Ever thrown a rod? how about a block?
HUGE engine explosion at a tractor pull event. the block is literally
blown out of the engine bay and lands onto the ground next to the tractor.
as far as catastrophic faliure goes, this is as bad as it gets.
This is our 24 cylinder Detroit that we are putting in a custom 359
Peterbilt. It will use an Allison Transmission, and the engine will be in
the front of the truck. We are starting off with 40 foot 4" X 14" rectangle
rails, not sure how long it will end up being.
Motor Blow Up
What a bunch of rednecks do on a saturday afternoon. lol
05 STi Dyno Accident
Had a little problem on the first pull. The headers melted the strap and
off she went. After that we got a good tune put on it. Thanks to Ether
Tuning in Wytheville Va. Ended up with 237 hp and 309 tq on a MustangDyno.
Mods include: Short ram intake, APS Full race Exhaust, GP Moto unequal length headers, and
short shifter. We had a COBB on it and took it off to put a new tune on.
1st pull was a baseline pull with the COBB.

1,600 Wheel Horses on the Dyno...
Anytime you take a couple F2 chargers feeding a whole bunch of cubes and
add methanol even on only half of max Boost it is quite a show.. Intake gasket that
didn't want to play cut the day short. Around 1,600whp through an auto!
Lots left in the car and the Dyno. Over 1K ftlbs by 4

Had manners like a street car just a bit more bark.
Built by Mark Werdehausen of Tydo racecars. A few of the components
came from Taliaferro machine shop. On the Superflow Autodyn 30 in
