noshine, sorry to hear about your engine failure. I know exactly what your going through.

It happened to me last year, I had the Sleeper kit installed on a 19 Bullitt and 350 miles later it threw a timing chain. Disappointment isn't a word to describe it, it was a devastating blow to my psyche, what a let down, I know exactly how you feel.

In my case I think it may have been improper installation of the oil pump gears, the shop I used had a heck of a time finding a tool to pull parts of an 18+ so I'm inclined to believe something got messed up with the harmonic balancer in the process or it was simply a bad set of OPG's - who knows.

The simple fact is this hobby, while exhilarating, is also expensive and heartbreaking sometimes.
I purchased a MMR 1000 longblock and the car's in process of being put back together as I write this. I sure hope I have better luck this time, and I wish the same for you.

Your belief is most likely spot on. Finding the right person to do the job is a job in itself.
