    A few questions

    What can cause a valve to drop?

    And also

    How reliable will my ski be after adding all these mods? (stage 1, intake manifold upgrade, free flow exhaust)


    Thanks much

    You ski will be fine after those mods, nothing your doing will affect reliability.


    You can "drop" a valve by snapping/breaking one off due to poor manufacting and/or cheap valves or a engine condition called Knocking (also called knock, detonation, spark knock or pinging) in spark-ignition internal combustion engines occurs when combustion of the air/fuel mixture in the cylinder starts off correctly in response to ignition by the spark plug, but one or more pockets of air/fuel mixture explode outside the envelope of the normal combustion front. The fuel-air charge is meant to be ignited by the spark plug only, and at a precise time in the piston's stroke cycle. The peak of the combustion process no longer occurs at the optimum moment for the four-stroke cycle. The shock wave creates the characteristic metallic "pinging" sound, and cylinder pressure increases dramatically. Effects of engine knocking range from inconsequential to completely destructive. It should not be confused with pre-ignition (or preignition), as they are two separate events.

    Peace,
