I'm glad I didn't end up going. My car is very sick. Barely made it home, having to constantly restart the car.

E30 with S52 shot something out the exhaust and it was game over on the way home. No compression on all six cylinders and no hint of combustion. Aluminum chunks in the intake plenum. we were thinking timing chain snapped or skipped. Full diagnose to come

WHAT?? The s52 blew up?? Oh shit.

Sorry we were douchey and bailed.. I was so hungry and was already getting tired. I went for a short drive after food and went home. I had lowered the front end earlier in the week and realized on the drive that its too low, so I measured when I got home.. I have 2" of rake lol. So I'm going to raise the front 1.5".. should help hah.

Good idea (the cruise) so let's do another but this time I'll eat first.

Yea it was fun. We cruised maybe 60-70 on the way up. Then ripped it coming back down lol.

No news on what exactly happened inside the engine?
