Massive amounts of carngage. Talk about reckless abandoment. Now what, 4.0 5.0 how about a stroked 302 to slip in there.

eh got another 2.9L on the stand, got another mud pit this sunday to visit, the 2.9L i have on the stand was FREE

well oil pressure gets real low like 2-5 psi after like 20 minutes of runnin, and so a few weeks ago i went to a mud pit thing, and i was overheating it left and right (on purpose) from the mud gettin in the raditor, now i have a mechanical gauge that goes to 280 and i had it pegged past 280 for like 10 minutes in the pits, it was gettin so hot i couldn't get the rpms over 2000, i would drive out hose it down bring the temp down to around 180 and back out in the pit and do it all over again, when i could get the r's up i was pushing so many r's in low range first gear that the valves were floating left and right, it survived the day, but began knocking and sounding very bad

then i had it at home and was screwing around, power braking on a hill running the r's over 4000 in first and BOOM no more r's
