CLOSED throttle..ALWAYS . Use the ignition interupt toggle switch.....crank it, 1-2-3 count and throw the spark switch on ,,,. fire it up and then rev it, to clear it. Clear it ,, then let it idle.
Real simple.... No computer required.
Computers are for porn searching.... even in Spain. Didn't any body tell you that?
Not know a single one of you boys on this thread but thought I had best chime in . . . . . .
Mustang 671, in watching this thread, I think that F-bird is just trying to make sure you are aware of some of the stuff that he has knowledge of.
I have not seen anything he posted that was not correct.
You have a lot of "bells and whistles" on your rig that, for sure, will create a bunch of headaches and destroyed parts if not careful.
The "hyper vs. forged" decision is liable to give you pin bosses pulled out of the pistons, seen too many of them happen that way. And a huffer will really put lots of heat into the crown / ring pack area, adding to the problem.
He suggested changing the oil, most likely because it sounded like the raw fuel has most likely gone past the rings and thinned the oil.
Look . . . . , nobody wants to see you have problems with your ride. But you seem to be sort of hard-headed to fixing the possible issues you are seeing.
So . . . . . just how far of a road trip is this Spain you write of???
Take care, K
