Saturday night when merging on to the interstate engine stumbled at around 2400 rpms and 3/4ths throttle....hit it again and see LPO and HPO gauges dancing.:rant

Made a few calls, got home and checked the oil...it was aerated. Changed it yesterday and it's aerated on crank up.

Looks like I have a cracked pick up tube for the LPOP. Its now so bad that HPOP gauge is wavering and I have speed surge.

Only way to do it right it to yank the engine. :rant Least it will be going back together with a girdle, forged rods cryoed, head studs and valve springs.:sly


DIY hybrids??:innocent

Wow Earl.

Sure will be a good opportunity to make some improvements.

I guess it would be stupid to ask if you're gonna do the work yourself? :D

Yes I'll do the work myself. I'm even going to build my own injectors and flow test them in our Memphis, TN store.

I'm looking for a 450-475hp range. Much over that and I'll have to get a clutch.

Sorry to hear about the problems but at least it will be a nice turn around for you. Let us know how the DIY injectors work or how hard the process it. Just curious.
