We picked up a GTR today that blew its built motor 40 miles after being built somewhere else.  We're going to post a video of the complete teardown later on in this thread!

Yes.  If you're going to start a thread basically saying another builder blew up a car, at least give specifics.

I never said it was the builder could be the tuner. I'm just curious whom or who built it and what parts were used if WGP is open to disclosing it.

I'll list and provide photos of everything we find, but I'm leaving it up to the owner to call out the builders and tuners.

Who cares about who built it, im interested in seeing why it failed and where the error was in either build or tune.
