Got a call from my buddy this morning who traded me his SS camaro for my GTO..... well guess last night it started ticking soft..... then got really loud and knocking. blue smoke started coming out of the exhaust and engine revs when u push the clutch in.

Hes tearing it down now were not totally sure what happened. I think he broke a ring/bent a rod of some sort. I feel really bad cuz car was fine when it was traded. any ideas?

on another note. Camaro SS pulled a wheel on the street yesterday. :)

So far..... Valve got stuck in the guide and mashed into the piston. So the piston has a hole. Valve and head are destroyed.

The whole bottom end was 100% stock. The cam was a custom grind, mid 220's duration and like 610ish lift

It had a whole new valvetrain. When he got the heads the new valve that was in it was stuck, sent out to a machine shop and redid a guide. (not the one that seized) And a set of comp springs made for 650 lift were put on.

Were wondering the same thing. We can't figure out what happened. Especially under normal driving

Sounds like an overrev...
Car would go to 6800 and that was where the limited was set. I dunno not my car anymore so not my
Prob. I never had any motor issues with it when I owned it ever. Not a leak or anything
