IF it'll take THAT kind of abuse repeatedly, its got my respect. almost TWO minutes on the rev limiter, no cooling in the motor, boiled oil, and it STILL runs alright, all I can honestly say is HOLY CRAP.

They beat sh*t out of a 6R engine. They ran the engine at 8K+ rom for 30m. THe water boiled out of the radiator. Then they drained the oil and only put a litre back in it. Ran the rpm up to the rev limiter. After about a minute and a half they burned holes in the header and exhaust pipe. They shut it down put out the fire with a fire extinguisher. Let it cool topped it off with oilstarted it up the next day, it ran smoothly.
