This shit happens so quickly I can't pay attention!! The car spins so much lately I just stay in it and it'll hook eventually. It doesn't usually end by blowing up.

Where was the window switch set to bud? You usually want to keep that at (Or a hair above) the shift point and a couple hundred RPM before the limiter, just in case of an over-rev or a spin. Also if your throttle is closing the TPS would drop below WOT set point and also kill the nitrous...

And its a Maggie with nitrous.. Bump that compression up buddy you run straight race gas anyways.. high 10s, to 11:1 sounds like a good number.

Things just happen too quickly out there, good luck with the new setup bud you'll be running again before you know it

I'm not sure where all that stuff was set. I think it was a perfect storm of shit that happened in an instant. The blade closed but it didn't look like the TPS ever changed.

Agreed. Your window WOT switch should have prevented this.


Also, why mill the heads at all when you are getting new pistons just order the ones you need for the compression you want.

I'm assuming coated pistons.
No problem. Fixed my post btw.

Agreed. On the piston's, the milling was just incase we couldn't get the piston's we wanted or needed to get the compression right. I'm not sure what's on the shelf and what would need to be made.

........ HI......





You know, you could always buy Chris' (VanquisherSS) car. I'm pretty sure he would sell it to you cheap. or for spare parts.

In all seriousness, I'm glad you finally know what the hell happened and that you have some sort of jacked up plan, sort of, right now. I hope it all works out, and I'm sure it will.

On the lighter side, just let me know, I can come up to CT and cart your ass around for some gas money and food.

We've done it bunches.... we only run the primary o2 sensor though, no cats.... I'll say that blowing up turbos is harder on them than c-16
