All the guys in my club were always on me to race them "engine only". (I know they were just jealous 'cause they DIDN'T have nitrous). They all constantly warned me that my nitrous system would be the death of my engine. I always say "Just like guns don't kill people, PEOPLE kill people, nitrous doesn't kill engines, people with nitrous that don't know what they're doing kill engines." ..............................:morons:.......................Well, after it took a dump on me today on the freeway during a club drive, mid-spray, it looks like it may be dead.
It actually might not be that bad. It idles rough with ALOTTA noise from the valve cover and a flashing C.E.L., but it idles and that's gotta be good, right? (HaHa) The OBD2 scanner says "cylinder #2 misfire".
I just got home in a friend's truck, with the tow truck following us, my car on back. I'm gonna sit back, rest a little, collect my thoughts and then go out to the garage, take the valve cover off and take a look. The ironic thing,(actually "things", plural) is that I was talking with a friend the day before yesterday about rebuilding the engine and yesterday I bought a second, smaller nitrous system to use out of the hole. So today it takes a dump on me and it happens while I was sprayin it.
If you don't remember what grilledchEEze drives it's a lowered 1999 ZX2 on 205 40 17's with the usual bolt ons,(headers, 2 1/2" exhaust, cold air intake) a few other small items and a ZEX wet nitrous system. It runs 13's in the 1/4 and 8's in the 1/8. The fastest I've had it up to on a wide open straight is 137 mph,( it was still climbing slowly with me sprayin on and off ) but I ran outta straight. It was probably about a full mile, maybe a little less. I haven't been able to find any longer ones. I'd really like to see what it tops out at.
SO ANYWAY..........I'm going to eat, then go take a look. I'll be back with an update later.

My question is, how big of a hole did you put through piston #2?? That or where the rest of one of the valves that got burnt off went to??
