It'* the twin-charged '96 SSEi with the 4T80 swap. The first time it broke, the #4 hole let loose a huge bang, resulting in this:
And everything was o.k. It'* been another three or four weeks and I was tuning on it again and then this happened:
#4 again! The engine is beat... porcelain went all thru the top end, beat on all the pistons, ruined #4 and #5 cylinders. I am looking for a long block now, but wondering why #4????
The first thing I'll check is the injector and harness on #4. They are brand new Precision injectors, but I guess that doesn;t mean anything if it'* bad. The rear header is home made, unequal length, but #4 is the middle length of the three, not the longest or shortest. Neither #2 or #6 looks or looked lean before. When it blew, the O2'* were 11.4-11.8 on the rear and 10.8-11.2 on the front (which is why you see I was tuning left and right banks with injector skew) I only had about 5deg KR so I know it didn't run out of retard. But why is it only #4?????
The fuel rail is modified L36, inlet on the rear (2,4,6) with 4 being the second hole. I am at a loss untill I take it apart and explore the possibilities of fuel issues on that hole....
Wish me luck.
