    So my friends 05 type S developed a knock, he said he ran it out of oil and the low oil sensor didn't kick the light on. Well I know it's either a rod knock or a spun bearing. It's still driveable so I figured it was a rod knock. Well he asked me to rebuild it, and it wouldn't be my first motor...
