Gonna need pics, skipper.Its back at the shop. Im home pouting. Ive blown up quite a few engines, they usually degrade, splutter and start blowing oil out the exhsust, lose power and die.
This engine actually exploded. Ive nrver experienced that. It was rude. The blue smoke ball covered both lanes. Not sure how fast i was going, and probably wouldnt say if I did, but I will admit it was WOT.
Warren, the engine is a CT525 crste engine out of a wrecked race boat, the engine was stored for 8 years. Sold to me at discount, no warranty.
The fuel system was converted to Holley tunsble injection, 50 lb. fuel pump. ProBlower super charger w/ intercooler, set at 8 lbs. boost.
Transmission is TransGo heavy duty rated to 1K h.p.
Lap top tuned for 800 h.p., redline 6200. Rev limiter.
I cant help but wonder if the valve springs deteriorated, some of which would have been compressed, during storage.
