Ok, version two.

1. It is likely he has mechanical problems of an unknown nature, at this time.
2. He has been running 87 octane and doing wide open pulls.
3. Jiffy Lube is his primary mechanical service provider.
4. His only two mods on an otherwise stock car are a BOV and a CAI.

My thesis stands, poor kid is gonna destroy that bugeye. Hopefully were not too late to stop him.
