Bad day at the track

This first picture says it all in a way.
One pass and it was all over. Ran a 12.4 at 117.75 with a 2.15 60 foot and had to lift mid way. Lots of smoke on the return lane. Happy all that I found was this

Plus $325 to get towed 100 miles home.
It was a surprising result after getting dyno tuned. But there are some sensor issues with my setup and I have a feeling this is the root of the problem.
Headgaskets stayed clamped except for blowing-which is good.

+1 I melted a piston, end up costing me $1000. I couldn't throw a replacement stocker, I had to get all forged slugs and machine work.

So you only got one run? That sucks.

I am now a subscriber to the headgasket as a fuse camp. I really would hate to be messing with pistons now. I had mls gaskets in there before but they did not seal right with my factory surface prep. Now I am glad I went back to graphite.

Erich,
Impressive blown headgasket! On your first pass too, bummer... Just think, for the price of the tow and the gaskets you could have got one of these:

and probably never blow any gaskets. What kind of gasket is that btw? Pump gas?

How much do those badboys cost? Thats pretty cool.
This was pump gas 93 octane and a felpro 9333-pt1 gasket
There was a piece of the gasket in the valley too. That was amazing.

the base universal unit with ks sensor is $450, the gauge (must have, imo) is $99. If you would like boost retard function built into the unit it's like another $50. Mine has saved my ass a number of times and I won't own another forced induction car without it.

You definately had some detonation going on. Hear anything?

Sorry to hear Erich, but like they all say it coulda been worse.
have you thought about o-ringing the heads? I don't know how much better it is but it might be worth a try, of course the tune will need a little adjusting.
Happy wrenching-it will all be worth while the first time you mash the gas again and feel the pull.

Thats sucks! $325 towing bill, get AAA Plus I pay about $35 a year and I get 4 tows of 100 miles for free. I upgraded to the plus after a $180 tow from the track.

Moovs-Looking at the gasket, I am happy with how it performed. Something is up with the tune and I am glad this is all that happened. Yes I have AAA but not the plus. Upgrading now. I do have some towing thing on insurance and when I get my reciept, may be able to claim it.
Plenty of wrenching going on now. I am using this as an excuse to make a few changes that I had planned:
Different lower with EGR holes in it
Drill the lower for the air temp sensor and put sensors in right place
Mark 8 fan
Raise the boost a little

damn you guys go to the track without a trailer? you got some balls. Its Cheaper to rent one, or borrow one from your friends.

I just melted a piston last month, but the Cometic gasket is in great shape hahaha

I generally don't take a trailer to the track either Erich, as I like beating the race cars at the track and then driving by them on the way home while they are being towed on a trailer.
It's not a perfect world though so this isn't always the case.

I like driving the car on or off the track. Whenever you race, you are taking a chance that something will happen. That just goes with the territory. This is the first bad failure in a good bit of racing-so I condider myself lucky. If I thought I was so on the edge, I would have gone to a closer track.

10secgoal-after this I would modify your statement from "I hope my MLSs hold" to "I hope I don't have a detonation problem" The MLSs may hold but then you could break a rod, piston etc. Not sure what the line is between the greater strength of mls gaskets or 0-ringed heads and the strength of the rest of the motor under detonation conditions.

Yeah, your right. I still don't know why mine went. That's why I hope these hold. No detonation, just kinda burned the gasket on both sides like it lifted. AFR with studs.
Get it back together, take it to the track and piss some people off.

My first set of 9333-pt1s with factory bolts ate from the cyl to the water hole and bubbled the coolant. I went to arp studs and mls gaskets after that. But the mls gaskets did not seal right on my factory surface prep head/block and I still got some coolant bubbles. So back I went to the 9333-pt1s this time with the studs. These did not do the coolant thing but now I guess detonation caused them to fail spectacularly.

Erich,
Dude I have a trailer and if you ever want me to come pick you up and put the car on the trailer to go race just let me know. I was like you and never EVER considered a trailer up until this year. Honestly, it took a lot for me to bit the bullet and just get a trailer. I wanted to run 10's driving to and from the track but I now hope to enjoy piece of mind that if the car breaks, I'll just throw it back on the trailer and come home without calling AAA again. Next on my list is to get a winch....................

Cheers, Tim

I have learned no pure 93 octane at the track with a turbo car even if you think the car will run fine with pump gas. I would put at least 99 or 100 octane mix with your pump car at the very least even with the most conservative tune. This would be more of a reason if you had to travel that far to race your car without a trailer. I'm speaking out of experience with my car because I had a couple of these moments at the track with a blown headgasket and had to get a tow truck to take me home (40 miles) and this sucked. Mine is also a street car and I love driving my car to track and back home. I started to put pure 99 octane at the track and no more problems. On the street I drive it on 93 octane pump gas and I do give it a few full throttle blasts from time to time.

