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.

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.
