Here's the damage and the plan to rebuild

Since I jacked my other read thread up with a bunch of yahoo's I'll just make a new one. Chances are this will be jacked up again but what else is new!!




They got the motor pulled and torn apart this am. It does look like then when the car hit the limiter hard, the tb closed and forced the nitrous to pack up in the intake tube. When the tb opened back up all the nitrous ran in and was dumped in the first two cylinders it found.

It melted the one piston and started to crack the second. Some of the metal jumped over to the other side of the engine and marred up a piston over there. It also melted some metal into the cylinder wall where the piston was burnt up the worst. After cleaning the metal we found the it did leave an indentation in the sleve. The rest of the engine looked fantastic and still new.

Now what to do. It makes no sense to resleeve this block. That combined with all the machining needed to get it ready just makes financial sense to me. Ted opted to go with an ERL superdeck, stock cubes. The only setback may be the lead time on the block. TBD. The rods I have, Eagle (http://texas-speed.com/p-441-eagle-h...000-bolts.aspx), still look brand new. Not even any bluing. If they, along with the stock crank, check out, they will get reused. We'll need new pistions and that's about it.

The stock heads are fine but will more than likely be milled to bump the compression. The current calculated compression is 9:7.1. I guess Ted is going to dig up the whistle test(?) to get the exact number. So that will get bumped along with changing fuel from 104 to C16 which makes my life easier since the GN is also on C16.

Just add in an LPE nitrous controller and that's about it. It'll be back to the track and see what it'll do.:happyanim:

Thanks! I will sent this info to Ted. It's out of my hands now. I'm just doing PR and finance.:facepalm:


I'm assuming coated pistons.

So...your TPIS TB closed and caused this? Did I read that correctly?

Good luck with the rebuild

It closed because the car broke the tires loose bad at 100' and it revved to almost 7400. It hit the limiter hard and the car shut the tb to protect itself. The car needs to protect it self from the driver more often!


Nothing to do with the TPIS. It's been money all along.

Turbo99 08-13-2013 08:30 PM

LOL, I got it! I was waiting for the slamming shut TB saga to open up on TPIS. Good to hear you have no clue how to lift...lol
