Blown Engine is now out of the Mazda


What was funny when I called the guy to purchase this car for ChumpCar, he said the motor was making a really loud knocking noise.   But the price was right.   So I bought the car knowing that I'd have to work on the motor and hoped that I could drive it home 7Kms away.   Damn thing blew up 2 blocks from where I bought it.   Ah well.   Buyer beware.    The price was too good to pass up and the car in too good of shape.   Lesson to learn here folks is, keep your undercarriage splash guards on and DON"T install your shiny cold air intake 3" off the ground.  Cause in a heavy rainstorm that air intake becomes a water scoop and sucks copious amounts of water into the intake manifold.   Bad things happen.   "Don't be like Mike."  ;)
