    Im curious what broke in the LS1 motor. The T-rex cam is a HUGE cam for a turbo application and dudes around here have spun em a bit high and had piston/valve issues on stock blocks.

    Thats just plain weird what you have going on here. To clarify, you pulled the tranny and after that it simply wouldnt go into gear anymore? I thought for sure you broke the pump gears.
