Fucked up Friday continued: @biggdaddylolo borrowed my compression tester to check out why his Mazda Speed 3 was running poorly. Found a zero. This is what I expected, but even worse. I thought it was a bent valve, but they are broken TF off... Oops. Luckily his pistons still look good, but where'd it the shards go?! Right through the turbine I'd imagine.
He's gonna run a valve cover breather and a catch can, to help keep carbon from building up and damaging the valves do to misdistribution of heat. Carbon retains heat more than the valves and can cause all sorts of thermal damage. A catch can is the first mod anyone should to to their turbo car. Seriously. Absolutely no reason not to. I highly encourage you all to invest in one ASAP, before you damage your engine.
