This is not my video. I found it on an old hard drive I had from 2003, before the days of youtube. Putting it up so everyone can witness the abuse this rotary took before it finally gave up the ghost. If you don't have 10 mins, it pops @ 7:17 and fire chaos begins shortly after.
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.

The Zero F**ks Given RX7 - /TUNED
Would you drive a car built by a teenager in his parents driveway with no
safety features whatsoever? We did, and now we'll tell you why this ugly
RX7 is so brilliant.
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.
Evo 9000 rpm 2nd 3rd gear redline
This is my 2003 evo 8. Im just doing a 2nd 3rd gear pull. As said, I had
the camera attached to my left hand thats why I'm shifting so slow. Built
by Trevtec. I'm actually redlining at 9,200rpm. It's about 40mph in 2nd
gear 5,000rpm. And 105 in 3rd at 9,200rpm.
THE GREATEST MOTOR BLOW OF ALL TIME - HYUNDAI ACCENT
THIS HYUNDAI ACCENT WAS EXPECTED TO BE THE LEAST EXCITING CAR OF THE
NIGHT.. BUT IT CERTAINLY WAS ONE OF THE BEST FIRE BALLS, LASTING A GOOD 28
MINUTES, MOST OF WHICH WAS CUT OUT FOR YOUR VIEWING PLEASURE, BUT IT WAS
SURE NOT TO DISSAPPOINT
The Death of a V8 RX7 (with update in description)
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.
Update: First to clear things up and settle some arguments. For everyone
that says that this was a waste of money, I made money on this car. I got
the car because I traded a for festiva for it that I had no money into. The
car also didn't have a engine in it when I got it. My friend who was the
previous owner had removed it when it went bad and then lost interest in
it. The motor and trans( a AOD for those wondering) came from a car I paid
$75 for and then scrapped for a profit. I sold the intake and carb off it
and then put a 350 chevy in it with a turbo 350 which didn't cost anything. I then sold
the car as a unfinished project and made almost a grand on it. The whole
reason for building the car was just to have fun with it and I wanted
another project. It was never to build something that was going to rule the
streets or show how that one engine is better than another. I just like
wrenching on cars and wanted to see what I could put together with
basically spare parts. Also to those that say that I should have saved the
engine or that it was junk for blowing up on my way home. That engine had
well over 150,000 miles on it when I got it and was then used in a derby
car before it got use in this car. It was well used, had been over heated
and wasn't worth anything anyways. And anyone that knows anything about
building 302's knows that a mid 80's passenger car 302 is definitely not
the engine to start with if you want to make power. They are low
compression and have terrible heads and camshaft due to emissions
standards. This was just something to build for fun and for the few months
it ran it was a blast to drive.
