New engine is blown, and so is the trans.....New Damage Pics

and I'm f*#king done!!


Was told today the the number 8 piston needs to be replaced and the trans is slipping bad in 1st gear. Don't know the extent of the trans damage yet because it was not opened up.


Car was fantastic on the dyno. Struggled to make 4 passes last Friday. Got the stabilitrak and check engine light mid pass on run 4. Shut it down as fast as I could.


Simply posting this as to many like to know what's going on. Well, here's exactly what's going on.


This is the plug that was taken out. It still a ZR1 plug.

Currently gathering my thoughts on what to do next.

The car will be fixed but right now I'm 50/50 on it ever seeing the track.

Take it easy on the NOS,and have fun with it.
It comes a time that 2 much HP and torque cost more $ than what it's worth.
Theirs nothing wrong with a high 9-low 10 second car that you can drive anywhere.

It's still with Nick over at ARH being used to prototype parts. Should be done in a couple more weeks. We had it for 2 days amd my dad was using it then.

You're probably right. Ever since the nitrous it's been eating plugs and breaking.

Sorry to hear. :(

I'm in a similar boat: hung around in Indy to get in one last run so I could win an extra $100. Hit it hard and broke the diff, then come home to find my EWP is leaking. So that $100 will cost me $5000 for a DSS 9".

I have the same question: build it stronger and better, only to go out, beat on it and break the next thing? It's not in my nature to not run hard, so it's a tough thought.

Fuel pressure dropped to 49 on a few occasions. I'd believe you to be correct but I don't know enough to make any assumptions.

On the dyno the fuel pressure was very good, averaged about 65 and never going below 60.

Might be a stupid question.When you run it at the track,i'm guessing you log,but do you also log the AFR aswell?

Yes log, no on the AFR. My father just asked the very same thing. Wouldn't have made any difference. By the time I saw anything bad it was to late.

I can't answer that but I would think 16 psi, 125 nitrous and meth would be a driving time bomb. Or at least a bitch to tune.

Sucks to hear.

If you want to run deeper into the 9s I would do a combo that makes power easier instead of something being wrung out for every last pony. Swap a TT or Ysi on there and run mid/low 9s with ease instead of the maggie/n2o.

You should have one.
My daily driver supercharged Avalanche has one,I log often,and that's the first thing I look at is the AFR.
But yes,when your running that much boost and NOS on top,things cam happens VERY quick.

Didn't you just rebuild the motor after the fest because of the same issue?

I am very disappointed and disgusted with this outcome, trust me.

I'll be making major changes in the future.

Sucks to hear this. A few things I have learned on this crazy HP journey.....
For one thing, a dyno pull is nowhere near as hard on things as a full run. I have experienced where everything looks great on the dyno, and then on a full pass fuel pressure drops, temps are higher, afr's can get wacky. The best thing is to log full passes starting with easy runs and working to full throttle runs to make sure everything is good.
This season, I drove my car almost daily, with never any issue at all. Nothing... but every time I went to the track, I broke something. I am starting to consider keeping my car a fun 10 second driver, and maybe get something else just for the track if I get that bug next year. A dedicated track car can be put together with different considerations, and not be so sensitive.

Sorry to read this... Hopefully whatever you do next is less of a headache. I'm trying to piece together everything to supercharge mine and be safe. Of course it's no where near what your car was making.
