    2011 wasnt a great year for me, bad luck sunk in from day one, only 2 passes were ever made on the 410 before disaster struck :(

    distroyed the 410 twice :(

    then a ls2 stock bottom end after 10 miles, broke 5/6 rods and distroyed the block, kicker this was at 5800 rpms :(


    410 failure = once on machincal failure from comp with broke springs then broke a valve

    second spun main bearings

    had issues, also during the year with cracking of heads in the intake ports do to too much porting from livernois running a bad cnc then more on the hand porting on some LSA heads, went back to what worked very well in the ls3/l92 head setup :)

    for the third time shes being rebuilt once again :) i did furnish another 6.0 cast block and paid half for the pistons, hopefully this year will be much better than last!!

    she'll be a true 408 pushing some serious power!!! <------ if gods willing!!


    i have sent out my injectors to have flow tested for security reasons though they were new i had issues of detonation on 5 & 7 pistons though running NA, also new coil packs will go on and wiring checked.. cant afford another set back this go round as im tired of spectating at the local tracks lol


    but besides the point glad to be back !! on TMC

    Merry Christmas to all & in hopes 2012 brings joy to everyone ( including myself )
