SharaDon Performance /1 week turbocharged engine build

Sunday

- Put the truck in the shop so it would be warm to work on Monday morning. #1

Monday

- Truck in the air for the first of many times... #2



- Surveyed the mess of oil under my truck. #3



- Transfer Case out. #4



- One dirty ransmission on its way. #5



- Motor getting ready for its 'escape'. #6



- We realized my oil loss problem was from my intake manifold being improperly installed. Rubber gaskets around the pcv valve and oil fill

tube were both missing and the foam that sits under intake manifold was actually folded over, not allowing the manifold to be tightened

down properly. #7,8




- Motor on its way out. #9



- Started work on the truck at 7am and had the transfer case/transmission/motor out before noon.

- Empty engine bay. #10



- Passenger side. Cylinder 2 got the worst of it, and piston 4 was the only one not missing pieces. #11,12,13




- Drivers side, all missing chunks. #14


- Pieces of piston in the oil pick up tube. #15


- Number 2 piston out of the cylinder. #16




Tuesday

- My new Block ready to go together #18


- Ross Pistons and Crower Rods. Not taking any chances, expensive rods.


- Denny grabs the lube and gets busy on new 370

Haha, this happened 6 months ago. Look back in your help topic 'guys I need your help PLEASE ASAP...or I am walking to work again'. First thing I said was "It is extreamly important not to get in a panic and figure things are installed right and go try without checking and double checking everything, it could cost you a motor... trust me... ". This would be what I was getting at, lol.

This is exactly what happened to mine. Like I was telling you on the phone today.


Vince,

What new parts are you putting into your engine? Notice when you pull the pistons out how little piston there is between the top and the actual ring itself? Please tell me everything will be forged! I went with custom forged ross pistonThey double the amount of piston between the ring and the top. how many pounds of boost were you running when this happened? What # spring did you have in your waste gate?

Problem wasn't 'just' boost, it was 87 gas, superchips 91, 5# spring, and hotter plugs. Its a long story but basically the truck was laid up for a while installing the turbo with an empty tank, threw in lawnmower gas (87), forgot about the superchips (advanced the timing) and the first 2 stations I went to were out of Premium. Got impatient and put my foot into it.

Everything will be forged. Putting in a 370 with a stage III tranny, and a host of other goodies. I will put up a full list when I have more time, but I think I got most of it in the 'Whats Next' topic in General discussions.

Bastard, now I have to do something with my truck! Maybe I can break your record for most trashed engine still under its own power.

Do be sure to give all the juicy details when it's done.
