    Carnage really isnt too bad thank god. Bent a rod and broke some of the piston off. Happened while testing my n2mb wot box and missing a shift. Engine started ticking right after, limped it home and parked it for about a month till I had time to trailer it to the shop.


    Anyways the engine is getting Manley rods and pistons. Im keeping the stock crank since I dont plan on surpassing 600whp. Heads will be staying stock except they will be getting timeserts so I can stop worrying about my plugs every time I change them. Once I upgrade my fuel system Im going to shoot for around 500whp maybe more and Ill be happy. That wont be for a while due to other priorities.

    Damn that sucks. Didn't you just put the blower on? Im glad that you managed to not put a window in the block!

    This is exactly why Im forging the bottom end WHILE putting on the blower. Those pics send chills down my spine.

    I had the Kenne Bell on for about a month or two. Before that it was boosted with my Saleen Series IV for about 10k miles but made 50 less hp and 30 less tq at the wheels.
