Poor little piston

It looks like a tiny cutting torch was used.

Re: Poor little piston

That was a piston in my stock 305 with a 150 shot of N2O.
Then this motor trashed the T5.

Re: Poor little piston

were you running any kind of ignition timing retard like a MSD box to pull out timing when N2O was flowing? or did you just have a wet/dry shot on standard timing ?

Re: Poor little piston

I used a wet shot and standard timing. I never expected the stock 305 motor would last.
Nitrous on a stock 305 is only temporary and kind of a waste. I used it to justify the need to stroke it

Re: Poor little piston

Yes, Hi Rich. I relocated to Lake Forest in south Orange county.

I'm still cooking tri-tip and tattooing asphalt.
