This answers the question of the expression "washed" as in my head got washed out when the gasket let loose...

This is repairable, and it will be, but these are not going back on Brandi... The New LSA heads are in the shop....

Holy shnikees! That looks like toast, but I guess if its repairable ....Now I understand what washed out is when applied to machined surfaces Not cool that it happened to you, but like you say, when you're involved in this kind of stuff, things are bound to break and it leads to better and stronger parts. thanks for keeping us newbs in the loop Robert

Sorry to read about your troubles at the mile but at least you were able to make a run plus you will be back harder.

thanks brother... It was amazing fun and I truly appreciate the support from Camaro5 the site, and the members, those online and those that made the trip down here... Great people...

damn right it is... I was within an 1/8th mile of having it, but you gotta finish to get it...


to all those that helped and supported in any form or fashion...
You need the 300MPH speedo.

?Good choice on the LSA heads. They hung in there at 16psi when the engine let go on the my last dyno.

Wow, thanks for the kind words...

I always appreciate the support and comments on Camaro5. Such good people... I was blessed to have lots of support at the Mile run...It makes it easier to face the tribulations... and in the big scheme of things...I didn't have but a little set back...

You're correct, I'll be back at the mile and Brandi will be stronger...

I think you might have a slight advantage. I would just like to be inside that beast and experience the rush.
