    You didn’t gap the rings and it blew ( and you actually said that)?
    Something about this whole thing is just not right.

    With that much damage to the engine pistons, how the hell did that even run in the last episode? With one piston gone sure, but that looks like it was running on only 5 pistons. And with all kinds of trash inside it. It blows my mind.

  • JohnnieRhodes

    Hey Cleetus , I have an ‘84 Corvette (semi-stock) and would like to know what you suggest to get some power out of it without replacing everything, altogether. Please don’t tell me to dump the car as everyone else suggests this and it has very sentimental value for me (more than you could ever imagine). It’s just a dog as you’re probably already aware. Still has the dreaded cross-fire injection which I know is the biggest problem, but I did put trick flow heads and changed the exhaust (headers) and did the simple things (performance chip, lower thermostat, oversized pulleys, etc.). It’s still a dump truck and I feel I have been going backwards instead of making any progress. I also don’t feel that I got any bang for the buck on the trick flow heads, possibly because it’s not working properly with the other components. It now has a computer that was completely reprogrammed and chipped which now makes it backfire and fail emissions. I purchased a used “original ECM and chip” to get it back to where it was, but where it was is dreadful. Spending money after money to go backwards and I can’t abandon this car as it means so much to me and my family (long story). I just want it to run decent and respectable. I’m not needing it to run 10’s, 11’s, or even 12’s (but 12’s would be awesome). I just want it at the very least “respectable” for its generation. Can you give me any advice ? Thank you, Cleetus !

    If I remember correctly from when you first started the engine... You didn't break in the cam... So that is a problem then also you didn't seat the rings... On top of that you ran boost before the rings seated, if you do that the last will go right past the rings and cause serious blowby and never let the rings seat... Maybe that's why it blew up?
