i agree on the cams being tigtened incorectly....also, as soon as you strap your car to the dyno you sign a waver dont you? I know i did
:dunno I'm confused...you're not blaming them, but it's their fault?...I am not blaming the shop. It seems highly likely from what I have heard that it was their fault...
First you mentioned you didn't push the motor after the install, max 4K RPM when it blew. However, you mention the car was not running right before the dyno but you still put it on the rollers to see what it could do. I'm guessing they ran it beyond 6K RPM to measure that.Almost forgot, after the install on the way to the dyno, the car would stall sometimes at a stand still, and the best that i can describe it is the engine did not like to sit still. After the dyno it ran great, and then boom the engine blew, on the trip back.
Definately an oversight...don't worry I will make sure you sign it next time you are on the dynoI have never signed anything at JPC over the last few years, but that may just be due to having a good relationship with Justin.
You always come in way later than my car gets strapped on. (worse than banker's hours??) I kind of figure it's my problem if it pops especially when Kevin's tuning and I'm pushing the stock shortblock.Definately an oversight...don't worry I will make sure you sign it next time you are on the dyno
Forged stroker FTW!Well finally the shop is being responsive. They are going to help me out with part of the labor and the motor is being rebuilt to a forged 302 stroker. Luckily I haven't spend every penny on upgrades, and it makes sense to do a rebuild when the motor is already torn apart. It's a lot of money...I guess its worth it. Thanks for all the help guys. I talked to a lawyer and he said it was a dead end, and it would be really hard to prove anything.
