    well i was racing my ls/vtec setup just at a local 1/8th mile track, and on the third run, at about 8600rpm i felt it cut out, and then when i let off there was a big loud miss in the engine..any idea what it could be, i thought it was just the plugs but i changed those and it still wont start up now, i drove it part of the way home missing then it just cut out on me and died going down the road. If anyone could help that would be great?>

    What is the Chassis? EG, EF, EK? Spark plugs will DEFINATLY not cause an Audibly loud miss, and usually a spark plug or wire miss is from crap building up, not abuse.

    Check the rotor?

    Timing belt could have jumped, too.

    Sounds like you dropped the valves man. Was the engines dieseling on the way home. Does the engine turn over at all? I mean i could see this happening if you exceeded 8600 rpm and just red lined the shit out of it. To me it sounds like you dropped the valves. I'd check the head out for sure. thats where i'd start. then go from there.

    WOW thats a bold statement.... I have an LS/VTEC wanna race????? My engine is trash right???? You should have no problem beating me right????? Hell my engine will probably blow while we are racing since it's trash.... what a bold fucking statement.
    Stupid Noob.. STFU

    Will your motor start or does it make a grinding noise.... I am saying your timing belt tensioner
    went out and you have bent valves my friend. Just a guess though.

    Thats odd, your 2 cents aren't worth two cents. I think they're counterfeit. :huh:


    Anyway, figure out anything? Are you still around, ikon?

    LOL, but i was serious, i mean your taking a motor thats built for 7k and your pushing its limits to 8600almost 9grand, theres somethign BOUND to go wrong. I just hope in his case it wasnt anything serious and can be fixed fairly easy, i know first hand how rebuilding motors go

    if you want to be lapped come through. Oh and what other motor besides a built LS/VTEC makes power at 8500???? Anyways good luck to you my friend. I wish you the best.

    IKON I hope you figured out what was wrong, let us know.

    I am rebuilding my motor for more power not cuz it's broke, sorry you can't make it July 1 to Laguna Seca it's a gorgeous track.
    Oh and I am only doing a head rebuild..... stock bottom :)
    If you are ever in Cali my offer stands.
