    Now what?!

    Ok first time to the track ever. 01 ss m6 spec3+, ms3 cam, headers, slp exhaust and a lid on nitto drags....10 bolt lol but anyway first pass 12.64 then a 12.38 (was getting better) then went out again think i missed a gear and over revved and bent a valve white smoke blew out the back and when i stoped it was comin out through the intake? pulled the valve covers and no broken springs so guess its time for that head swap?!

    I would bet you bent a pushrod....pull those pushrods and look at them. Are you still on stock pushrods?

    The 918's should take it... My rev limit is 7400, and I've bounced many times on the bottle... Put air into each cylinder, one at a time, then you will find which one went.
