    possible Engine Damage SHO

    Hi first post on here I must say this is a really good informative forum
    Anyway back to topic, Ive just suffered what i think is valve failure!. I put my ski into local shop on the 23/11/13 to have low boost wheel installed, reflash and watson racing cooling kit upgrade, 2013 clutch and sprag and riva supercharge shaft kit engine seemed to vibrate more i put this down to the added power also noticed very slight oil on supercharger casing I put this down to the engine sweating with the heat after initial build. Today when cruising at about 4 to 6 thousand revs engine lost power i immediately shut down engine but noticed oil smoke from rear of ski, I got towed back to shore ski has only 6 hrs on it from upgrade any ideas why this would happen is shop to blame?

    Did you run premium fuel and are you monitering A/F with s meter. Fuel pressure regulator and what are the conditions in your area

    Spewin to hear about the problem, but I think even if the shop was to blame your gonna have a shit of a time trying to prove it, I've been there $$$ and it's easier to get blood from a stone. Not with my ski but my car I built, put it on the dyno and then they call saying the gears no longer shift in the auto, get it towed home, box out and back to the guys that built it, they said it was pulled back to 1st gear at a to high rpm and destroyed most of it, go back to the tuners and got told, no warrantys on the rollers plus we wouldn't do a thing like that..

    if you want things done properly do them yourself.

    Did not see a fuel pressure reg. He did not reference any A/F numbers?
