Since the weather was nice last night and
Was on the freeway with a long straightaway, I switched on my meth map and punched it.

Next thing I know, I see my boost spiking to 30+psi and a loud ass BOOM as if something exploded. I coast to a stop and RPMs are fluctuating and AFRs are everywhere.

NOT GOOD

I am expecting the worst....
I pull over look under my car and NO OIL!!!!! Yay!!!!

Pop the Hood and my IC pipe Blew right off of the turbo.
The force was so strong that it cracked the bracket that bolts down the CP-E IC pipes. I had no tools so I just put it together and drove home. Shes still good as new Im hoping........

Man do I need another hobby. Driving this damn car is not good for my health.

Sorry, I just had to say this.

Holy crap Yoichi! I bet your butthole puckered up and turned inside out at the sound of that.
Hope everything is ok.

lol I know the feeling. Once my boost caused my (at the time) turbosmart BPV to shear the bolts that hold it together and made the top half of it fly off and hit my hood. Bout shit myself.

Also, Want the stang gt. Though not until 2013 or so. xD Let them work out any kinks it may have and the aftermarket pioneers do their thing without my help.

Shit, the car hasn't even come out yet and it has 10x the aftermarket parts that we have. Insanity!

line to the ewg also was loose. thats probably why it spiked and blew off the IC pipe. I need to zip tie that hose real good.

Wow. You had me scared for you for a minute! Same thing happened to me a while back. Nailed it, hit full boost and boom! Lost all power and scared the shit out of me. The coupler blew off the turbo.

Tightened up the wastegate line and secured the IC pipes last night. Idle/AFR is tits on and the car is back to normal.

This damn motor is literally bulletproof so far

Phew

OH GOD!!! This EXACT same scenario happened to me! I remember I was just going to pick up a buddy (to go pick up an engagement ring for my chick) when it happened. I pulled over as my car was limping along and had already accepted that I was going to need a new engine. I was thinking how I would finance a forged build and what I could do for a car in the meantime. Pop the hood, see my pipes blown off, and I was one happy fuck!

It's like when you get that text message that says, "I'm a week late, just thought I'd let you know." and then a "false alarm" follow message up the next day hahahaha.
