As some know i bought a built 460 from a guy that is putting down some serious horsepower, engine is a 460 with dove c heads, decked .020, lunati camshaft .564 lift intake, .580 lift exhaust on a 106 lobe sep, full roller tip rockers, comp cams guide plates, comp cams hardened chromoly push rods. The engine really ran hard and strong for over 2500 miles when i was driving today and it felt like a spark plug wire came off and a cylinder wasnt firing!(no noise), oil pressure then dropped from 45 at 2000 rpms, to 20-25 fluctuating at 2000, so i pulled it back into the garage and took off the drivers side valve cover and found what is pictured. Word to the wise with any other do it yourselfers at home building a street machine, all the high priced goods wont do anyone any good without good quality bolts and fastners to hold it together, dont cheap out on that stuff like this guy did, now im removing most fasteners on the engine and changing them out for arp hardened steel to be on the safe side. This sucks because i have a cruise with her tommarow and unless i get them early(next day air from summit) i wont be going!!!!It literally snapped right under the poly lock, and yes geometry is perfect!!!
