Build number one which can be seen here
ended in complete carnage and can be seen here
There wasn't a lot left but this is the story of what was, and what was to be; And how because of simple fear of future failure, I have built a reliable daily driver 500hp monster. Only I don't drive it daily because it won't always let me and it's just not that much fun in traffic. I'll get to that.
Even the case halves were shot. Almost everything was junk so it was time to start again.
Here's what I ended up with. A 1200hp block with a 500hp Turbo so the engine is a honey badger.

Initially I just wanted to find a way out and didn't know where to start so the heads and damaged cams were boxed up and sent out to the machine shop.
The cams were polished and could have been reused, in fact they were in another engine but just came back in the head for ease of shipping.
The decisions were being made and while at the machine shop the heads were worked over on their CNC machine and sorted with lots of Brian Crower valvetrain parts.
This part was done relatively quickly and then the heads sat and sat and waited and waited.
Meanwhile. The car too sat motionless, without an engine.
Where it would sit for just over a year until I could come and get it and finally get it back on the road. Even then, that wasn't going to be the end of the story.
