    Poll: How many have blown a FiST engine?

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    This is just for information purposes only. There seems to be a lot of false information being spread in the fiesta community.

    Simple poll, either yes or no. If you would like to elaborate by filling us in on why the motor blew, who was tuning it, how much horsepower you were making, that would be helpful..



    For me, the answer is no. I'm tuned by Deadhook, currently making 380whp +/- a few HP. Car runs great.




    ***i don't know how to set up a poll, can a mod or admin please make two options. Yes and no. Thanks ***

    Yes.... sort of's.

    #1 cylinder head cracked. Garbage ford cylinder head casting.
    #2 blown head gasket. Totally my fault. Tuned to 360whp on meth and pump gas, then tried to do a pump gas tune, but keep over 315whp and.... it was a bad idea. Lol.

    Yes.
    45,500 miles Stock turbo tuned on e30 by Tune + till 44,000 miles swapped in x37 on 91 and e30 tuned by Tune+ a week before I started tuning on 100 octane with DHM my engine had a misfire and wrench thrown. Turned car off started back up light went away and no more misfires (this should have been my first clue) started tuning with DHM and on the third revision the engine was toast. I don't blame any tuner but more the abuse that I put my engine through with all the tracking and mountain runs. Cracked cylinder three piston with making a Max of 280hp on e30 with tune + the DHM tune never got a chance to get above 260hp

    Unfortunately it did blow. But I swear it was from the fire. When I pulled over cause it overheated the electrical harness had caught fire. It melted a sensor on the engine that I'm pretty sure is responsible for the detonation that occurred. I was e30 stock downpipe, stock turbo, cobb stage 2w/ cat back. Tune+

    I don't really want to derail this thread, or maybe this is on topic. But please tell me more, or is there a thread about this?
