    Can you say what tuner it is? If not it's okay. Just curious.

    ARGH! I am already over this. I keep researching, and researching, and to do this right, it sounds like there are a ton of things I really need to be buying, that I don't want to!

    I'm sending it in for a compression/leakdown test friday.

    Filled up 2.5qts of oil to make it to the full line. That's how much I lost while it was smoking and I was trying to drive it to a safe place to pull out.
