Man that sucks. Hopefully if there was a judgement error, someone will help make it right.Long story short . Motor is almost out .
Engine builder said it sounds like the seats are sinking the valve and that’s where the lash gets tight . On top of that whether related or not trying to figured this out something happened in cyl 7 . Air in the cyl and it pressureizes crank case and I can feel the air coming out of my passenger side valve cover fitting . So it’s hurt . Is what it is . Yes I’m pissed . No I don’t think it’s freezy fault I have full confidence in esp being he tunes these combos every week . Stuff just happens and I’m the luck of the draw . When I’ll be back idk . Atleast it will be out and apart . I’ve been through a lot the last 2 months so I’m burned out at everyend .
Thanks for following along guys . I don’t think much will be going on for a bit.
Thank you . I don’t want to sell it . I just am out of energy and extra funds at this point to just say yeah I’ll fix it ASAP and be back . So motor comes out and it sits for a while . Sorry to hear about yours it does suck I know it well .Glad to see you have your spirits up still as you have been through a lot lately. Im in the same boat as you as well with mine probably hurt, and will be tearing it apart hopefully this weekend to see if it salvageable.
We are all rooting for you that's for sure, since you car is absolutely AWESOME!!!!
I’m not looking for free stuff . Idk if there was a judgment error . Bad batch of valves .Man that sucks. Hopefully if there was a judgement error, someone will help make it right.
Maybe I said that wrong. That's the tough part about custom motors, there really is not a way to warrant anything against defects because its so hard to pinpoint what exactly went wrong.I’m not looking for free stuff . Idk if there was a judgment error . Bad batch of valves .
I’m confident in everyone from the builder to Brian being thorough and just maybe this was a conicendene that something was just bad from the get go
Oh it’s definitely hurt . Shop air in cyl 7 with the rockers off and out the other side of the valve cover Assures me of that .Maybe I said that wrong.

I hope it's something simple and the motor isnt really hurt.
For the price of a mild hci long block I can fix this thing . Converter won’t be right for anything but what it was built for . I may build an IC for it this time around . I’m all over the place . LolDude, F*CK turbos. more heat, more moving parts, more plumbing, more problems. My opinion is there are two ways to have a reliable turbo setup - super mild, low boost that doesn't get beat on much (which, this theory is still in the testing mode, but so far so good) and the trade off is obvious there: a limp d:ck power output. The other side of the equation is an ultra high dollar shop sponsored car that people pay other people to work on constantly.
I just hate to see this man. I've been there several times in the past and I know where my path has led when I stood at this fork. Maybe find a mild HCI long block for cheap somewhere and toss it in while you figure out what to do with your expensive motor.
So it could be as simple a the wrong valves then Jeff?So Freezy spoke to tea today . Said it sounds like the valves were trying to pull through too and tuliping . So they get to talking and he asks how being these heads have good valves . Well at some point they moved away from using the ferrea severe duty valves . Freezy told them would’ve been nice to know being what we were doing with this thing .
No . There is definitely something going on In cyl 7 in my opinion . If it was just valves tuliped all the wire from the leak down shouldn’t be leaking I to the crank case and back out the pass side valve cover. Sure it would leak out the intake or exhaust but not the crank caseSo it could be as simple a the wrong valves then Jeff?
That would be an excellent find for the problem, right?
