Believe it or not but everything is ok, the crank, rods, pistons and cam are all fine. The motor stayed together but that's because of the bellhousing, intake manifold and timing cover. If it wasn't for those it would have been all over the engine bay and the road. One thing you need to look out for is coolant. When the engine died, I got out of the car and noticed coolant was all over the ground. Check my sig for numbers.

Well I'm not upset at all, I knew it was going to happened I just didn't know when. It kinda gives off a cool vibe, knowing that my car made enough power to split the block in half. Oh Well its time to build big and better things.
Held together by the bellhousing, intake manifold & timing cover! Jeezus.
He's not angry about it in the slightest either.

If it was an LS1, it would only be a negative "customer preception problem" rather then a motor of mass destruction.

Re: Poor little Windsor just couldn't take it.

Not a bad effort at all, and the stock crank, rods and pistons all survived. The windsor blocks are known to survive 500hp at the flywheel at the most, so he got his money worth.

That is a big crack, split the whole motor in half!! I hope I have enough power to do that one day LOL.
