:) :nana:  
after less than a month driving my GTR after my perfect gearbox rebuilt, i was cruising today on 3rd gear, then i decided to shift to second gear to overtake a car, i down shifted , car accelerates like a missile, then 1 k before cutoff i hear a uninterupted sound like trrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr coming from the engine, and some smoke going out of the engine, i look at the oil pressure and oil light in dash they are ok , i look in my rear view mirror and i see oil , i shift to neutral shut down the car and go to the side of the road to stop. i get down of the car open the engine from where smoke is going out, and i see all the oil under the car... at that point i was CONVINCED its an oil pipe that is broken, i called road service to get towed, go to the workshop, and... guess what............ broken cylinder block...... something seems to have broken on the crank, or piston or pushrods and made a big mess..the block is broken on both sides, i guess the broken part blew off left then right.. i was running on AP stage 2 97 version 2.0
the bad news:
- i got AP ,  Y pipe and 5zigen, car is already blacklisted and out of warranty :( :(
-new engine is 55,000 us$$$$!!!!!!!!!!!
-i'm really really pissed
-i hate nissan management!
-we don't know yet the extent of the damage inside the engine


the only good news:
unlike the GR6, nissan sells engine parts and not only complete assembly.. otherwise i would put fuel on the car and burn it in front of the nissan showroom


here is some pics, can anyone share any experience with the engine? any thoughts what could have happened? is there is any other cases with broken cylinders blocks????  i cant believe that the AP software upgrade could have blow off the engine.. these engines should support more than 70hp of upgraded power IMO

im in love with the gtr but i HATE nissan

Man, this sux.  I don't think that ap software caused this problem but Nissan will claim it did.  I'm sorry to hear about this.  Maybe you can get a Jun block or something.  Good luck with everything.

Looks like the #2 piston failed based off the location of the hole and rod head sticking thru the engine code tag.

I was making 550hp when it went. Don't think its due to bad motors. :helpsmilie:
The early cars make more power then the later cars. Proven time and time again on the dyno.
During the rebuilt of mine I found a couple discrepancies between the FSM and the parts measured coming out of the old motor. Those would account for some of the power differences.

bare block is like 2600 bux from nissan.   As long as you didnt destroy anything with your head, i think you can build a block for probably in the 10-12k range.. not 55000.. that to me sounds like a complete long block.

What does one do if they blow an engine and it is blacklisted with no warranty?? Can you get insurance to cover it? Or are you just S.O.L.??
