Guys / Gals,
With all the problems a few members have recently had with Detonation leading to engine damage i.e Melted / Cracked Pistons, Damaged Ring Lands etc. Can any of you Techheads give a laymans explanation of 'Engine Detonation' so that people can recognise the symptoms or warning signs in the event that they are unfortunate enough to experience this.. (We all know prevention is better than the cure!!) There are loads of members on the AOC with tuned turbo engines, and if we can save a few members prized engines by explaning the do's and don't's etc then surely it is a good thing.
I have read some information on the net about Detonation and a lot of it seems so complexed that it went straight over my head!... (Lame excuse I know)
