Well We knew it was to good to last

We got the new RPS tripple disc Street Slayer Clutch installed and my friend just finished the 500 mile break in on the clutch but there will be no runs at the strip any time soon. Today on the way back from lunch with less than 100Yard till his parking spot the engine started knocking. We knew she was never going to live at this power level and had already started making plans for a LSX with a 4 leter supercharger but we thought she would die at the track not in the parking lot. So today Brandon got to join the " wrecked an engine with less then 10k on the odo".

I told him to cheer up and not look at it as a loss because now the gloves come off and we can put a real monster in the car.

With so many CTS-V owners in the 700s with no issues I'm scratching my head on this one.

The car has made as high as 752 and as low as 728 RWHP and it has been otwo different dynes many times now. It has never sprayed nitrous through the inner cooler while on the dyno.

The car is going to the shop tomorrow morning and there will not be much to see because it is just rod knocking.

The problems we had where with traction control and torque management, as far as air fuel ratio, timing, fuel trims, that was all great.

The car has been at LMR and Power Fab, it has been on both Dynos.


We had issues with all the different torque management systems pulling timing and controlling the throttle body blades. Before we got it all figured out the clutch burned up and we had to wait for a new clutch. We just got the new clutch last week and they wanted a 500 mile break in before we went back to the track.

Like I said before we new that we where pushing the factory internals and that they would not last long but we figured we would get enough time to at least get the new motor built.

For a new engine we are looking at the LSX but that new 502ci LS block is also pretty exciting. 502 LS-sleeved and stroked

Strange that the rod started knocking during a 500 mile break in period where it wasn't being run hard.

I guess the silver lining is it will be bullet proof when you're done. Can't wait to follow this build.
