    I saw a couple that looked like Bananas. One from an LS1 on the juice that spun a bearing due to low oil, and one from a crown vic motor (4.6L 2V) that ingested water.

    the post above you happened due to neglecting common maintanance and the engine in the pic was seized while on the trans brake so there should not have been any nitrous involved at the time it seized I would think. Nitrous is safe, to much power on stock internals isnt

    NO this is NOT my motor! It was brought in like this. It is a 383 early style SBC.

    The rods were in the last motor they ran that had a broken crank. They insisted on using the rods from the old motor.

    This is NOT a Nitrous motor.

    It was actually in the staging lanes warming up on the trans. brake.

    I've got a stock factory BB 427 rod that is bent about 60 degrees just below the wrist pin. It tapped an intake valve at 7200 rpm and hydrauliced the motor going through the traps. It is strange how they will bend and not break, unless you try to do it in a vise.
