so turns out that my power issues on the puch were due to the fact that about an inch of one of the piston rings had cracked off. i assume it is in the engine. anyone have any tips of being able to flush or shake it out without cracking the engine apart? i have never done that and it scares me a little. i was thinking of bunjee cording it from the pipes in the roof of my garage and trying to dislodge it somehow.
