Problem is that most guys mess with lots 3.0 and 3.2 motors and not turbos. when the turbo comes on, all hell breaks loose back there and lots of noise. I know what detonation sound like from a n/a car, but not turbos. especially flat 6 turbos. I don't do any work on the car. I talk to my regular guy, and he seem to think its fine. that **** scares me. Some say for sure its pinging, some say beat on it and its fine. I think they they hope it blows up and I can go back to them for a 25k rebuild.
