure were you running when it did this? and knock or you think just excessive CC pressures?

Still not sure what happened. had an over boost situation w/ fuel cut etc, a few days before this happened, on the way home from work car never saw anything over 14psi. It was knocking when I got out to get the mail. Only thing I can think of is I was in 5th gear at a low RPM going up a hill w/ boost rising. Car slightly stumbled, so I'm thinking it happened then. My AFRs were all fairly rich, around 11:1-12:1. It was also VERY cold that day, about 12*F.
