my car died

well today my svt kicked out. the engine has been giving me some issues which have been getting worse and worse as far as not wanting to start from a cold start. compression test showed low compression a few weeks ago on one and two. well since then weekend i have caught major trouble trying to start it and it even gave me trouble when it was warm which befor it hadnt. well today she finally gave up. all she does is turn over. you hear alil bit of a faint combustion here and there but no complete start up. lately ive been suspecting the rings are gone so as ive had to do for the past two mornings i put alil oil in the cylinders which would help it start. well no beans this morning. so she is about to have her engine removed and alil better life breathed in. somethings with the name of JE and eagle will find there way into the block but it wont be over night. as of now im goin to have to drive the old mustang until i get my baby back running. thinking about selling the JRSC and BBK to fund the build and start my future turbo set up. i had the JRSC so i could feel boost without the damage to the engine but i see that it it wont happen. so now its all or nothing, turbo hear i come.

well im doing ok so far with the mustang. power steering sucks ass due to a leaking rack but ill live. kinda fun to drop the clutch and smoke the rear tires down lol. as far as the car goes ima pull the head off the svt and see what the damage is. gonna try to fix this quickly and maybe able to just rehone and new rings.

That sucks to hear the focus crapped out on you. If you sell the supercharger, What are you lookin' to get for it?
