Damn! Another motor down. Noticed cranking was sounding a little long in the tooth, so did a compression test to verify. One, Two, and Four had 120psi which I thought seemed kind of low, Cylinder 3 was only pumping 90.

I'm debating getting rid of the emanage and doing a wire merge to open source tune, or just throwing another set of pistons at it and keep going. The bottom end still sounds fine. This will be the third time I've had to pull this motor to replace pistons though. Another part of me wants to put it back to NA, I am bit by the boost bug though.
