Thank you my friend did most of the work.

I did have an issue with the transmission coming loose so probably stress from that if i had to guess

Update : Worked on getting rid of the factory light assembly as it’s heavy compared to this baby light bar.

And ordered some parts for raven fab they have some nice thermostat housings. And water pipe solutions.

I like how the coolant water pipe comes with the angle on the side .
We usually bang the thing out the pipe with a hammer to make the turbo fit.

Thank you.

I take it as a learning experience. Got greedy with the nitrous in 3rd and not enough injector therefore it melted. I’m sure this happened over time after to pull after pull.

I will tune around this current setup not have the nitrous on in 2nd or 3rd get the launch dialed in.

Maybe later I’ll add another 4 injectors and direct port nitrous … but for now my let me walk before i can run …

When i melted the head some aluminum got welded to the deck of the block.

Checked for flatness and had a high spot.
With muriatic acid it softened the aluminum and used red scotch pad. After I was done with the affected area i neutralized the acid with baking soda.

Now just waiting for the head to be done…

How much boost and timing were you running? :oops:
My son melted a piston in #3 and I was going to use sulfuric acid in that cylinder to try and get it broke loose. Is muriatic acid a better solution?
Love the "monster"!!!
Marty
Thanks ! Muriatic acid i have access to it at Home Depot.

That deck surface looks a little rough for a mls. You might consider getting it apart and getting the deck tuned up. Also might be wise to check the shortblock for damage too.
