    I blowed my engine after modifying it.
    I blowed it again redlining at a stand still for several minutes.
    I blowed it a third time letting it run somewhat "low" on coolant.
    Ford give me hard time try to collect on warranty.

    So don't think your alone.

    Also highlights the POWA of the 2J race intake, lol

    Failing like a QuickBooks update.. I think he's just being a smartass but seriously, a defective head could've contributed to some of these problems. I'm considering an X37 or C39 but my car is part of the recall. I understand the risks of mods, which is why I switched to the Fiesta. I can actually afford to blow this motor ha! But if the majority of failires came from 14-15 FiSTs I'll pass on the turbo and continue down the cooling path until I'm ready for a proper motor build.
