    blown engine???

    hey guys so ive had my rex for about nine months and i flashed cobb stage 1 last night and took my car out for a drive, on my way home my car turned off coming to a stop at a red light. i got it home and right before i got home i heard a knocking noise coming from the engine bay. when i rev it gets louder and faster then when i let the rpms come down to idle it dips under 500 then back up to 800-900 then back down and dies. ive been researching and it sounds like a "spun rod bearing"
    if so does anybody know cost to fix or new engine or rebuild or anything???
    any info will help thanks...

    sorry its not letting me upload. it timed out like 5 times already...but heres the update i talked to my brother in law(mechanic) he said its poopy then showed me the metal in my oil. i didnt notice it when i checked it...he said it might have been a deffected ap cause it was right after the flash that it blew up and he has gotten 2 deffected em systems where he works already and he has only been there like 4 months. so his dad(another mechanic) is doing it all for me for $2000 plus protune. and with a brand new 2.0! it sounds like an awesome deal to me so i was like ok so yea.....oh mods

    well, the BOV might be causing the idling issue. BOV's are known to do that, but i don't know about your engine.

    Good luck with your endeavor. I would just go with the 2.0. That way you don't have to worry about the tranny so much. Let us know how it goes.
