Thanks!

Sorry this took so long, we have been extremely busy at the shop.

As promised here is a video of Paul Walker's Bearing. We also have included the explanation of Drew's (DLSJ5) blown motor.



Thanks for your time, we will try to post some close up pics ASAP.

We hope this clears up some of your questions and concerns.

thanks for the update...wow that is a scary thing to see. Do you have any idea what is causing the lack of lubrication to those bearings?

Yes we do, there are many different reasons why. One being the most obvious which is the oil pump, but this is only the first step. Unfortunately, there is a lot more components that need to be addressed to help prevent this from happening.

Our stage 3 SC kit has several updated and modified components that will not only help with better lubrication but also help with keeping oil temps down when the car is pushed hard.

Please understand that we cannot release all of the information that we have discovered over several years of R&D.

Stumbled on here by accident. Don't know a lick about tuning, but just learned our s65 engine has rod bearing issues. Thanks for the pics and education. I feel like such a poser right now.

Sorry guys we've been very busy and have not been able to post recent pics. Motor is now in the car




Updated bracket and pulley installed to handle higher boost levels

This bracket has also been tested and works with our YSI set up with no belt slip issues

Thanks guys! we've had a lot of experience with these motors. Are techs can prob. put these together in their sleep . Longest part of the build is assembling the bottom end, after that its all down hill. We now have the motor in the car and we are currently installing the complete upgraded fuel system that comes with our stage 3 kit. Once its all installed we will be ready to start it up. Stay tuned and thanks for all the comments
