Soooo how'd it go boom? What kind of sbf shenanigans will come next?
Drinking nothing tonight cuz exam tomorrow..probly won't drink after my exam tomorrow either because it will be easy..I'll save my booze for after my calc 3 exam, which is on Saturday at 7:30am -_-
I'm not sure what broke yet, but I think it was just fatigue. This engine was a stock block, with a Scat (Chinese) cast crank, and I beam rods, and I'm pretty sure scat rates that at 500 hp. It made more than that on motor, and 95% of its passes were on the bottle. Over time, that just fatigues parts.
Me and my daughter were leaving horseback riding lessons, and I gave it a quick burst on the highway. At about 6000 RPMs, it grenaded and went to 0 RPMs instantly. No trying to turn over, clattering....nothing. It seized from 6000 RPMs, and there's a large hole in the oil pan.
When it popped, I looked down and it had 65 psi of oil pressure, it never made a sound before it popped, and it was still making solid power proven by the track passes I made a few weeks ago. I think a rod just broke because they have so much abuse and weren't made to support the power. The motor has never been refreshed or been into, so I'm calling it parts fatigue. I just hope the heads survived, but the way it went, I'm doubting anything is salvageable.

And as far as future SBF shenanigans for this car, it's hard to say. I can't imagine anything much different because the car itself can't take any more power, so I'm expecting a similar combo. I was about to buy a new truck so the car may be dead for a while, considering that, and our house build.
