Ya'll Aren't Gonna Believe This Crap!!!!!!

I'm gonna kill somebody or something. TRUCK is back in the shop! This time only I blew a Piston, Cracked Heads again, and whatever else there is! I swear if this has anything to do with Whipple, I'm gonna fly out there and whoop up on somebody.

I just don't know what the problem is at all...02 Tremor with 56K on it and it breaks a Piston on it and everything else around it. Its just retarded, I baby the hell out of this thing and every now and then I give it gas. But rarely do you ever see me racing or anything at all..

I just want to see what this bill is gonna be on me! I might as well just get a built high performance engine for this whipple...

Just beware if anyone wants a Whipple, you better prepare to spend money on getting the right equipment to use that sucker!

Oh yea, on top of that, the MUSTANG is in the shop getting repaired as well, since the other half drove it in to a ditch and hit a telephone pole! I will post up pics later when I get it loaded up on that one! $7,000 worth of damage there!

EDIT: PICS OF STANG

dont forget her mail boxes too!!!

id get rid of the 3l, and go with a 4l and EE. but you still have the whipple tab on your hands though.

will they warrant anything since you installed it? or does it have to be done by a shop?

I love my bottle.

I don't think its so much the whipple as it is the 3.0 itself. 3litrebeater blew a rod right through his oilpan, TremJohns was like a popcorn machine pinging.. a Local guy had a 3.0 in his 02 tremor that had the crank snap at 38,000miles..

Don't know what to tell ya. Your in Florida, no emissions laws.. I'd do a small block swap after selling the v6 and its parts.

Yea, The mailboxes 2 weeks prior to the ditch as well! LOL....Well, its the Whipple is still under warranty till April I believe, so if it has something to do with that, I will make sure that Whipple gets the damages sent to them as well! I highly doubt that it will have any affect on who installs this SC...


I was thinking about getting a NEW 302 slapped under the hood and call it the day...Just waiting on the shop to call me to tell me whats going on...Will hear from them in the morning!

huh, if you blew apart a piston it looks like its time for some forged pistons in that 3.0. do you have an a/f gauge? was it running lean when it happened? was it detonating?
