Those kind of things happen when you are running 3 turbos feeding on each other and putting out 100lbs. of boost. Pull the pin on that grenade!

You could do it this way too; 8,600 through the lights with a stock crank:



Since everything went out the bottom the Very good heads were fine. My friend found two pitons in the wrong holes.

Why spend the money on very good heads and aluminum rods but not upgrade the crank.....??

Oh yea, that's a dandy, and the ride trying to drive over the block (pieces).

'Course, that little Ford (if I recall Sleeper's picture correctly from the first time I saw it) had to be one heck of a sound too. ;)

Upgrading the crank seems to be a no-brainer in that case.

Apparently a "no-brainer" did not think so. ;)

Friend who purchased the car the guy who sold it to him said it had a few part's that didn't appear under closer inspection.

He was over doing it a tad at 8,600.

I like the thick steel scatter shield plate on the side of the engine, and the hit it took. Imagine where those pieces would have ended up!

I was talking to a guy last weekend that runs a all aluminum blown alochol small block in a sand car his quote was "Its amazing how much shit breaks in 60 feet" Classic line I thought.
