Without knowing the full details on the life of the engine, no one can speculate on what caused the failure. For all anyone knows the engine was revved well past 6500 from a missed shift and caused chatter...Not long before the block is going to check out.

Also, just because one guy makes 750whp on his block for 7 years and 856 nitrous passes at the track, doesn't mean the next guy who builds the same thing will have the same results. Any number of things can cause failures, tune, debris, bad luck, satan, oil starvation, or it could have been something in the crank itself that no one could have possibly detected.


Side note, ALOT more than a few of them have split exactly where the pictured one did. I would suspect the block just had a failure and there is nothing anyone could have done. Most likely, just horrible luck on your side.
