Pictures of the carnage:












(Wonder how that ballences now?)









Broke the Block (1st cap sheered off), front cover, a couple pistons, bent some pushrods and took 3 or 4 valves with it.

Soon H/C NA motor, maybe later some Turbo's

Jeezus, Paul told me about the carnage but the pics are crazy. Adam wants to go turbo now, right? I'm assuming he'll find a shortblock and throw his existing heads and cam and run the piss out of it, then do the turbo later, sound about right?

Man that sucks, I guess you are on borrowed time though pushing that much power through a stock bottom end.

He should look into going with a 331 stroker, big heads, and a healthy cam. My one buddy made almost 400 rwhp NA. It is down right nasty!
