Well we couldn't figure out why Pitch Black wasn't making more power so Bob came over last night and did a compression test and leak down test and, well, the poor thing is very sick.

#1 88psi
#2 91psi
#3 90psi
#4 100psi
#5 93psi
#6 108psi
#7 93psi
#8 119psi

Leak down was 28%.

So we are starting again. Motor is coming out next weekend for a checkup and some interesting changes.

Thanks to all who have helped me.

Frustrated, BUT DETERMINED!

PS.....Before people from other boards start making assumptions, I want to stress that this is not in any way related to Nitrous. This truck has never had any nitrous run in it.

Definitely not good news. If it makes you feel any better my trans is messed up from a local shop trying to add a shift kit. :D

Greg,

Sorry to hear about your beast being sick :(

I know you'll get her back up and running and even stronger than ever!

Now's the time to start taking names because when your beast comes back its gonna hand some assess out! :D

Thanks everyone for the kind words. We will pull it this weekend if all goes well. My first guess is the rings since it is every cylinder, and I would assume that somehow it leaned out or detonated. Whatever it is I'm sure that it is a result of something I did wrong. I'll keep everyone infromed. Like I say, the brite side is I can go ahead and make the changes that I wanted to make now instead of later.
