            252whp/289wtq on a hot day. A good baseline before the m60b44 goes in.

                  What does the car feel like with 17 inch rims? Not sure If i should go with 16 inch rims or 17 inch rims. I want to beef up the brakes a bit so i may have to go the 17" route

                              We after 3 years of running the swap hard (multiple trackdays/tail of the dragon visits/burnout competitions) the engine developed a knock. I lived with the knock and just kept beating on it for over a year, until finally on the way to the Dragon she let go at 4k rpms. Made for a spectacular smokescreen on the interstate. Plan is to pull the blown engine and swap over some parts to the new M60b44(reground cams/custom headers/ltw flywheel) I've been working on. Updates to follow, for now here are some pictures of the carnage, removal and new engine.

                              A video after it threw the rod, engine still ran kind of...

                                Holy shit hahaha. Seems like the oil pan and starter might have been salvageable, had you not gone for the rev limiter with a broken connecting rod. Although it was pretty funny hearing the "whoops", like it was an accident that you restarted it and floored it lol
