Had I know that porting and polishing were that easy, I would have done that to all my cars ages ago.
Do you suppose it's too late to port and polish my transmission?

That thread is obviously fake flamebait. Nobody is that stupid, and then dumb enough to post about it on the internet with mostly correct grammar.

He should finish it off with a clearance job by dumping a handful of carbide shavings in the crankcase. The story would have been more believable if he said 1 pound of sand. 25 is just absurd.

i really think someone needs to make a fake account and post this in a part of the forum were people look alot. make it sound like this really happened to you or someone you know. that would be so funny. some of the responses would just kill me.

4 Step Process to Repair that engine:

1) remove engine from car OR put entire car into step 2

2) Throw engine/car into this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9JUBBEhrvfc
Note: might not want to bring any gear head friends as they might want to throw you into step two as well as the vehicle..

3) Walk Away.

4) Never Ever Ever Do That Again to ANY car. Ever.




EVER!
