My first motor!
Friday, January 07, 2005 8:46 PM
I done blowed her up! 75 shot top of 3rd bout 5000rmp racing a 5.0! i had him by bout a half car length and boom surge of energy and then 75-80% loss of power. sputtered a bit then this real bad rumble? i dunno how to explain it. sounds almost like a z28 with a nice exhaust on it. Im exited and sad all in once! now im definitely parting it all out! lol 602-841-5122 call that number ask for Will and the list of what i have is in my profile. Good night, good fight.

Hey if you need help dropping a replacement in there I'll help ya out. Let me know what you plan on doing with it.

nitrous, azenis, dash and vinyl covers is what I'm insterested in....

mostly nitrous and dash tho. Well my tires are extremely bald as well so new tires would be important also if you're selling them. <br>

Like I said... sell any and all aftermarket stuff you want.. just as long as you have replacement parts for it (stock parts) then I am happy... then.. figure out how much you want for it with the blown engine.... if its in my price rnage then I am a happy camper... if not then... I am sorry for wasting your time

Im going to sell the car. thats final! but i think the problem might be something as small as a predet spark plug. I just dont know what the gap is for the new plugs. anyone know? And as for the price of the car, im gonna give my lean holder a call on Mon. and figure out exactly what it is.
Re: My first motor!
Sunday, January 09, 2005 12:37 PM

.045 is what the plug gap is stock


for nitrous .030 to .035 is what they should be set at

no prblem man



Re: My first motor!

Ok, so the plugs were all swapped out and the problem still persists. So i then checked the oil color and thought that maybe it was a valve guide.. Nada oil still looks good. So then i did a compression test. Tada! Cylinder 1 shows 50 and the other 3 are recording 175-180. So i suppose that means i blew a ring! *sigh* thats gonna be a bitch to replace. Now as for selling it. i don't know what kinda cost diff. thats gonna make if i sell the car as is with a broken ring. Or if i should do the repair and then sell it. We'll see.

well brandon was paying close to 500 for the motor , plus parts and supplies needed for the motor swap


thats gonna be the best option , im guessing it will need a piston , plus rings for that hole
