Default White Whale VS Vagon (no spray mostly gay)

Met up with my buddy last night for a pull. He has a builts HECI ported blower Vagon.

The cars:


The pull:


That motor had a good run with tons of abuse, it was only a matter of time. Hope to have something up and running by next spring.

Moral of the story:
If the pull don't feel right, abort and take the small L instead of the big L.

Nice kill DD car rolls out hard. Hopefully it is a simple fix brother. Nothing worse then see a car hurt.

Just big blow by that I can see so far. #3 is fucked for sure.

I'm confident the blower is good, heads/block are yet to be determined...

Let's be honest, who has the self restraint to lift and take a loss?

Sucks about the engine failure but good thing it's a shop sponsored build

Mod motor with 7 cyl did OK I guess vs full sausage LSA.

Damn...Good run but that sucks about the motor! Sorry man.
At least you did not window the block so maybe there is some hope that it is nothing catastrophic. Regardless, I am curious what let go. Post up some pics when you find the culprit.

sorry about the motor. they have limits. IMO you have the creds to put a real motor in that. forget an iron block. 1200-1300hp is not enough. get you a gt motor. we chatted about a terbo. the iron NVH block has a 1200-1300 crank hp limit that is regardless of how its made.

you get a GT block and that thing can be far quicker than your cobro. the nice thing is, it fits like well,,,,its designed to be in there unlike a fox/fox4/new edge. just sayin.
