Hello from North of 49th Parallel!

Post by 1V4N » Sun Aug 06, 2017 12:53 am

Hi All!

I'm from Canada! Located north of 49th parallel :)

I've had my 2013 Veloster Turbo since Sept.2012.

Currently as of this writing I have over 103,750KM/65,000miles.

Unfortunately my car decided to give my problems few weeks back. Had to replace the factory alternator with rebuilt, and while at it, I also replaced with new alt belt.

Within a few short days, my engine took a poop. Cylinders #1-#3 all are 150PSI, however Cyclinder #4 dumped and only 50PSI!

Needless to say, I am now looking to rebuild and strengthen the internals with forged rods, pistons, head studs et al.

Thanks to the contributions and the information from the Gamma FB group, I've been able to learn bit more of what needs to be done with the help/suggestions of Bryce, Kyle, Josh and Matthew to name a few.

I hope to learn more and hopefully be able to contribute to this awesome group!

FYI:

I originally had my short block replaced @ 50,000KM/31,000miles due to an incompetent service tech neglecting to refill my oil to sufficient level...fortunately the warranty covered all repairs (all back in January 2015).

Welcome to the forum Ivan, I hate what happened since I know your history with motors, but time to build bigger stronger faster and better. :)
