Have to build a new motor... thoughts and ideas? I have full bolt ons and I don’t want to let go of the truck so it’s getting a motor build. Any info and ideas are much appreciated!
I’ve only blew one engine up in my lifetime. It was an old school V8. I kind of had the same feeling. Doing a major burn out, enjoying the V8 rumble and right as I was going to let off the gas I had one loud bang and crickets as I coasted to the next block to get off the main road. Snapped a camshaft and one rod in half.Much more uneventful than I’d ever suspect, I was always thinking there’d be a violent bang like a tank sending a projectile in to orbit, maybe see paint burst off the hood as a piston almost pierces through like Bruce Lee breaking wood, haha. Nothing was cool besides the billow of white smoke... def not eventful enough for the money I’m going to have to spend, haha! I’d much rather light smoke bombs in my culdesac. Jingle jingle like Santa’s bells, real sad sluggish not wanting to go anywhere, then pop pop like a couple dud fireworks, then the lame ass smoke show for 1.8sec behind the truck. No Sylvester Stallone First Blood stuff!
Yea, I'm hoping he gets some forged pieces in the short block, right? Amazing motors, but some very low hanging fruit to upgrade in that oem bottom end.Are you going to replace with a stock motor and lighter tune? Or what are you planning to prevent this from happening again?
Just my opinion, but fuel quality and octane will have a huge impact on what he can make. A good 93 tune with those turbos on that truck is looking like 425 absolute max.Ill guess you might be able to touch 425 rwhp before you run out of turbo at 5500', although, with a very strong tune may be able to push the turbos and get a little more.
My stock 2014 turbos are pretty much maxed at 365 crank at 6500'.
Oh yeah. I’ve blown 2 stock motors 475 and like 435 whp or less hp on good 93. Problem is also some tricks we learned over the years of tearing down of even built engines with a built bottom end have proven to be worth more than weight in gold.Just my opinion, but fuel quality and octane will have a huge impact on what he can make.
