Default Surgery begins - some initial findings

Well, thanks to Andrew at WeTune the engine is out and we have some interesting initial findings.
The left side head gasket appears to have failed and coolant leaked out of the engine in this area. Unknown if the head gasket failure is the ultimate cause of the intermixed coolant -oil milkshake and subsequent failure of the rod bearings.
We also noticed that the cam cover/cap blew out of the engine, probably due to the high volume of coolant and oil intermixed in the engine. None the less there were lots of metal shards that came out of the cam cover and got stuck into the firewall insulation just ahead of the cam cover. Lots of metal bits floating around in the head and in the crank area make for a catastrophic result.
Next step is to send it to the engine rebuilders for a teardown and diagnosis of the cause. A rebuilt 3.6 is in the plans. Sorry for the 3.8-4.0 advocates. The philosophy of the rebuild is to have bullet proof reliability for DEs rather than ultimate HP. A big, bad ***, top end horsepower motor will make me temporarily faster but not necessarily a better driver. A reliable track engine will allow for years of trouble free seat time, which is the final goal after all. Just in case you’re wondering, it will not be “stock” and it WILL have both grunt and enough horsepower.
So who is the engine builder of choice????
That’s a surprise for now, let’s just say the engine is “goin down south to dixy.”






Blown head gasket?
It's out<br/>

Sorry about the problem but I think you have a good plan.
Good time of year to do it as well.

Hey Stan,

Been there,done that ... lol
I'm sure Andrew will have a few performance tricks up his sleeve to make your new engine
breathe a little better and make better use of that 94 octane fuel.

You're in good hands with WeTune !

Hey Stan:
In the for sale thread is a 4.0L Cayman motor.......asking US$20K OBO......take a look......BUT, if you do this I'll never be able to pass you, unless you are headed into the pits and I am still headed onto the front straight.

Not sure about me being faster, a good driver(such as yourself) is worth more time than a big motor. Thanks for the heads up on the ad. I have seen it and a price reduction in being offered ($17,500usd). My engine has already left to a warmer climate for a stout rebuild, so I will pass on this one.
