That's the price you pay to mod a car still under warranty. I don't know what you're looking for as far as suggestions, but I'd say take the car to a reputable performance shop and get it stroked and rebuilt for that price.

Once it breaks, don't replace- upgrade.

How does the warranty from Magnuson work? I bought my maggie from "markbinkc"(he had that sick prochargered V), I believe that he stated that he purchased the warranty when he got the charger. If this charger came with this coverage do you think I would be able to use it?

SURE, that will work :rolleyes: NOT.

Second party purchase and it wasn't the SC that failed.

Just buy a new motor! Only about 1,200 more and then that way you will have spare parts for the next blown motor.

Since getting headers and the cam mine POP's at idler once it's warmed up... Guy said to give it a couple hundred miles and if it still does it bring it back. Is this bad? Runs fine, just during idle...

Most likely an exhaust leak at the headers sucking cooler air into your exhaust that's making that "pop" noise.

More of a nusiance than a real problem. However, I hate an exhaust leak because it sounds like crap so I fix 'em.

Love the pic! Avatar? I was told the round connectors on the kooks leak and it's best to get them welded on, wonder if this is the leak?! May get it welded tomorrow and see if that helps. Also been having the engine light come on and off occasionally, could a leak also cause this if it's before the O2 sensors?

Might check Scoggin and Dickey for a "proper" forged short block. For a little more than that amount, you can move up to 408 or possibly even a 427 don't ya know!:bouncy: Still cheaper than possibly doing it again with another stocker - As they say in ol Mexico, "If you're going to play with the Bull - you have to be prepared to take the Horn!":stirpot: Or as they say north of the Border, "The tuition to the School of Experience is subject to increase without prior notice!":rolleyes: Sorry the tuition bill has come in.

:thepan:
What are they saying caused it?
Luna, Right now they aren't saying what the cause is. All they said is if they report this to GM for approval a rep will most definately come and void my whole warranty before the door even closes behind him.
I'm really sitting on the fence b/c whose to say there aren't a couple more pistons about to blow? I am already getting an ear full from the wife. I couldn't imagine trying to tell her 3 months later we have to fix it again :eek::rant2::rant2::thepan:.

Do the dishes with the wife as sort of a team building excercise - Have her remove her rings and key in on where she drops them. Middle of night "after" the evenings frolic switch her diamonds out with CZ's...Life is good but it's time to get "creative"...

edit - CZ story based on true facts from my brother in fla- onebadcad...

pm me for more creative ideas...trust me, I have plenty!
