The beast is sick and dying a slow and painful death :( , only because I want a few more miles out of it :rolleyes: I could give it a quick, driver assisted death if only I were not so attached to the monster :love: The car has been diagnosed with an incurrable disease :bawling: , the only thing that can save the engine is for some major organ transplants :eek: Needless to say, I knew this day was coming, but you can never really be prepared for such devastating news :surprise: :doubt: . It will be hard driving Frankenstang around these last few days, knowing that it only has a few more RPM's left :( I do not know if it would be better to give it one last big shot of boost and giggle juice to go out in a blaze of glory, or just let it die slowly putting around souding really good? :( :bawling:

WTF happened?

I'd guess 600+ HP with nitrous on the dyno?????
Sorry to hear Larry. You knew it would be comming, but that still does not help. Good luck on getting 800 HP. :eek: :thumbsup:

Is that a built bottom end that got hurt???

Or a factory tight piston stocker???

Sorry to hear that :(

Told you that you shouldn't have let Aaron drive it. :nope:

Larry,

Sorry to hear that the beast is sick!! While the little boy in me says "Go out in a blaze of glory"!! The Virgo in me says, "Take care of the lady to prevent other expensive parts from getting blown to bits!"

Keep us posted once she goes to the hospital. :(

I think doing frankenstangs motor in a lighter car will result in something like this and still be stretable!
