Re: Motor damage...... anybody wanna guess who's? (DubberFromCT)

that's what happens when you run it to lean one to many times...
i have been workin on a high rpm miss the last few weeks, finally figured it out, but it cost me a head in the process...
good news, car went 12.38 shifting at 4500 rpm's...picked up a new head with 3000 miles on it, head bolts, gaskets, head gasket and various other items related to it for under 75 bucks...
should be back together this weekend and back tio the track pretty soon...
