What had happen was... WE MADE TO MUCH DAMN POWER!!!
The OEM case bolts were not up to the task of holding the case together which caused the mains to go .005 out do to it stretching and the crank moving back and forth but is being fixed by the machine and we are going to refresh with new bearings all around, new piston rings, ARP case bolts and recheck all clearances so we can hit the 600 mark before taking it to MIR to wreck house!
Heads are already completed as well so once the shortblock is back together, we will use ARP L19 headstuds to make the heads dont separate from the block and make some F**king jam!!!
NICE hope it works out
