1993 Dodge Daytona Blows a connecting rod while at wide open throttle!!
**OK ALL YOU MORONS THAT THINK I BLEW UP A PERFECTLY GOOD CAR: THE UNIBODY WAS ROTTED OUT BEYOND THE POINT OF PASSING INSPECTION. THIS CAR SAT FOR 2 YEARS BEFORE THIS. BEFORE BLOWING THE ENGINE THE CAR WAS THRASHED ON A BACK ROAD AND THE SPIDER GEARS WERE BLOWN OUT OF THE TRANS SO IT DIDN'T MOVE. IT WAS HEADING TO THE JUNKYARD THE NEXT DAY, AND IT PAYS THE SAME RUNNING OR NOT SINCE ITS SUCH A COMMON/WORTHLESS ENGINE SO WE DECIDED TO HAVE SOME FUN!
Motor Blow Up
What a bunch of rednecks do on a saturday afternoon. lol
The Death of a V8 RX7
My 302 powered FB RX7 decided after months of abuse to throw two rods on my
way home from work. It put a hole in the oil pan and two holes in the
block but still I drove it home. I decided since nothing was savable to
take it out back and finish it off.

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.
Who needs rods?
this is a video of my friend Joe drifting his 240, throwing a rod, then
drifting some more. lol.
Burnout contest at the 4wheel Jamboree 2012 in Lima, Ohio on May 20th.
This truck blows it's turbo, and
apparently caught on fire mid way through his run. (even though I never saw
any flames) Fortunately for him, he won 1st place in the end.
PRO MOD DIESEL PULLERS 1500HP, ENGINE BLOWS
Wildcoyote34's comment of driveline failure causing engine overspeed is
Engine lost a front driveline part causing driveline failure resulting in
load to no load on the engine sending the engine into orbit. As I remember
there was Rod caps laying on the ground after this truck pulled.
