Long Story going to keep it short. Cause the long version is like 15mins long.

I've got a SE-R Throttle Body its bigger does a lil on response and lil hp maybe... Well my motor just got back from its 4th most recent build and was running good. Just good well... leave it at that.

Screw from butterfly flap one of two came off into motor = Bad. (fucking freak of nature)

Cylinder one = No compression. Also bad.

Three cylinders firing hard and strong (well good) = Surprising.

I was really mad at my car again... = Rev Limit 30sec. 6947k

Still running. = Laughing now.

Unplugged cylinder 1 fuel injector and took out sparkplug wire. = Still running.

Rev limit 20sec again on 3 cylinders. = nothing.

Pissed and upset that this happened. = My motor is cursed.

2nd gear 50mph slowing down, Dropped into 1st Gear around 40-45mph = 8081k RPM

Final thoughts... well its going to get a look at with a telescopic camera tomorrow and see if it’s a valve or the piston.

How about.... No valve float after the 8k surprise I gave it and I still drove like another 10mins and it was running strong as it could for only running three cylinders.

Pics from my S-AFC to show it’s true.

I can crank it right up on the three cylinders and it'll drive down the road sputtering... Damn GA16DE's can take a beating.

::::::::UPDATE:::::::::

Well I got in my car today cranked it up on my 3 cylinders and drove away....15 miles to my mechanic. Got there took out my Cylinder one spark plug and wouldn't you know it... the damn thing was beat to shit. So no spark no, no fire........no fire no boom. While we had it out we looked at the cylinder walls and they don't have any scaring on the walls and just a little on the top of the piston. I may have a little damage in the valves but we haven’t checked them yet. I bought a new spark plug and put it in and just cranked right up and sounded fine.

Pics of the plug.

uhm...so why were you beating on your engine if you knew something was wrong with it? i understand the frustration, but wouldn't it have been better to try and fix it?

Short moment of insanity. But gladly a test to how strong my recent build was... I told my mechanic and he's like we finally get one that we can't break. None the less its fine now even if it was a bad move on my part.

A friend of mine did something simular, changed down and over reved the engine to an English car and the head blew off, taking the hood with it.
Not a recommended procedure even when upset at the car !!!
