today is a bad day for this evo owner....

driving along the road with a porche coming up rapidly behind me went to give him a shock i.e. hopefully leave him sittin or at least edge him out when f*ck... smoke p1ssin out the back of the evo and no power.... pulled over ....bonnet up.... dipstick out ....oil everywhere.....RAC man cometh... pressure test cylinders... no pressure in no.4 cylinder + no tip on spark plug......

my verdict holded a piston :cry:

tow truck came :help:

arrive at garage ..goes to let car off flat bed and lets it roll back into a big van :imwithst:

breaking both tail lights and dentin the tailgate :rucrazy:

think i need a drink tonight to numb the pain :blah:
