On my way home from work last night I went at it with this 3v S197 mustang. First gear car ran like a bat outta hell, hit second and barked the tires and then the car just fell on its face. Horrible misfire and smoking like a train, had to get her towed home. Pulled all the spark plugs all were oil fouled on bank 1. Compression tested the engine and all of the cylinders on bank 1 had no compression. Pretty sure I made PTV. I dont know why it happened the car shifted at 6500 rpm like normal.

Being that I am sure the engine is done I've already started making plans.
- Teksid block
- Forged internals (crank, rods, pistons)
- Ported TFS heads from MHS (9.3-9.5:1 CR)
- Tork Tech Kit
- 2.8 Kenne Bell
- E85 w/ Meth

Buddy is selling his 2.8 KB said he would make me a killer deal on it. Would like to see in the 600whp range but we will see when we get there.

Shoot me some ideas on what you think. What I should do while I am there and things of that nature. Look for my up coming build.

Rob pm me on the prices for the heads. In the coming weeks I will be purchasing the KB.
What kind of compression ratio would you think would be adequate, GM?
And no I wasn't on the juice lol. All motor.

well Ricky just posted up how he's running 12:1 on 9psi in the supercharging forum. You should check out his thread. Run an air-to-water intercooler + meth + E85 and you can go HIGH. I'm an N/A guy, so my advice of going 14+:1 should not be heeded, lol. :D

With a 2.8l KB.... I wouldn't go insane on compression. Your goal of 600hp should be pretty easy. Just make sure your fuel system is stout. I'm running 60lb injector and a 405 pump. I think around 525whp on e85 is all it will do.

you might want to check with modular motors for the internals.
they have a 5.0 stroker kit, crank, rods, pistons, rings, bearings, and gaskets for around 2K and it's safe to 1000 rwhp.

when my friend builds motors for gt500's he likes to have 10 1/2-1 compression for gas motors.

10.5:1 is good on gasoline. But with the high octane of E85 + meth, the sky is the limit (practically).

I wanna see who has the manhood to do 15+:1 blown on 12+psi on E85 +meth injection + ice water-to-air intercooler :eek: :D

So I pulled the engine out today. I haven't gotten to totally tear it down yet. Got a late start to the day and ran out of sunlight...plus the buddy and I were watching football and drinking beer. lol. I did however get a chance to tear the valve covers off, check out what I found.

Thats from the passenger side head. The timing chain that connects the intake and exhaust cams. :mad:

Or the chain just broke. Same thing happened to my dad's '96 Mustang Cobra one morning when my mom went to start it before going to work. That made me paranoid about B-headed 4.6's.

That chain looks torn open; that takes a lot of force.

I'd pop the followers off with a screwdriver; I'm betting the non-driven cam is welded in place.

:(

Well on the bright side, the bottom end may be alright. Pop that head off and see what the pistons look like. You may be able to get away with just a head swap and be back up and running.

My thoughts exactly.

BTW is that a Mark VIII oil pan or the stock Tbird pan? I don't see the bung for the level sensor Marks use on the side?
