    First off let me say that it was not the tune that doomed her or the boost, we made 6 pulls all fine no fuel issue.... 526rwhp/535rwtq....14.5lbs of boost... Oil pump **** the bed @ 5500rpm by the time 6000 came around on the dyno the engine AND the turbo locked up... heads and cams are toast, the crank gone.. Only thing that is usable is the block, rods and pistons. New turbo, built bottom end, heads and cams coming soon, thats all I can say for now.:shrug:

    Dang dude, that blows (no pun intended). I was literally getting ready to send you a PM to see if you wanted to go down to Fayetteville tomorrow.

    Oh well, at least now I know that I will never have any chance versus you with my NPI-powered beast, lol. You still gonna DD it after the new motor build? If so, that is going to be one NASTY driver! :nice:

    It sucks, I was getting it ready for the track, it made 520+ in back to back runs on 93oct. Last run for 93 to make sure it was ready for the street, after that pull we were going to do the 110 race gas tune.. :nonono:Im looking at picking up a new ford fiesta or focus this week for my new DD till I get the cash for the rebuild.

    that sucks, i've seen it happen a few times on the 4.6

    hard to believe it ruined everything so quickly. usually takes a little more time with no oil for that to happen

    How many miles on the stock pump? That's too bad man, sorry for that but with a built block that thing is going to be evil. Because of you, I want a turbo.. stupid California would make me have to take it off every 2 years to smog though. Might be worth it

    What he said.

    Sorry to hear about that, man. I was terrified of something like that happening to my brand new motor, so I plunked down the cash for a TSS billet oil pump. You can get them from Modular Head Shop, if you're interested.

    Yep the stocker, 130,000+ miles on it. I just had the timing chains out and should have replaced it when I had the chance. On a lighter note the car did make over 500hp:rlaugh:

    Im looking into getting the TSS or the MMR pump. Its going to be a few months before I get the cash to rebuild it, but my goals are a 550-650 street car.

    Sorry to hear that! How long will you be out of the game for? Can't wait till you get it back together. Sick Car! I just picked up an 01 zx3 focus and I love it. Looks great with nice wheels and a tad lowered :). Also get an average of 31mpg mixed highway and city.

    Congratulations to you guys.

    Sucks it **** the bed, but it seems like you're going to make it better... just a little, haha.

    This thread is inspiring. I'm in the middle of deciding on keeping my GT, turning it into the long-term project (long periods of downtime, putting money into it I really shouldn't be putting into it, breaking stuff, etc.) or selling for a newer Mustang... but this thread makes me want to keep it and go for my original goal of a nice single turbo setup.
