RIP to my truck. She died on 9-13-2011 at 8:25 am at exit 260 on I-75 in Florida. Cant complain one bit, she was a hell of a runner! Plans right now are LB7 slugs, Carillos, head studs, some head work, maybe a cam and a bigger turbo. Goals are a solid 800hp street truck. Probably wont start tearing into it until after Thanksgiving. I'll update this as the build progresses.

That's a huge bummer Chris! What happened? Where you running it hard or just cruising? Think you cracked a piston or something else?

How'd it happen? I'm thinking of doing the same exact setup as you have/had on your LBZ with my LMM, but my wife (congrats to you and your future wife) will KILL me if that happened to my truck! May just do the EGR delete and leave it alone!:rolleyes: Start my saving for a C7 ZO6! Chris

Tell her to be quiet, shit happens. It's not like you'd give her a tongue lashing if the washer took a dump:rolleyes:

A strong, opinionated, Italian lady that tells me to leave my truck alone, but as you can see I already ignored all that,:D doesn't like to be told to be quiet!
I have a history of modding vehicles only to have them blow gaskets, tranny, motors, rear ends, every vehicle I've owned until this one hasn't lasted! They were bought used and didn't cost $50K+! She has been with me for every single issue and every time she told me to leave it alone or something will happen! I think she's cursing my vehicles now that I think about it!:rofl
Chris

But to be honest, I'm completely happy with the LMM as it is now, and I'm looking forward to getting that ZO6!:gearjamin

Not to completely hijack, but do (some) women take classes on how to just piss guys off sometimes!:D Sorry back on topic, so were you getting on it hard, or just cruising when it went Chris? I'll take your 4094 if you decide to go a different way with the turbo setup on your built motor! :thumb

Yea I had to tell mine to shut the F**K a few times. She makes it seem like I force her to wear rags and blow everything on wut I want. Jeez I swear, take the spot light off them for two secs and they lose their f**king minds.

Quit whining! Wussy!:neener

I also want to know how it was being driven at the time of issue.
Whenever I'd blow valves off on motocross bikes it was never when Riding hard, it was always when I let off.
