what is still kinda nuts to me is that I never had a problem with the headgasket or head bolts... more on that when I finally tear the motor down.

that's actually what I was asking brice the other day...he says he makes nice HG or whatever...dunno if that's needed?
so how long did you actually drive that stock motor?
time span of 490whp on 20mm pins...

Beautiful, isn't it...

Too bad I just pulled it out or one of the boxes of broken rods I have, from all of the motors I have blown up...

anything is possible...
and you didn't SRENGTHEN/MAGNAFLUX those "STOCK" rods?

You know, the funny thing about this, is that I have the rod cap too... and it is perfect. Absolutely perfect... I think the problem with this wasn't so much that the rod broke, but the rod bolts let go... that would explain the hole in the oil pan, the perfect rod end cap, and all of the ensuing destruction....
The last motor that let go, and pretty much all the other guys I have seen that posted pics of blown motors, all still had the rod attached to the crank. interesting....

wow man you deff. got connections to get JC to bless them rods!
Usually the biggest reason most rods give is the rod bolts not the rods themselves...as I am sure you know...and I am one of those people with a blown block with my rod big end on the crank still...

your's looks bent at the big end though (oval shape tells me that)..due to the pressue it received...so your rod bent...vs. mine broke/shattered

Well shoot me in the foot. I guess I'll just have to find out.


I already told you that...I'll take picts tonight or tomorrow when I get to the garage...but you can shave them down and make them work is what I was saying...NM

you mean to tell me you have never heard of the RED-X line of billet, forged, cast rods? man, wtf Val. it combines the properties of a cast rod, forged rod, and a billet rod all in one.
hell even those cast carbide composite coated rods too...



that's the hottest secret I never knew about...PM me about it
we'll chat!
