don't forget that mikey's been running nitrous on there for awhile now. small as the shot may be it possibly contributed alittle.

sorry mikey to hear what happened, like you said though, it just gives you a reason to build a motor

Re: (yerrow)

Nitrous may also be the reason it lasted as long as it did if detonation was the culprit.

On the new motor though I'd lose the nitrous in favor of water injection to be on the safe side though. You can still run 50% methanol through it to boost octane.

You can also just buy the Aquamist mechanical bits and use the Unichip to do the water to boost map. Couple hundred bucks in what may end up to be a 10K rebuild is cheap insurance if you ask me.

Just throwing this idea out there since I know very little about cars, but does Boosted's blown engine have anything to do with the fact that he puts around 7 qts of oil in his engine?

Dont say that!!!!!

Where does 8500 get you a rebuilt race motor?
right here:
http://www.vmsperformance.com/....html

from the description it looks like it comes to you all setup and ready to go...just drop it in


that would be the ultimate and final mod for me if i still have the car 4-5 years from now.

Re: (BOOSTED S60R)

Sorry to hear about the motor.


Even though you can now put in a high performance engine and other suitable mods, it does beat the crap out of the bank account.


Keep us informed as to what you finally decide to do.

Did you try taking the car to the dealer and see if they will fix it under warranty? Lol.

Re:

i'm very sorry for your loss Boosted, i hope you can salvage your block or find another one in good condition @ a good price... it's really sad and discouraging to hear that one of the nicest & sickest cars of swedespeed has blown its engine.

Re: BLOWN MOTOR! (gdogg16)

ah man Boosted!!! Sorry to hear about this. At least you still have your DD, but this sucks. Reminds me of when I sheared a few lobes off the camshaft in my old camaro, loss of oil pressure very quickly killed that motor.

Have you thought about contacting AtSpeed......I know they have the parts. Cosworth FTW!!!

Re: (phuz)

Maybe we can have a funeral service for Boosted's engine. Maybe we can do a burial or cremate it. Or maybe crush it into a block. Then we can turn it into a coffee table.

Shes not dead... just undergoing open heart surgery!


Turn it in to a coffee table. http://********************/smile/emthup.gif
