Well, after blowing two pistons at the Texas Mile and finally get my ride back on the road recently, thought I'd at least get a short video together with the car running before it blew up!

It's not much, but it's at least a few good memories from the event.

Cool video! Did it blow on that pass or a different one? What was the culprit?

Thanks! The video was a combination of all passes (even the one where it let go)The passenger side video was the one where it died, but it was very anti-climatic.. no noise.. no explosion.. no smoke or file. Just died coming off the track to the return road.

Sustained boost..not enough fuel. Was OK the previous passes though. (AFR)

Sorry she blew. Did you have a fuel pump voltage booster set up? Or bigger pump set up?

Flow Charger BAP.

I didn't data log the last run so I have no concrete reason why it let go. But, I'm suspecting a bad or intermittent fuel pump. All it takes is a very short hiccup for something to go drastically wrong.
