Painful death too.... Engine studdered, then "BANG"... white smoke came out of the exhaust tips... throttle body... and valve covers....Power steering and brakes went dead.  Sad day.. this will NOT be rebuilt :'(

Why do I suspect a valvetrain piece came loose? Retainer?

Because i raced with 14*kr right? 14kr was at part throttle, tool.



Ron... I highly doubt its a piston. I think it is a valve guide or a rocker/retainer... we will see today/tomorrow.

Then why do you always bring it up when talking about racing? You are WOT when racing correct? Dont be mad at me cuz your car keeps breaking and you insist on racing your car even though you know something is not right. But im the TOOL :lolsign: My comment wasnt meant to seem like im saying....Im happy your car is broken. More of a lesson of not to get myself into something I cant handle.(like you) I guess you should have bought that SRT-4 :rolleyes:

edit: Good luck with your car B)

I imagine from the way it was sounding that the rear head let go. at WORST case scenario. valve hit piston........ but I highly doubt it from as little smoke that he said came out of it.

when my piston blew I could see anything, kinda like doing a very smoky burnout for 5 minutes........

ryan, put the new head on. I'll try to be down tomarrow. new parts have arrrived for the z, should be on by tomarrow night.

Ryan, it will be better soon.

SIZE feature, but considering your "post whore" ways, it's expected.

I hope your car breaks even more than it is, and then I will say I'm happy it did.
