Usually the BBQ should come out of the Exhaust, not the Engine Bay

Glad your car didn't end up crispy like the Subaru back at the German Time Attack last year.


Hope you get the car running again soon.
...and be finally able to DRIVE and not WRENCH all the time.

While many started their Canada Day celebrations early, I was in the shop pulling the motor and we have seen a few pics of my car without a motor so for most this wont be a unusual sight lol.

First picture shows where fire #2 was, I didn't even see this one, the one I seen was on the uppipe and the scars can be found on the wrap on the downpipe which is now black.

The fire retardant solution was a great cleaner... so I thought until I seen under the motor which was a fucking mess. Oil everywhere.

So thoughts on my end right now from what I am seeing are that there was an oil starvation situation, when? not sure but I suspect on the dyno and the main line to the motor from the drysump system either fully or partially collapsed and when hitting the track it gave up. No ones fault but my own for not using the best of the best line for that. I will ask Chris to pull the block itself apart to see what he thinks and move on.

Currently waiting to hear back from Chris at Touge, they are a bit busy with moving shops. Thoughts right now are a IAG CD, stage ?.

things I need to be checked and or repaired other than the shortblock:

injectors-cleaned and tested
heads checked
cams checked
oil pump replaced
Turbo checked (possibly rebuilt)
drysump pump inspected
drysump pan fixed or replaced
drysump lines replaced

here are some more pictures of the damaged found today.

I may not be in the country and I may not have a motor at the moment but doesn't mean sweet parts can't show up.
