This is what hapens when u have a bent rod and u don't know about it. crapy pics they are off a phone but u can see the holes. oh yea besides the two holes in the pics we have counted four other holes in the block and destoryed the radiator. All because of a been rod.

"My parents are going to be so pissed." lol Ive seen that video so many times and always laugh.

Sucks on the motor man. Thats what I am scared of when I get the Integra Running something like that happening. I have put about 4-5k in the motor, but everything is new so, hope I have good luck on it.

I don't know what funnier about that youtube video. The retard filming are both retards talking. Doesn't even look like the m3 was racing this fool.

Sorry about you motor. That would suck. Best of luck getting her up and running again. Lucky noone was hurt.

nah i don't have the money for that right now. i just got another one to go in for now. oh if anyone knows someone that needs a shorty header the motor i got had one on it. i don't need it i got a long tube performance racing header to go on mine so its no good to me. not sure what kind of shorty header it is. i haven't seen it yet... i just wacthed that video and its safe to say i was not doing anything that stupid. in fact i wasn't even doing the speed limit when it blew. wow what a stupid mofo

well just don't bounce it off the rev limiter (correct me if I'm wrong, lol) and you should be fine there..... other than that, it's gotta just be totally random/ lack of care that would cause something like this to happen. OR a manufacturing defect [dunno]

Here's another video (you may have seen it) of a 350Z's engine blowing up at 320 KPH ~200MPH. It makes the same ugly sound except the car is going 200MPH and the engine just barfed oil all over the rear wheels; scary looking crash but the driver is standing around after the wreck.

It's funny, I was at a grocery near a used car lot when I saw an engine with big holes in the block, I checked it out and it was a Zetec.

I guess the Duratecs may be a bit hardier, this bozo's engine didn't blow up (or maybe his parent's car)
