yeah, like pewdiepie (who got famous making video game videos mostly), he makes ~11million a year; roughly 21k per video. Of course hes at like 102 million subscribers, so he is a very extreme case; but you can definitely make a living from it with way less subscribers

He's got a 2.5-inch 'pullie' Yep, that sounds about right :cwl:
One thing about forced induction, the boost IE compression level cannot exceed the engine internal, maximum "safe" operational limits. One thing I have learned when I was young and dumb, down sizing blower pullies or increasing NOS Nozzles to increase HP to have more power (and fun), without making sure first my Rods, pistons, valves etc will handle it, cost me a lot of money. But that is life, but this also educated me on how to build race engines correctly.

That's some catastrophic damage there.

I'll be interested to hear what they determine was the issue. I'll guess it was just all too much for the internals, no real, singular problem.

Detonation from to high of compression will grenade a engine faster than a sledge hammer, been their, done that. Usually you lose a valve or exceed the oiling capability on the crank, rod or piston bearings

I can't stand this guy's videos... just pure clickbait trash. 20+ mins of BS and fluff, one minute about the point. Heck, that seems to be most Youtubers these days... but there are a few exceptions.
Yep, but I just move fast forward, but getting people to hit the subscribe or like buttons, I guess that is where they make their money. And now I see like 4 or 5 of them giving cars away? And then I see girls working on cars in bikinis, shear cloths ect working on cars. Man, anything for a dollar. But I'm not a hater, I like seeing people working and making a living. God Bless America😁

If he is blaming E85 it must have been one ragged edge tune. You get most of the benefits of corn north of 70% anyway. Does this stangmode even have a job/career beyond Boobtube...?
