Basically engines either measure up like this:

or they need to try products like this:

In this case it sounds like the guy that did the work needs to go find some products that probably won't help him anyway.

Never been up there. Always scared to take the boat to castle rock in fear of stump fields.

I must say....after all the crying I did after reading the thread and looking at the pics....this has been the scariest thread I've ever read. I seriously doubt there is anything in those engines that are re-usable in a pair of engines of that caliber. With only a few hours on them, it is absolutly wrong that anyone should go thru something like this, when he paid good money not to. just sayin. good luck and let us know what does work.

Rock On!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It's a blown engine nation!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

GET Real, you seem to be quite ignorant with crap coming out of you mouth like that. From reading your other posts directed at Youngs Performance about the 399 V, you obviousley have NO IDEA what is involved in building a engine like these.
