until the rod flys out the side of the block......then you cant run it anymore.

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.

Click the image to open in full size. Click the image to open in full size. Click the image to open in full size. 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 Click the image to open in full size.

Do not drive th car anymore!!!!

Catch a ride, take the bus, ride your bike, walk, take a taxi, but do not destroy your motor so you can get to work.

It's time for a rebuild. Keep us updated.

This has to be the dumbest thread i have read on here. Why would you destroy a perfect block you have to be an idiot. And risking your girl's life what happens if that thing would have caught fire??
