No disrespect Skully, but why do people always come to the conclusion that it's the tune? Does everyone think that a daily driven 11 second car is going to last forever!!! Get a grip people. Engines fail and it would not matter how conservative a tune is if the block is putting down serious power it's not if it's going to fail it's WHEN. And lets face it, with an 11 second car their is no such thing as conservative.................

I feel for STi_Guy04 as I know too well what it's like to loose an engine but the key is to identify what actually failed and fix it for the next time.

Yes, a bad tune can break engines but it's unlikely that a car that runs multiple 11 second passes has a bad tune. Maybe the water/meth injection failed?

It's good that STi_Guy04 spotted the issue now before the whole engine lets go. This will reduce the rebuild cost.
