Ether and the 6.2

Hey guys.

Here's the thing with Ether. Do not use ether with the 6.5 or 6.2 period. You will cause damage and the engine will become addicted to it over time.

The more you use ether the more damage you will cause as the ether will ignite before the piston reaches TDC, and all that energy must go somewhere, so it tries to push the piston down. Piston down while connecting rod going up = bent rod. The bends are very slight, but it's enough to drop the compression to the point where you'll need ether to start the engine, hence an ether "addicted" engine.

When it comes to ether just say no.

Here's a good video of what Ether does to an engine....
