well on the 13th I was on my way to get new tires on my car and the inevitable happened. The engine finally had all it could take
I mean running a 30r @ 30psi on a stock block is a great idea , right
when the engine let loose it put several holes in the block (front and back) and also took out the oil pan . It then sprayed oil on to , well everything, but the worst place possible my extremely hot turbo/manifold causing
, which burnt the engine harness,alternator,coil/wires,fuel lines,and pretty much anything else that could burn between back of the engine and firewall.......SO I pulled the engine so insurance could inspect the fire damage ....AND they are now totaling my 42,xxx mile car that has NO structural damage ...I mean once I powerwash the engine bay it will just look as if I pulled the blown engine......
So I am now going to buy my car back take the check and BUILD THE SHIT OUT OF IT
I am even considering full cage and tube the front chasis.....
Now here are some of the things I need help with:
-finding a full CF front end(bumper ,hood,fenders) which will be painted so glass will work as well
-sheetmetal intake manifold
-turbo manifold , intercooler pipes , and downpipe so I can mount the turbo where the battery used to live.
- and for all you HIGH HP guys ....which intercooler have you ran at high boost, 30 plus , and not had any problems....
-if anyone has the harness for the engine or any other harness under the hood under the hood hit me up with a pm
Alright guess thats enough for this chapter of the book....Thanks for reading...any advice,help ,or opinions are apprecited
