Holy shit!! Looks like someone took a jackhammer to your block. How exactly did that happen when only running those mods.. esp 100 octane.. Perhaps it wasn't exactly 100 octane? Seriously.. you could replace the 100 octane additive (or whatever you went with to achieve 100oct) with piss and it probably wouldn't blow up that bad.

it was 100 octane from sunoco. 6.60 a gal. It wasn't tuned any different for it. It had a 93 octane tune. The tune I had was shifting at almost 7,000 rpms, other than that with it being locked i dont know much about it. here is my dyno sheet showing how high it was set to rev.

Im no tuning expert, but it seems that 7,000 rpm is a bit high. It seems after 6300-6500 rpm your power and torque fell off, why not put the shifts somewhere in that rpm range? May be just a little to late for that though.

Thats the shitty part of having a locked tune.

IMO:
1. Send the pcm/tcm back to "vector'n" and have them flash it back to stock.

2. Take it back to dealer and ask,
you- "Can you fix my engine?"
dealer- "Why, whats wrong?"
you- "Well im missing the other side of my block and need to see about gettin that bolted up today"

Seriously though, do step 1 and then tow it to the dealer and work it out from there. Should be under warranty.
Either way, that flat out sucks no matter how you look at it.. Good luck.

he already got screwed... GM wont fix it under warranty, say it was "abused" because (get this)... he had the spare tire inside the back of the cargo area and had some rubber on the inside of the rear bumper (from the track).. what a fukin joke, his motor was knocking for a month or more... his only mistake was not taking it in and having them document the noise.. seriously though? the friggin rod bolt was LOOSE from the factory, it just got worse over time and finally let go.. that's his fault?

Thats equivalent to not swapping out a blown speaker because there are swirl marks in the paint. Who are they to critique cleanliness? I guess they figure, if he didn't clean this up... then what DID he clean up. But thats bullshit. ugh. warrantys are for shit.

Nothing wrong with that....where else are you going to get rubber on your rear fenderwells? I would get Vector to pay for the new rebuild since he set the shifts so damn high without asking you if you wanted them that high. I would never pull the stock parts over 6500, you're just asking for trouble if you do.
