Popping My M3's Redline Cherry (Rated R For Redline)
Just under a month ago I picked up my 2011 M3 on October 11, 2010. I took
the M3 in for it's 1200 mile service on November 5, 2010 which means one
thing and one thing only...taking the M3 all the way to it's redline and
seeing what this car is truly capable of.
Let me leave it at this: this car is an absolute animal and if my reactions
don't tell you that part of the story. You really have to be in the car to
believe how much power it really has.
Engine Blow up at school
This is what happens when you don't tighten the cam shaft bolts to specs.
We took the engine apart and all of the valves needed to be replaced
because they were bent. The top of the pistons all had the indentation from
the Exhaust and intake valves.
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.
