Back in the day, my friend Gary Donovan (in CT) used to race a 10-second 2.5L turbo K-car. Through much trial and error--especially error--he learned the stock cast pistons give up around 1700^ and...

I started the engine and it ran for perhaps 10 minutes until I gently drove it onto my trailer. By the time it was up there in place, it sounded like the engine was knocking.

And that is my philosophy as well. As one example, the 2.5L engine in my (former) turbo Caravan spun a bearing. This destroyed that individual rod and the crankshaft, but everything else was okay. I...

Does that mean your stock '66 subframe was a total no-go? (Was your '66 a straight six or a V8 car from the factory?)

I have a '66 Mustang coupe six cylinder car, and I have an LM7 engine, and I'm...

I'd wager heavily that it's normal. I'm new to V8s but not to big exhausts; I've got a full 3" mandrel system (with Dynomax straight-through perf core "bullet" muffler) under my Caravan, and it pops...