When I was ordering my afr`s I asked about o-ringing the heads and I got told by several people that they recommend not doing it. They said aluminium has a lower melting point then o-ring so if you blow out a o-ring gasket imagine what your doing to the heads.

Thanks alot, man. I haven't looked in here in a while. I am the same way wanting to drive back and forth to the tracks and run at least 11s (Yeah I know my 60 foots suck plus I had to lift during that run). Not much piece of mind when you blow stuff up for sure. It is funny that before I had the car properly tuned and it was running pig rich during the torque peak, I did not have any major problems. I thought I was safe with the tune.
Throwing some race gas in there is looking better for sure. Even some full throttle blasts on the street is not the same as the more sustained pull at the track. I think throwing in some race gas is good preventative medicine too. Again, I was like-this was tuned for 93 octane don't need race gas. Anything is better than a major breakdown at the track.

This was at Cecil county dragway. I may start going to closer tracks (capital or mason-dixon).

Been still tearing stuff down. I have coolant everywhere. Somehow even the bovs are full of it. I took all the turbo plumbing off and dried it this weekend. Replaced the headgaskets. Checked the heads for warpage (not warped).
I did find that my maf had kind of buckled under the clamp on the engine side. I wonder if that let in some unmetered air.....

Another thing I'm doing is putting a lincoln mark 8 fan in there. That can't hurt. Also fixing my screwed up sensor situation. I mentioned this in another post but I had my air temp and temp gauge sensors swapped. The car was pulling timing because it though the air was as hot as coolant. The tune tried to compensate for that. Live and learn. Too impatient and now I payed the price.

we popped a headgasket on my buddies hatch. So we went with felpro mls, had the surface of the heads checke and they took .005 off them and put arp studs in it. Should be good to go now. I know what you mean about coolant everywhere

i dont have a trailer either-- i have run 9's so far driving 64 miles each way to and from the track. my goal this year is 8.9999 driving to and from.

In run 9333's also with wire rings in the block. i have blown out 2 or 3 hg's out the bottom over the last 3 years. towed by AAA 2 times in the last 3 years. not too bad.
i run 20-25 psi boost so far. made 880 rwhp so far with the tires spinning on the dyno so we never got a full pull.
I run 100 octane and would recommend the same to you.

Nothing like a rear "street" car that really runs fast!

good luck to you!

That is really impressive running 9s driving back and forth! Do you gas up at the track or can you get that gas elsewhere? Where I used to live there was a station that sold race gas.
I upgraded my triple A to plus.

Very impressive for sure. I wanted to drive to/from the track and run 9's but to be honest, I just couldn't pass up the sweet deal I got on the open trailer I got and also I wanted some piece of mind if I opted to go to an event hundreds of miles away. I have AAA plus, however, it gets old sitting and waiting for them and I think they have all of my info handy and know when I'm heading to the track It's pathetic when the tow truck driver says "hey didn't I pick you up here last time".

Erich again if you go to the track and need a tow on the trailer for some piece of mind, I'll be more then happy to help if you're willing to pitch in a few bones for gas...LOL.

That is bad when the driver recognizes you.....
I asked the driver if he goes to cecil often. He said sometimes. Then the radio went off and there was a neon to pick up afterwards.

I'll pitch in for gas and Beer.

Damn, how'd i miss this thread? sorry....

Glad you and the car are ok, head gaskets are a constant worry with us boosters and the debate has raged forever on the best route to go with them.

I also love driving too and from the track, trailers are PITA most of the time. However, when I race with my bro he takes his low 12 sec SVO (this season prolly mid 11s) and gets trailered by another one of our friends. That way if only one of us breaks there's a free tow home.

So is your car back together? What parts you using?

Car still apart. The heads are on tho-using the graphite felpros. I now am in the camp of "headgasket as a fuse". I am grateful that the only problem is headgaskets, not pistons and machining etc. I am doing a few things that make this take longer.
1) I sent my MAF back to PMAS and they replaced the buckled cracked plastic with powdercoated metal. Got that back Thursday.
2) Installing a mark 8 fan. This required a 130 amp alt and 75 amp relay plus fabrication. That is going well
3)Getting all the coolant out of the system. That has been done. But all turbo parts are off the car.
4) Getting the emissions version of my exploder lower manifold drilled in the proper place for the air temp sensor. I messed it up and had to fill it in with my MIG welder set up for aluminim. I redrilled it today and it is looking decent.
5) Need to get it retuned with all of the above. May setup for a little more boost at the same time.

1) I sent my MAF back to PMAS and they replaced the buckled cracked plastic with powdercoated metal. Got that back Thursday.
2) Installing a mark 8 fan. This required a 130 amp alt and 75 amp relay plus fabrication. That is going well

Hey Tim-Still working on it. I need to get my intake stuff sorted and then get it tuned again.
So far, I've been able to make it TO the track but it is the return trip that has been rough-LOL. Are you up for any "rescue missions"?
