Snow Performance= Bent Rod

I just wanted to warn you Dmax guys that my Snow Millage Max malfunctioned and bent a rod in my engine. It's about a $5000 repair and I can't even get anyone at Snow to give me the time of day. Check out my bent rod on YouTube at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xA37...ature=youtu.be

If you have any Snow stuff on your truck with an anti siphon solenoid don't trust it.

I was just running a Smarty in the 120HP setting. The Millage Max really doesn't have a wide range of settings. You set it up according to the installation directions and let it run. The boost level is the main thing that regulates the amount being sprayed. I only run either distilled water or your standard 30 below windshield washer fluid which is 24% meth 76% distilled water.

I've been meaning to get a 55 gallon barrel of meth to mix my own at 50/50 but never got around to it. I can get a barrel for about $165 from a drag strip in Little River Texas.

I'm not super into the dodge world.
So what do most guys say is the power range where your motor starts bending rods?
Because meth/water injection is capable of giving you over 100hp gain. Now when you figure that, and running 120hp tune thats going to put some strain on your internals!
How heavy was your foot prior to bending the rod?
And have you made a practice of turning off the system a few minutes prior to shutting down the engine, or do you turn the key off and walk away?

Not saying you are to blame or anything.
Im just gathering the facts.

Cummins bottom ends are very stout, many have made over 1000HP on stock bottom ends. I know one personally.

Have to pay to play bud. Shit happens, keep it stock if you want the best reliability.

Also want to know more background information on everything instead of a video just blaming snow performance. Are you expecting them to cover your motor? Because I doubt that is going to happen. Same thing if a piston let's go in your motor, blame the piston all you want but the manufacturer isn't going to cover your motor unless your under factory warranty etc.

Also being that you had it for 2+ years any type of product warranty, etc. would most likely not apply. Sucks that it happened though for sure I would be upset also.

Ok I think some of you are missing the idea here......from what I got in the video, the water/meth kit somehow allowed the engine to fill with water over the weekend while it sat thus causing the bent rod upon starting it on Monday. It's not like he was romping on it at the track and it blew, it seems to be an actual product malfunction. NOW with that being said, I'm sure the kit probably isn't warrantied longer than a year or so....so unfortunately I still think the OP is sh!t out of luck.

Sounds like a hydro locked motor, could have been a leak in the nozzle that let enough into the intake to do that.
