Wow I can not believe it has been over 8 months since I have driven her Sept 29th to be exact . Story goes I was meeting up with the Calgary crew early in the morning for our 1st Flatlands Exotic car show, we were all to drive in together. On the way there we hit some pretty good speeds for an extended period of time, long story short my Hyperflow cat was clogged and disintegrating causing huge back pressure eventually heating up the #1 piston so much I had pre ignition and thus burning a hole in my piston . Talk about devastation, but I remained very optimistic through out my ordeal.
For those of you who do not know the story here it is, it's full of heartache and betrayal with twists and turns as the plot thickens to the climax of devastation ha ha ha.

Well I am very very glad to say it is over with, I feel I made out pretty good considering the alternative of a full rebuild. The car has more HP now as I am running CAT less and the sound is frightening but devilishly satisfying . We took our time to make sure all was done correctly and better than Ferrari specs, we found other faults along the way and corrected them and even ended up with a Uber cool coffee table lol.
Shout out again to my Mechanic Cal for taking on this project, I had full confidence in their abilities, he and his boys were awesome, great job guys. Also Heeeeey to Daniel and the boys at Ricambi for fast services and great advise, also GT auto parts for my engine thanks boys.
She is PURRRRRRRRING like a bad Kitty that has swallowed shards of glass , It feels different to me now, more solid more reliable hard to explain really. Of course this is only the second day and we need to keep an eye on it but so far she is a rocket and I am Captain Kirk baby (earlier Kirk when he was cool and slept with green women ) lol
Here are some pics of my new engine, as you can see I tried a color combo that no one has tried yet, I love it, pictures do not do justice, looks 10X better in person. Now when I open up the bonnet people gasp at how good it looks, it is a piece of art .
