yeah my type r motor just got the early sounds of rod knock, but i got to get to work. It still got all its power and you can barely here hit but i know its going to get worse. How long can i get a way with this?
On a type R??? honestly even if that was my primary form of transportation i would shut it off and not start it until it is fixed so you do not do anymore damage. A type R is worth too much money to keep driving. You would be better off buying a POS daily driver than driving on the motor and risking it blowing up.
right now you are looking at replacing the bearings, possible crank, possible rods.....if you keep driving you will probaly have to replace the entire motor including the head....catch a ride unless you have some deep pockets
