TOOK MY 99DOHC TO THE MACHINE SHOP

TOOK MY COBRA MOTOR TO THE MASHINE SHOP, THEY PULLED IT APART, CRACKED BLOCK, BROKEN RODS, HOLES IN PISTONS AND ONE OF THE HEADS GOT HURT. ANY IDEAS WHERE TO GO FROM HERE ANYBODY RAN INTO THIS SITUATION. SHOULD I BUY EVERYTHING NEW OR SHOULD I TRY TO FIND A USED SHORT BLOCK AND TRY TO FIND ONE HEAD? ANYBODY HAVE ANY PARTS LAYING AROUND?
THANKS.

Please use it.

Sorry bout your motor, that really sucks. How did your motor blow up? It doesn't look like you have any serious mods on your car?? Down shift to 2nd at 130MPH or something?? Motors that lightly modded shouldn't crack the block...

Why are you not covered by your warranty? Are you beyond the 36 month/36,000 mile limit? I would still go visit the dealer and calmly explain my situation. Sometimes you can get partial warranty coverage even after the 36,000 if you are on good terms with the dealer, and can demonstrate responsible maintenance. Your engine should not have grenaded like that, IMHO. Good luck, whatever you do.

BlackGT76:
I didn't like the Bassani. it had severe vibrations from bad welds on the heat shields, had a severe drone at 2,000 rpms, and I really wasn't impressed with the sound or performance gain. When I switched to an off road H, I got MUCH better performance, MUCH better sound, and no drone whatsoever. I am still running the stock cat-back, and am very happy with the BBK. I bought another BBK for my '95 as well. Prolly the first thing I will do to my '03 when it gets here will be an off road H. I have no dynos or slips to prove it, but the ORH was the cheapest , easiest mod for the gain I have done. Nothing else even close.
Later,
CW
