Should be fine... surface crack/casting mark. Some brand new blocks look like that.

So your complaining that you modified your car using non stock parts to gain performance, you broke something, and your not getting it fixed on their dollar?

How does this sound, I sell you a computer, it works perfectly fine on what is put into it. You overclock it, overheat something and it wont boot anymore. Do you think Ill fix it for free?

Not at the rear wheel atleast. The 4th gen LS1 motors won't reliably handle that power either. I have seen 2 LS1 motors make 618 and 633 at the tires with stock internals and they were on borrowed time.

I call BS... any lawyer that actually knows the act will clearly figure out that your downpipe & AP affected engine output power. Or maybe the lawyer had some free time and needed a sucker (you) to pay for some court time.

Your mods of a downpipe w/engine management will cause denial of any and all warranty claims to the powertrain, as it rightly should. You increased the horsepower by some not-insignificant amount, what do you expect? Its people like you that make it a pain for everyone else! (in other words, that is me thanking you for leaving the suby community)


Good luck getting any warranty claims on your 700hp crapmaro.
