Is this what you're referring to?#3 has carbon tracking. That's the spark going through the path of least resistance and spark not happening in the combustion chamber, thus the misfire.
Once the times don’t suck, I’ll get them posted. I have to get launching down. That is really killing my time.Don’t be a tease. Let’s see some times.
Sorry Diggs, I wrote #3 for cyl 3 with a sharpie on the insulator.... There's no issue there. Any other ideas
Damage is already done I guess so it might be a dumb question, but what does that mean for the longevity of the motor?pistons on 1 and2 dont look healthy

Just did an oil change 1k ago and I always take a look in the filter and didn’t see anything there.Means you’re lucky, because worse detonation results in the rod bearings leaving the chat or worst case a rod bending or breaking.
You can pull the oil filter, hold it over a white sheet of paper and cut it open (unroll it) so any chunks fall onto the paper. If there’s bronze bearing material in there that’s when you worry/make plans to rebuild or replace.
dude after all that.. fuck LOLlol. well then its time to delve deeper. a retune with less boost down low, carbon cleaning and injector replacement would be in order. pistons on 1 and2 dont look healthy
