    The latest shenanigans in South Louisiana

    So my piston decided it didnt want a Conrod to love it anymore... so #2 rod went out the block (RIP) . anyway i had bought a 2006 tundra a few weeks before and did all my preventative maintenance so at least i can daily that.

    i have a few thoughts in my head . i am fairly certain the engine gave up because i used engine tech pistons. the sealed powers i had in the build before cracked all the skirts (made noise but no conrod went out the block).

    so... piston options:
    mill down a 2nd gen forged piston for use w/ a 3g rod? i want an NA build . i am not doing any forced induction.
    mill down a 2nd gen hyper stock piston ... not sure if ill have the same issue as the sealed powers though ... HMM
    custom piston?

    i have time on my side since i have two backup cars thankfully. i would love to daily my turd again.

    also:I've had a CEL for random misfires for two years or so but it never ran... bad that being said...someone else fixed it by nothing but CKP relearn but i have no means of doing so. no one here has a tech II, i narrowly escaped getting wallet-raped by a stealer ship for it. are there any established methods asides from dumping the stock computer for an after market EMS for solving this?

    cheers... maybe i can build the car for the dragon next year (as long as my AC works )
