As most of you know or dont know I had my motor go out for the second time, this time It was low about 6 qts of oil (yes i filled it up I know because you dont forget at 5 bucks a quart) Anyway it is in the process of being fixed, (lucky me I have some kind of warrenty out there) they pulled the motor out and put the new one in, and now they pulled the old motor apart to find out what happened, well all they can find is the #3 piston is a little loose, but no other damage, they were expecting to see that it came apart and hit the heads or something, but like i said NOTHING... so ya new motor = good.. they are also doing a new clutch plate, i guess mine was on its way out...

Thought I would share the update.

Wow.. if it's all taken care of.. that is a sweet deal. Most dealers would have turned you away, or given you a real hard time just for the mods you do have.

Congrats.

Thats the only reason I contacted this dealer, they race so they know whats up with the modifications, I went to one dealer for something totally unrelated to the mods, they took one look at the truck and said nope no warreny...

Did you rip a hole in your oil pan? I don't know any other way to get 6 quarts low. :eek:
