Looks like it could be MAP sensor related or vacuum leak. Hopefully it is nothing more serious like lost compression due to other internal issues. Best of luck.

So im assuming that the dealership got the rig running bc they now hear a squeal that i have been complaining about. They said it is not the water pump but will get the pump replaced under warranty.
The confusion lies when the Dealership said i might have a bad engine bearing. WTF does that mean. I have ported heads, cam, and upgraded valvetrain.

Update... dealer never got her running. They replaced the map sensor and not the problem. They hear a clanking in the motor and are currently opening her up.

Would this be a good time to forge her up while shes open. I know the costs of the pistons and rods. Is there anything else i should consider? Maybe replacing the crank to do a 6.1 base 392?

Damn man. Hope nothing major. Hey if you have the money, I would go ahead and forge if you plan to boost.
