I don't see how a chain caused those marks on the cam and lifters either. You might have experienced the same failure many of us have. What oil was used for your road race events?

Also, those...

It will probably have the TT v6 but I also would have liked to see a LT1 and maybe even a super V world killing luxury performance coupe with a LT4.

No, you can get a 2010+ 2SS or 2011+ Mustang GT premium with those kind of miles for less than $24k. Both of those cars are a much better car than a 08 SRT8 for even less money than they are asking....

While sending oil samples to be tested is a good it still won't help if the damage is done instantly. I'm sure some failures happened instantly with no wear prior.

I think the dragon slayer is a good option for a supercharged build in the 3.825 or 3.90. Can't remember exactly which medium stroke. It comes out to somewhere between a 396-400ci on a LS3 block. AES...

High IAT's will pull power on a NA car. The difference isn't as much as a FI car but if a CAI advertises 15RWHP and high IAT's from the design pull enough timing to retract 10RWHP then that's not a...
