DEATH OF A TRANS AM WS6!!
After a year of beating on the stock block after all the mods, and
approaching 98k miles, the LS1 block finally started having excessing
blow-by in the cylinders and also blowing oil into the upper crankcase
housing. It ran strong, producing idle launch 1/4 times of 12.4 @ 118MPH.
But....IT'S TIME TO GO BIG!! Updates on the way...
