So pretty sure after the sled pull thurs for the DPC we fried a piston so we got the truck home finally today and started the tear down process, first got the glow plug out and it was pretty f'd up and next we got the injector out from cyl#1 and that was all gunked up, so tomorrow we are going to get the heads off and see what kind of damage is done
Basically it was my fault for trying to shift from second to third while spraying, i hit a bump mid pull and slipped up to N and slammed it back to third and sprayed the second stage finishing my pull, not really the best idea, but oh well, just time to improve on what i got lol
