Shelby Rebuild

Post  csullyracing on Fri Mar 18, 2011 3:05 pm

Ok everyone if you didn't know my famous Shelby GT500 decided disagree with the road and needed a vacation. There was a mechanical malfunction that caused serious damage. The altinator went bad and was not providing enought volts to the fuel system. This cause a failure in fuel pressure making the car run very lean. While I was driving to work one morning at about 90mph there was a detination. Cylender #7 lots compression. The spark plugs were covered in oil. After the tear down there was a hole dicsovered in cylender #7 and vaulves stuck open on cylender #1. Thank god it is all covered under the warranty. The new engine arrived today. I am really excited because it is the new 2012 Aluminum 5.4L engine that has 55 more horsepower and weighs 250lb less.

That so sucks but at least you got a brand new engine out of it. That cant be all that bad. Do you have it all put back together now?
