Her First Ride In the M3
Caroline has been a close friend of mine for years now and when we were in
school she was a member of our college car club. Needless to say, she is
used to fast cars. To this day we have stayed in contact with each other
and because of our schedules she never got to ride in the M3. Until now.

GM 216 Straight Six Blowing Up & Catching on Fire
To all the angry viewers out there, please feel free to post your
ridiculous comments below and thanks for watching! Blowing up the engine
was really fun, and I would't think twice about doing it again. For all the
other viewers who enjoyed the video, please post your awesome comments
below and thanks for watching!
The engine had not run for a number of years and was scrapyard bound so
after sanding down the points and giving it some fuel it ran wide open for
about 10-12 minutes before it threw some rods, the oil caught on fire, and
it ran out of fuel.

an unknown number of years]
VW Jetta 'Getta' HY35 Engine Blows and Fire Starts!
My friends 2002 Jetta (2.0 auto) that was swapped with a 1.8t/manual swap,
custom intake manifold and custom turbo
kit with a Holset hy35, ls2 coils, unitronic ECU, digital climate control
swap, audi tt front spindles, clutch masters fh400 clutch setup and audi tt
awd 6speed tranny (will be converted to awd this year).
The stock rods we know were the weak point but it didn't bother us because
we have a fully built motor to go into it. During the video we were having
issues with controlling the Boost
and hitting 2.29-3.3 bars of Boost... and well you'll see the result. The
reason for the fire was a nylon tube that melted and covered the turbo area in oil, which burnt the shifter cables
and some wires. No big loss, 150 dollars in parts and a crazy drive. Will
be back soon with over 550whp ;)
The car was fine we were 1/8 of a mile from the house before it caught
fire. Towed it home and found that the number 2 rod went threw the block
RIP stock 1.8t
Build thread can be seen here
We want to thank the two families who used their car for us to drive to our
house and grab all the water and helped extinguish the fire. We thank you
SO much. Please if you ever see this video contact us we would like to
repay you in some way. To us you guys are heroes.
Cash for Clunkers- killing innocent 1994 BMW 530iM :'( such a tragedy.
After watching this a few times, I have determined that my comments are
quite ignorant, don't let my remarks sway your judgment, I was VERY PISSED
about having to blow this car up! The owner was not a dumbass, my brain was
BOILING with all kinds of hateful thoughts because of this program. I
still blame the Gov't as a whole. This is a car enthusiast's worst
I don't know how I can ever trust these bureaucrats with health care when
they approve of a program like this.
I do apologize for the cursing and rude remarks made. I am entitled to my
opinion, as are you, as is everyone else.
5spd manual trans, car was showing 23.4mpg avg at time of destruction. i
really respect this car, it's such a shame it had to go this way.
