Awesome car. Why did they pull the engine? Faster for them that way?

For a TT setup, with a new cam, springs, etc. I bet it cuts the time in half to do it out of the car.

Its really not all that hard to pull/drop the engine in these cars.

Yes Sir, you are correct and the engine was out in about a hour. It is all about efficiency at ADM.

Big Worm installed the prototype black out on the tail lights. Looks good and really changes the look of the tail.

Headed off to ADM for repairs. I was conducting a pull on a Dyno while smoothly increasing the throttle a large cloud of smoke came out of the left exhaust at 4800 RPM. The car was shut down and I inspected the oil, spark plugs, and pulled the valve covers to inspect the rockers and springs.

The engine was pulled and Andy confirmed the lifter was bad. All lifters were replaced, engine inspected and was out the same day. I have only see 2 of these and Andy has never seen a bad one.

That's a bummer. Wonder what happened? My Trans Am sounds just like that. I figure it's a lifter. Pulling the head on it after I get the Camaro off the lift. What weight oil are you running?

Had a lifter go out on my Z06 Corvette while driving in traffic. Sounded like a hampster on a rusty wheel.
