Really bad news.

So i finally finished up my 3v aluminator installed my whipple on my 05 gt. i started it up and let it idle for a bit. About 5 minutes later i took it for a spin. And i heard the most terrifing noise ever. Ofcouse engine stalled. It wouldnt start. I pulled everything out and the springs gave in. All that money i spent is gone. I dont even wanna fix it up anymore.

Have you tried MMR? Modularmustangracing.com? They have some good shortblock specials.

See, relatively cheap.

that really sucks !!! I bought my forged engine from promar performance engines and they gave me a year warranty in writing and guaranteed it running 18psi... you should talk to AL when you do decide to fix up your baby they would be taking care of you right now !!
