I guess since it broke 3 out of 6 pistons it's only half blown up :D

Had a nitrous solenoid leak while the car was off, didnt have any idea. went it to start the car, it reved to 9K or so instantly and it was done.

At least you didn't have a nitrous explosion when you cranked it. I've seen pieces of a head put a hole in the hood!
in norwalk this past summer at the dsm shootout john shepards talon did the same thing when he was picking up his time slip...blew off a chunk of his intake manifold threw it through the hood and hit the guy passing out the slips..guy wasnt hurt though luckly

that shit is violent

NOS can be some scary stuff.

I thought you had a AEM EMS? The fuel cut feature would have saved ya, basically it shuts off fuel if RPMS are too high and the throttle is kept low. Intended for fuel mileage by cutting fuel on decel, but it would have worked in your case.

I don't think you understand how quick this happened. Basicly the car sat in the parking lot with the motor filling itself with nitrous, when I hit the key the motor was FULL of n20. It reved to 8+k <off my tach> INSTANTLY, my foot was no where near the gas pedal. There was no backfire, or anything like that the car just flat reved. When it came down to idle <within a second of starting> it was knocking, so i shut it off and called a tow truck :(

i guess now you'll turn off your bottle when your not using it.. that sucks.

The reason the bottle was open was becuase I was getting ready to race. I don't make a habbit of leaving the bottle on for no reason.
